Saudi power generation to grow 49pc.

Saudi Arabia is expected to increase its electrical power capacity by 49 per cent through 2019 to meet growing residential and business energy demands, said the organisers of an upcoming power generation exhibition in Riyadh.

The 14th Saudi International Electrical Engineering, Power Generation and Distribution Exhibition (Elenex) will take place from May 29 to June 1 at the Riyadh Convention and Exhibitions Centre.

Saudi Elenex 2011 will run simultaneously with Saudi Luminex -- the 11th international lighting equipment show; Saudi Aircon -- the 12th international air conditioning, ventilation, heating and refrigeration show; and Saudi Water Technology -- the 9th international exhibition for water technology, desalination plants and accessories.

Forming the ELAW (electricity, lighting, air conditioning and water) group of shows, these events provide a comprehensive platform for exploring potential power, lighting, water and heating, ventilation and air conditioning deals and gaining a strategic position in the KSA's utilities sector.

The ELAW shows will enable attendees to follow local business trends, discuss vital industry issues, build and/or expand their market share, launch new products, and align their offerings with Saudi Arabia's long-term infrastructure development plans.

Power consumption is projected to reach 220 terawatt-hours per year by the end of the forecast period with a per capita consumption increase of nine per cent, said fair organiser Riyadh Exhibitions Company. -- TradeArabia News Service
