German energy efficiency and renewable energies industries exploring opportunities in KSA


A Delegation of four German companies from the energy efficiency and renewable energies sectors performed a total of 48 B2B meetings with high-level representatives from Saudi companies. The matchmakings were carefully planned ahead and accompanied by GESALO. RENAC, the renewable academy from Germany, co-organized the successful delegation that took place from March 12 to 15 in Riyadh.

On March 13, four German enterprises offering high-tech products and competitive services including highly efficient PV solutions, Zero Net Energy buildings, windows, building exteriors, smart metering, lighting and project management expertise took part in a German-Saudi Conference revolving around one of the most promising markets in the MENA region.

German-Saudi Energy Efficiency conference linking businesses to science

Over 70 specialists, researchers and representatives from the related Saudi business community gained valuable inputs on efficient building designs, the latest available technology and cost-saving solutions. For the German guests, valuable information on the targets provided by Saudi Vision 2030 was displayed and explained. The delegates pointed out, in which way their products and services could help to further boost Saudi efforts towards maintaining a sustainable housing and office environment.

At the end of the conference, the German delegates met local scientists and businesspersons looking for an exchange of ideas and expertise.

The business side of this delegation was further promoted on March 14 and 15, when the delegates spent hours in the car to travel from one KSA company´s headquarter to an architect´s office or a showroom in Riyadh. This time was well spent, as the delegates not only got a personal contact to a potentially interesting business partner, but also a good feeling about their counterpart´s corporate culture and hospitality.
