Under the Patronage of the Ministry of Energy & Industry, United Arab Emirates, the 4th edition of Global Solar Leaders’ Summit (GSLS) will return to Dubai World Trade Centre as part of The Big 5 Solar on 27 November 2018.

Under the topical theme ‘Solar Solutions for Construction’, the 2018 summit will bring together government delegates, industry decision makers and thought leaders to discuss the latest industry developments and debate the future of solar in the region. Belén Gallego, CEO & Co-Founder at ATA Insights (Spain) reflects on the new theme:

“It has never been more important for the solar and construction industries to come together, as distributed solar markets are raising through the ranks to be an important part of the climate change solution. This event is a great opportunity for these two industries to meet, discuss and do business.”
