On behalf of the Zayed Future Energy Prize, I would like to formally congratulate Bronx Design & Construction Academy on being one of our 2013 finalists. As you know, the $4 million prize was created to honour the legacy of the Founding Father and first President of the United Arab Emirates, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, and aims to inspire the current and next generation of global energy innovators to create solutions for the future.

We would be delighted if your esteemed high school could have a presence at the Zayed Future Energy Prize Awards Ceremony and Gala Dinner, taking place on the evening of the 15th January 2013 in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

Every year, the Prize takes place alongside the World Future Energy Summit (WFES). We are proud to announce that this year the Prize will be prominently featured at its own exhibition stand which we aim to use as a platform to host presentations, panel discussions and more. WFES, hosted by Masdar, has established itself as the world’s foremost annual gathering in the renewable energy and sustainable technologies industry. Keynote speakers at the Summit have included heads of state and world leaders.

In addition to the Zayed Future Energy Prize and the World Future Energy Summit, ADSW will include the 1st International Water Summit and the Abu Dhabi International Renewable Energy Conference. The Opening Ceremony of ADSW will take place on the morning of the 15th of January. We would be honoured if the three guests could also attend this event.
