Utilities companies in the Middle East are evolving from being service providers to service managers according to Mohamed Ayoub, Regional Growth Leader for the US-based GE.

Speaking at the Middle East Energy Online 2021 conference, Mr Ayoub said that with so many renewable sources of energy now feeding into a power distribution network the major utilities companies needed to have a system in place that could maximise value and efficiency in place. 

“As [utilities-scale] renewable projects become more affordable and therefore more common across the region, [electricity] grids will have to be managed very effectively using digitalisation,” Ayoub said.

The executive added that the technical challenges in future distribution networks would only be possible via a fully digitised network.

Middle East Energy Online 2021 is being held virtually over a four week period from 17 May to 9 June.
