At the beginning of this year, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) passed their new Energy Strategy 2050. Vice President Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum announced investments of around 153 billion EUR into renewable energy projects, energy efficiency and the traffic infrastructure until 2050. According to the new strategy, the share of the renewable energy forms is planned to increase from currently 25% up to 50%. The Dubai Emirate is particularly ambitious. It aims to source around 75% of the needed energy from renewable resources until 2050. The Solardirekt Energy GmbH & Co. KG from Rheine in Germany is a leading manufacturer of sustainable assembly systems for photovoltaic plants. Thanks to its innovative solutions which are easy to handle and made of recyclable plastic, the company is enjoying increasing demand from the UAE.

D. Carnegie & Co AB, a Stockholm-based property developer, has established a more efficient and profitable way of managing such projects and now owns over 18,000 properties around the Greater Stockholm area.

That was the thinking of the Feneberg family when they decided to fund and build a modern event venue in their home town of Kempten in the picturesque Allgäu region of Bavaria. Built for a total cost of 20 million EUR and offering 4,500 m² of space, bigBOX Allgäu opened in 2003. It is operated by FH Promotions GmbH & Co. KG.
