SAN DIEGO, Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Following a recently announced partnership between Envision Solar International, Inc. (EVSI), the leading solar shaded parking array designer and developer, and Aconfort, Member of Al Habtoor Trading Enterprises L.L.C., the companies will announce their first major entrance into the Middle East and North African (MENA) market at the 2013 World Future Energy Summit (WFES), in Abu Dhabi this coming January. The world-renowned conference attracts world leaders, diplomats, international policy makers, industry leaders, investors, experts, academia, intellectuals and journalists alike to further explore and discuss the future of renewable energy during Abu Dhabi's 2013 Sustainability Week.
"This is an invaluable opportunity for the introduction of Envision's Solar Tree® structures at a global scale and especially in the MENA region. Our architecturally accretive Solar Tree® structures will be extremely appealing to this customer base," stated Desmond Wheatley, Chief Executive Officer, Envision Solar. "There is a huge opportunity for solar energy production and high architecture in the region. In addition to solar energy production, our products offer an attractive enhancement to our customer's property as well as a simple solution to turning parking lots, which are generally ugly, under-utilized real estate into beautiful, revenue producing assets for property owners. This market is worth hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue and our partnership with Aconfort makes us uniquely positioned to take advantage of it."
Envision Solar and Aconfort will showcase the Solar Tree® array, Solar Tree® Socket™, and EV-ARC™ at the summit, which will attract an anticipated 30,000 participants from 150 countries for what will be the largest sustainability gathering in the history of the Middle East, according to the WFES website.
"Aconfort is extremely excited to participate at the 2013 World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi where the top sustainability and energy CEOs, managers and promoters from around the world will be present," stated Aquilino Ornia, Chief Executive Officer, Aconfort. "The conference is the ultimate setting for introducing these unique solar products to a market with the resources and ample ability for solar energy production on a large-scale level. Our experience in the region has taught us that clients prefer innovative well-engineered, architectural solutions that redefine cutting-edge. That's why we have selected to work exclusively with Envision Solar to bring their solar solutions to the Middle East because they have the best technology in solar parking structures with a state of the art sun-tracking system that increases solar energy production by up to 25%; in-metering, battery storage, and electric vehicle charging options; easy and quick install, and a 30-year structural warranty."
In addition, the partnership between Aconfort and Envision Solar helped to generate a recent accord between Aconfort's local UAE partner, Al Habtoor Trading Enterprises, and Adenium Energy Capital to collaborate on the development of solar projects and will be a great opportunity to include Solar Tree® structures in UAE solar projects.
