Under the theme ‘Leading the Transformation’, the ADIPEC Awards 2023 has eight new categories that respond to key global challenges, as well as the need for universal access to cleaner and more secure energy and the tangible and credible solutions necessary to deliver real change during the energy transition.
The ADIPEC Awards 2023 has attracted a record 1,072 entry submissions from 78 countries. The 21 finalists represent a wide range of industries and come from the Middle East, Europe, Asia, and the Americas. The winners will be announced at a gala dinner on 2 October as part of ADIPEC, which will run from 2-5 October in Abu Dhabi.
Fatema Al Nuaimi, chairperson of the ADIPEC Awards 2023 and executive vice president, Downstream Business Management at ADNOC, said, “I am delighted to see the intense competition for our all-new categories from global leaders, pioneers and disruptors who are capturing emerging opportunities, driving transformative change and rethinking what it means to be an oil, gas and energy business today. The shortlisted entries demonstrate the industry’s readiness, leadership and commitment to helping reshape the industry and support global climate and energy challenges for a sustainable tomorrow.”
This year’s ADIPEC Awards finalists include solutions that exemplify visionary progress on decarbonisation and game-changing thinking, including responsible energy management that converts pollutants into sustainable fuels and chemicals to lithium-ion battery recycling methods. One initiative focuses on global-scale decarbonisation through a transparent certification platform for low-carbon products to drive competitive decarbonisation worldwide, encompassing various energy carriers. Another submission seeks to establish the world’s largest green hydrogen plant, integrating renewable energy sources on an unprecedented scale and promising substantial carbon-free hydrogen production.
ADIPEC 2023 is expected to attract more than 160,000 attendees and will feature more than 1,600 conference speakers across more than 350 sessions. More than 2,220 companies from across the energy ecosystem will showcase their ideas, innovations and solutions that are shaping the future of energy.
