Dr Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, COP28 President and UAE Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology, will be inviting energy majors and technology leaders from Silicon Valley to a special ‘Changemakers Majlis’ on the topic of artificial intelligence (AI) and the energy transition ahead of ADIPEC 2024, which takes place in Abu Dhabi from 4-7 November 2024, it has been revealed.

In an article published by the Financial Times, Dr Al Jaber was quoted as saying that believes that AI will be “the bridge” for how the world could simultaneously “reduce emissions while also driving social and economic value everywhere”.

“My message to the tech sector is this: AI needs energy and energy needs AI… Let’s collaborate to drive down the emissions of the conventional energy you will still need, and on ways that AI can drive energy efficiency,” Dr Al Jaber told the Financial Times. The AI and energy transition-focused Changemakers' Majlis event would be based on the majlis gathering held during the COP28 negotiations.

The transformational power of technology and integration of high-impact solutions such as AI across the energy value chain to fast-track the energy transition will be in sharp focus at this year’s ADIPEC.

Taking place just days before COP29 begins in Baku, Azerbaijan, ADIPEC 2024 will offer the energy industry a crucial opportunity to demonstrate collaborative progress on climate action and finance commitments made and targets set as part of the UAE Consensus at COP28.

Hosted by ADNOC, ADIPEC builds on its 40-year legacy and will continue to address global challenges on the road to net zero, with an emphasis on the role of energy in accelerating an economy-wide transformation that delivers for people, the planet and our collective prosperity.

An inclusive platform for the entire energy ecosystem, ADIPEC will convene communities, nations, and industries, the world’s largest energy producers and consumers, as well as enablers in government, finance and technology, to find collective solutions towards affordable, secure, and sustainable energy for all.

“I know that AI is making grids much smarter by simply predicting peaks and dips and usage, it is also helping optimise the flow of electrons, to where they need to be. There are also exciting new developments happening in material sciences. AI is modelling the ideal molecular structures to absorb CO₂,” Dr Al Jaber was also quoted as saying by the FT.
