Exide to Present Latest Battery Technology at Middle East Energy Dubai 2020


Exide Technologies a global provider of stored electrical energy solutions, will present a selection of its products at the upcoming Middle East Energy conference taking place on 3–5 March 2020 in the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC), United Arab Emirates. The company’s new telecom lithium battery will be officially launched in the region for the first time, while high-performance lead-acid batteries will also be on display. Exide will be positioned at Stand H4.G20.

At the event Exide will demonstrate how its technology is used in a broad variety of applications, including telecoms, uninterruptible power supplies, back-up power for renewables, power and grid quality, and providing off-grid power to remote communities. The company has a wide range of batteries available, allowing it to recommend the best technology for the application in question.

Exide will launch its high-performance GNB Sonnenschein Lithium in the Middle East for the first time at the event. The battery offers fast recharging and advanced safety features, and its maintenance-free design is ideally suited to BTS (Base Transceiver Station) applications. Its compact, lightweight structure makes transport and installation easier, and its impressive charge acceptance provides greater operating freedom. The efficiency and exceptional service life reduce total cost of ownership for operators.

Also on display will be GNB Classic Solar, Sonnenschein Solar, Sonnenschein PowerCycle, Sprinter Top Terminal and Front Terminal, Marathon Front Terminal, and Absolyte System, which is used mainly in the oil & gas and utilities & telecoms sectors. The next-generation Marathon Front Terminal batteries now have an increased design life of 15 years up from 12, and next-generation Sprinter Front Terminal batteries now have an increased design life of 12 years up from 10.

“We’re looking forward to the Middle East Energy event in Dubai,” said Adnan Eid, Exide’s Regional Sales Director MEA / India. “The MEE conference is always at the center of research and future developments in the energy industry – just where Exide likes to be. We’re excited to see what this year’s conference will bring, and to present our industry-leading products to audiences from around the world. We encourage all attendees to visit us at Stand H4.G20.”

Middle East Energy (MEE) Dubai evolved from the world-leading Middle East Electricity event, which annually attracts governments, consultants, manufacturers, managers, contractors, developers and experts from such diverse fields as renewables, telecommunications, energy management, power storage and smart technology. Exide is now entering its eighth year participating in the event.

This year will be the 45th edition of the MEE conference, a testament to its popularity and success in the energy industry not just in the Middle East – where the energy and utilities sector has been rapidly expanding – but also globally. Over the three days it will include case-study-led sessions and panel discussions presented by some 150 speakers.

How One Photographer has Committed to the Fight Against Middle School Bullying, One Photo


Casey Scalf of Storybook Studios in Chesapeake, VA is helping build the self-esteem of young girls who have been bullied, through the power of photography.

CHESAPEAKE, Va. 10/22/19— “I created this program a couple of years ago when I started hearing parents tell me about how hard middle school is on their girls. The bullying in middle school is horrible and is detrimental to their self-confidence.” said Scalf.

“As preteens, kids develop their self-esteem during these very important years. We are hearing way too often that kids this age are getting bullied and it breaks my heart. We need to show them that they are worthy…worthy of self-confidence, worthy of loving who they are, worthy of being here to live their life.” said Scalf.

“Since our high school senior portraits have changed the self-confidence of so many seniors, I felt compelled to create the Fearless Spirit Model Crew. This program is designed to boost their self-esteem and self-worth through their own Fearless Spirit portrait session and six monthly model crew sessions.” said Scalf.

By giving Casey a few months of their time, she shows them the negative image they have of themselves is wrong.

“Throughout the process, I take photos of them and prove to them, ‘See this is how beautiful you are. There’s no denying that. It’s truly you.” said Scalf.

“I just cannot say enough about how Caroline’s time with you has transformed her. You have captured her beauty, confidence, sass, innocence and that precious stage of becoming – between little girl and young woman. Through your artistry, she has seen herself in a way that she never has before. When she saw her portraits, she saw a confident, beautiful girl and then believed that about herself. No matter how much we have tried to help her see that, she didn’t until she saw herself through the lens of your camera and it has had such a positive impact on her self-esteem. As a result, you have positively affected every aspect of her life. Her confidence has led to believing in herself, taking chances, setting goals, and reaching them. I am in awe.” Brooke Henderson (Mother of a Fearless Spirit Model)
