In partnership with Symbiose Communication Environment and Event One Solutions International, Brussels Energy Club presents a unique green energy exhibition and dialogue platform in Algeria:
INTERNATIONAL SMART CITY CONGRESS
June 21-23, 2022
The Congress consists of the exhibition and the conference intended for the corporations, policymakers, and experts to gather, show, and discuss how the energy transition will unfold in the MENA countries and Africa in the current decade.
In 2021, the Algerian Ministry of Energy Transition and Renewable Energy launched its strategy based on three key pillars: energy efficiency and energy savings, development of renewable energies and development of the national energy model. In terms of energy efficiency and savings, Algeria is focusing on the development of the least polluting and most available substitution fuels: LPG, LPG/Gasoil and CNG. In addition, the paramount goal is green hydrogen development. All available renewable resources are targeted for a clean energy mix (solar, wind, biomass, geothermal energy, biogas, wood.) The national 2030 energy model will be dependent on the cooperation of industrial, housing, transport, agriculture, and energy sectors. The new strategy is expected to spur the growth of investment in the public and the private sector by 2030.
In that regard, the development of smart cities is seen as an important element in the energy transition and climate change agenda. The MENA and Africa need to join this evolvement: the Smart Cities Congress in Algeria aims to be the high-level event gathering the two shores of the Mediterranean and the African continent each year by launching the first Congress in June 2022.
The Congress is going to take place under the patronage of the Algerian Ministries of Environment, Energy transition and RES, Housing Support and the National Waste Treatment Agency. It is organized by Symbiose Communication Environment and Event One Solutions International.
The Congress will be officially opened by
Mrs Samia Moualfi, the Minister of Environment
Mr Ziane Ben Attou, Minister of Energy Transition and RES
Mr Noe Van Hulst, International hydrogen adviser at Gas Unie and Adviser on Hydrogen at the IEA
Mr Adel Kaoula, CEO of Symbiose Communication Environment
Mr Ahmed M. El Wakil, President of the Association of the Mediterranean Chambers of Commerce and Industry (ASCAME)
Mr Nasser Kamel, Secretary-General of the Union for the Mediterranean
Mr Enrique de Villamore Martin, director of the Regional Activity Center for Sustainable Consumption and Production at the UN Environment Program.
The Conference will have five panels:
Visions for the smart city
Smart city and energy transition
Sustainable buildings and cities
Smart city and circular economy
The new challenges and Local Governance.
