Dear Industry Fellows,

It is our pleasure to inform you that the Smart Grid Center – Extension in Qatar (SGC-Q) is hosting a two-day workshop, the First Workshop on Smart Grid and Renewable Energy (SGRE2015), 22-23 March 2015 at the Marriott Marquis City Center Hotel Doha. The event is organized by Texas A&M  University at Qatar, and co-organized by Qatar University, Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation (KAHRAMAA), and Qatar Environment and Energy Research Institute (QEERI). So far the major sponsors of the SGRE2015 in addition to the organizers are Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF) and the British Council. The event’s technical sponsor is the Industrial Electronics Society of the IEEE.

The workshop will provide ample opportunity for industry personnel to discuss immediate problems and challenges, products, possible markets, visions, and standards with keynote speakers. The workshop will also provide a good platform to advertise company missions and visions, attracting the attention of Qatari students and guests from around the globe. SGRE2015 is an opportunity for members of the industry to participate in the intellectual event and benefit from the organized tutorials, talks and discussions.

Our intention is to establish a tradition of high quality and stature for the workshop, and for this we solicit your support.

We kindly ask you to return a completed Expression of Interest Form to us by 31 December, 2014 after reviewing the different Sponsorship Categories  through email or fax if your organization would like to be a valued sponsor of the two-day workshop and take advantage of the benefits associated with the sponsorship.

My Best Regards,
