Today, IBERDROLA inaugurated its innovation centre for the Middle East in Qatar Science & Technology Park (QSTP), an accelerator and incubator for the development of technological products in Qatar. The collaboration outlines a proposal to cultivate a partnership with Iberdrola QSTP LLC based on the institutions’ shared goals of research and technology development. As part of the agreement, the two parties will jointly work on the securement of reliable smart grids, enhancement of pre-existing smart grid monitoring systems for better efficiency, and the development of hybrid technologies for better performance. I had the privilege of attending this event and this gave me an opportunity to learn of the success of this project first-hand.
