As part of its ongoing growth, Access for Women in Energy (AccessWIE) embarked on a new activity in 2017: organizing educational and business visits to major energy producing and consuming countries in an attempt to give its members a comprehensive and exclusive overview of the latest energy developments in the host country.
The first target country was the United Arab Emirates (UAE) which is one of the world’s largest oil producers and is leading the Arab world with green energy developments – both in terms of renewable energy and nuclear power. The Emirates’ dedication to promoting the role of women in the energy sector is also remarkable.
Over four days the mission featured a carefully selected and balanced variety of meetings with leading government institutions. It was a fascinating and highly rewarding visit.
