Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with ABB, a global leader in power and automation technologies, to develop a pilot solar power project at ABB’s premises with a grid-connected rooftop 277kW photovoltaic (PV) system.

The MoU supports the Smart Dubai initiative launched by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to transform Dubai into the smartest city in the world, and DEWA’s initiatives to connect electricity produced from solar power to its grid.

The MOU was signed by HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA, and Carlos Poñe, Chief Executive Officer for ABB in the United Arab Emirates.

According to the MoU, the pilot project will connect to DEWA’s grid through a low-voltage distribution board at ABB, and will be used as a learning tool for the deployment of solar PV rooftop installations in Dubai.

“DEWA is committed to enhancing partnerships and collaborating with the public and private sectors and local and international organisations to further improve the services it provides to the public, as well as its operational processes according to the highest levels of availability, reliability and efficiency. We are pleased to collaborate with ABB in this project, which will help in developing renewable-energy resources, and support DEWA’s vision to become a sustainable world-class utility. It also demonstrates how government and private organisations can work together to enhance Dubai’s sustainable development, and establish its position as a global hub for trade, finance, tourism, and green economy,” said Al Tayer.

“ABB is delighted to sign this strategic agreement to install a solar rooftop at its facility in Al Quoz in Dubai. We look forward to working together with DEWA to help to develop the solar industry in the Emirate and for our installation to also be a showcase in the region, proving the benefits of renewable technologies and how they can be integrated seamlessly into the existing electrical grid. We also share DEWA’s vision that Dubai will be a world-class smart city and we firmly believe for this to happen it also needs to be energy-efficient. We are sure that DEWA’s excellent initiatives, coupled with innovations and technologies from companies such as ABB, will make this ambition a reality,” said Poñe.
