E = mc2. Though invented by a physicist for core sciences, this milestone mathematical expression of the Nobel Laureate Albert Einstein has become increasingly important for sustainable development in the 21st-century world.

The Sun is the ultimate source of all energy on this planet stored in mass forms - hydrocarbons, petroleum, nuclear energy, wind and water etc. that are the foundations of contemporary urban civilizations. The over-exploitation of energy stored in mass forms like petroleum and hydrocarbons etc. have resulted into dangers of pollution igniting the visionary minds for 'Affordable and Clean Energy' that in 2015 was adopted as Global Goal 7 by the United Nations amongst it's 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for the year 2030.

The World Energy Congress 2019 being organized in Abu Dhabi on 9-12 September 2019 envisions to provide a platform for dialogues among ministers, CEOs, policy makers and industry practitioners from various professional backgrounds and across nationalities on critical developments in energy & extractives.
