Join Us at the Second ZETA Roundtable - Shaping the Future of Clean Energy in the GCC

We are thrilled to extend an invitation to the upcoming second ZETA Roundtable, set to take place on November 27 at the prestigious W Dubai - The Palm. This event coincides with the 13th Dii Desert Energy Leadership Summit, creating a perfect backdrop for our discussions. Our theme for this roundtable is “GCC Clean Energy Hub: a framework for a net zero/low carbon energy trading in the Gulf,” which promises to be a groundbreaking exploration of sustainable energy solutions.

Event Details:

  • Date: November 27
  • Location: W Dubai - The Palm
  • Theme: GCC Clean Energy Hub: A Framework for Net Zero/Low Carbon Energy Trading

The Second ZETA Breakfast Roundtable aims to amplify the importance of market tools in reducing carbon emissions and boosting renewable energy uptake. We will delve into the concept of a “clean energy Exchange,” a revolutionary marketplace for trading “green molecules.” This roundtable will feature a keynote address by Bert den Ouden, a renowned pioneer in power and gas exchanges. He will share insights from the upcoming HyExchange green hydrogen trade center in The Netherlands, highlighting its unique approach using “Guarantees of green H2-Origin.” This is analogous to green power certificates (like RECs) in Europe and offers a glimpse into what could be necessary for establishing climate-neutral marketplaces in the GCC and the broader MENA region.

We are honored to host eminent speakers from NEOM/Enowa, HyXchange, Dii Desert Energy / Desertec3.0, and ZETA Global (Zero Emissions Traders Alliance). These experts will shed light on the ZETA initiatives and discuss the transformative potential of a clean energy hub approach.

This roundtable is more than just a meeting; it's an opportunity to actively shape the future of clean energy markets and sustainability in the GCC region. We believe that the collaboration of market-driven industry leaders is key to making strides towards our collective goal of net-zero emissions and a renewable energy future.

Please note that due to the exclusive nature of this event, registration is essential. To secure your place and for further inquiries, contact us at We eagerly await your participation in this vital discussion and the opportunity to collaborate towards a sustainable energy future.
