Transmission & Distribution

Transmission & Distribution Sector Sponsor

As the call for renewable energy to be scaled up intensifies, so that the world can meet the goals set out in the Paris Agreement, a great many people don’t really think about what that growth means for the transmission and distribution sector.

Energy has to be transported over long distances and integrated into existing transmission networks. Conventional power grids have to now integrate and take into consideration the excess power generated locally (like solar panels in houses) to ensure that the grid can safely absorb the distributed energy resources. So while power is being transmitted from the power plants to a substation and then distributed from the substation to our homes and businesses; without a stable, reliable, and in today’s world, an intelligent transmission and distribution system, the grid is more likely to disconnect and fail due to the excess of power generation.

To meet the rising demands of electricity, the world’s transmission and distribution lines will need to increase by more than a third to an estimated 94 million kilometers by 2035, with an estimated cost of more than $310 billion per year, which still shows strong signals of the enormous opportunities in hand within global T&D sector.

To support the recovery of the post-pandemic energy landscape and help you stake your claim in the billion dollar market, Middle East Energy’s longest running and most successful sector – the Transmission & Distribution - returns in its 48th edition with representation from the global cable manufacturers and the entire value chain of T&D products including machinery, electric lines, transformers, and line management systems.
