France participation in WFES.

The ambassador word:

Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW) was marked in 2013 by the presence of the President of the Republic of France, Mr. François Hollande, and, at the inaugural ceremonies, his keynote speech on the challenges arising from the climate change. On this occasion, my services had organized with Ubifrance, Masdar and IRENA, a series of side events on major sustainable development and clean energy topics. A year later, they organize again at the World Future Energy Summit (WFES) during ADSW, three events gathering experts, academics, policy makers, public, industrial and IRENA partners interested.

I have the honor to invite you to these three events, which will be held at ADNEC and which will focus on:

- The development of geothermal resources: January 20 at 12.00 (room: Capital Suite n°3),
- The integrated approach for sustainable cities: January 21 at 11.00 (room: Sustainable Living Expo Theater), with a presentation of the French initiative Vivapolis.
- Storage: a solution for solar energy? : January 22 at 12.00 (room : Capital Suite n°3).

France intends through these events to underline the consistency and the determination of its commitment in the development of close cooperation with the United Arab Emirates and with many of IRENA partners present, on these issues.

You will find here enclosed the detailed programme of these events. We would be very keen if you could join them and contribute with your insights to discussions that we hope will be fruitful and useful for the international community.

French Ambassador to the United Arab Emirates
