Lockheed Martin, the US-based global technology leader, will exhibit its diverse energy portfolio at the twelfth annual World Future Energy Summit (WFES) held between 14-17 January during Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW) 2019.
Hosted by Masdar, Abu Dhabi’s future energy company, WFES is the anchor event for ADSW and a global industry platform connecting business and innovation in energy, clean technology and efficiency for a sustainable future. Lockheed Martin’s energy business subject matter experts will demonstrate the company’s cutting-edge technology and latest innovations, which are capable of supporting the sustainable and secure long-term development of economies in the Middle East, and beyond.
This year at WFES, Caleb Waugh, the Head of Business Analytics for Energy Storage Lockheed Martin, will discuss ‘Energy Storage and the Road to a Sustainable Future’ during a panel discussion. Waugh will highlight over a century of Lockheed Martin’s experience in providing efficient energy management solutions and systems integration programs for a variety of customers, including utilities, independent power producers, commercial and industrial partners and developers in both the public and private sectors. The technology giant will also feature its trademark Lithium Ion Battery, Flow Battery and Waste-to-Energy technology at the exhibition.
Commenting on the company’s participation at WFES, Dan Norton, Vice President of Strategy, Business Development and Energy at Lockheed Martin, said: “At Lockheed Martin, we consider sustainable, resilient and efficient energy management as a fundamental pillar supporting global progress and security. We are proud of our long history in promoting a range of holistic energy solutions that are rooted in our core business focus: advanced technology and innovation. Platforms such as WFES provide a great opportunity for us to showcase these products and services to a truly international audience, while allowing us to re-engage with our local and regional partners.”
Lockheed Martin is currently working on an innovative long-duration energy storage solution: a novel coordinated chemistry flow battery, where energy is stored in an aqueous solution that is a much safer and more affordable method of storing energy for longer periods. The company will be displaying a model of the flow battery along with its other products and solutions at Stand 5000 inside the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center (ADNEC).
