Smart Energy International

The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to conduct research and development of energy technologies with the Gulf Cooperation Council Interconnection Authority (GCCIA).

GCCIA and EPRI will cooperate on artificial intelligence, blockchain and cybersecurity applications in the energy industry over the next three years.

GCCIA has a total power generation capacity of 100GW and owns an energy transmission network which connects six member states namely Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman and Bahrain.

Ahmed Al-Ebrahim, CEO of GCCIA, said: "As our region works to diversify energy supply and delivery, we can both learn from and contribute to the energy reliability and security of all systems.

"Through our collaboration with EPRI, we expect good progress both in the research itself and in integrating our efforts with other leaders in the sector."

Arshad Mansoor, senior vice president of Research and Development at EPRI, adds: "Working together we can address challenges arising from cyber threats and we can bring more resources and perspectives to bear in pursuing solutions through emerging technologies."

GCCIA has plans to expand its network to reach Europe, Africa and Asia.
