Matteo Codazzi, CEO of CESI, took part to the conference on “New frontiers: Strategies and regions reshaping the future of Energy, Utilities & Mining” that was held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates from 12 to15 November 2012 and organized by the PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC).
On the agenda there were debates on energy transformation and industries' convergence, impact of demographics on the future of smart cities, looking closer at the impact of technology on companies' economic models and focus on regions of importance to EU&M sectors.
The Middle East is home to 40% of global gas reserves, over 50% of global oil reserves, and it is one of the major global gold mining and trading centers: the heart of global energy.
