Market Analysis - Climate Congress 2017
Summary of Climate Change and Global Warming Conference:
Climate Change conference series is playing an important role to create awareness and providing a platform to share and discuss on different causes and effects of Climate Change on Earth. World’s average surface temperature has increased by around 0.6 degrees Celsius over last 100 years. It is mostly due to pollution, greenhouse gases and depletion of the ozone layer that protects the earth. Global warming is one of the main factors of climate change, leading to excessive flooding, forest fires and rise in global temperatures. Scientists predicted that due to on-going activities contributing to global warming, the average global temperature could increase between 1.4 and 6 degrees Celsius in the 21st century. We are inviting the whole world to gather at a single platform and to discuss the challenges and solutions for the Climate Change.
Scope and Importance of Climate Change Research:
The study and research on Climate Change is unlimited. The scope of Climate Change and Global Warming includes, Carbon Sequestration, Climate Change and Global Warming Evidences, Greenhouse Gases, Pollution and Climate Change, Climate Hazards, GIS and Remote Sensing, Climate Refugees, Ecology and Ecosystems, Renewable Energy, Bioenergy, Climate Solutions, Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Climate Policy. The scope of the meeting is to bring Climate Scientists and Environmental Scientists to evaluate the consequences of human-driven disruption of natural system.
The importance of Climate Change and Global Warming research is to evaluate the different kinds of effects of Climate Change on Earth and to find the solutions for it, so we came up with a theme “Earth is getting Warmer!! Challenges and Solutions for a Sustainable Environment.”
Why is it in Dubai, UAE:
Dubai has emerged as a global city and business hub of the Middle East, apart from that the UAE government has special concern on Climate Change, as follows:
The United Arab Emirates government creation of an Energy & Climate Change Directorate (ECC) within the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) was selected as the best solution to build the required capacity for managing UAE’s climate change and renewable energy agenda. The mandate for this new directorate includes both an international and domestic role.
The UAE and actions on Climate Change
The UAE lacks many of the most widespread renewable energy resources, with no potential for hydroelectric power or tidal power and relatively little biomass. Abu Dhabi has set a renewable energy target which it expects to meet largely through solar power, and 2010 has seen work begin on one of the world’s largest concentrating solar power plants. They are also developing geothermal cooling at Masdar City.
The UAE views peaceful nuclear energy as a significant contributor to meet increasing future electricity demand and as part of its strategy for the overall reduction in carbon emissions. With its nearly zero carbon footprint and high availability factor, it complements the UAE’s other renewable and low carbon energy sources, such as solar and clean fossil fuel power plants. A sizeable nuclear energy sector is being developed in the UAE which consists of four nuclear power reactors and the associated infrastructure, the first of which is scheduled for commercial operation in 2017.
- Energy Efficiency and Conservation:
From new standards for appliances such as air conditioning, to the cutting edge technologies being demonstrated in Masdar City, the UAE is putting efficiency at the heart of its domestic energy strategy.
Transportation is one of the fastest-growing sources of emissions worldwide. They are investing in new mass transit systems such as Dubai’s light rail system and a proposed high speed train.
New energy efficiency standards for buildings are being set at a national level for the UAE. In addition, the Urban Planning Council has developed the new Estidama label for sustainable buildings, the first standard adapted for this region and climate.
- Carbon Capture and Storage (clean fossil fuels):
Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a means of mitigating climate change by capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from large point sources such as power plants and storing it safely underground instead of releasing it into the atmosphere. The potential impact of CCS is huge. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says CCS could contribute between 10% and 55% of the cumulative worldwide carbon mitigation effort over the next 90 years. Technology for capturing of CO2 is already commercially available for large CO2 emitters, such as power plants. Storage of CO2, on the other hand is a relatively untried concept. The UAE is developing a major CCS project.
Members Associated with Climate Change Research:

Market Analysis on the Climate Change Research:
According to the Global Trends in Renewable Energy Investment Report 2015, the share of global investment accounted for by developing countries rose from 49% in 2014 to55% in 2015, with the dollar commitment at $155.9 billion, up from $131.5 billion the previous year. Developed economies invested $130.1 billion, compared to $141.6 billion in 2014.
The estimations for the needed financing for climate change vary according to the geographic, sectorial and activity coverage, timescale and phasing, target and the underlying assumptions. The 2010 the World Development Report preliminary estimates of financing needs for mitigation and adaptation activities in developing countries range from USD 140-175 billion per year for mitigation over the next 20 years with associated financing needs of USD 265-565 billion and USD 30 – 100 billion a year over the period 2010 - 2050 for adaptation. The International Energy Agency’s 2011 World Energy Outlook (WEO) estimates that in order to meet growing demand for energy through 2035, USD 16.9 trillion in new investment for new power generation is projected, with renewable energy (RE) comprising 60% of the total.
Many funding agencies or organizations are providing funds for the researchers to complete their projects. Examples like US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) funds climate change research grants to improve knowledge of the health and environment effects of climate change, and provide sustainable solutions for communities to effectively manage and reduce the impacts of a changing climate. National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) supports a variety of human health and climate change related research, both internally and through grant programs.
