Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) commissioned the 2MWp Solar Carport Project, at its headquarters and at the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment (MOCCAE) building. DEWA launched the project last year as part of the Shams Dubai initiative, to increase reliance on clean energy, support the Smart Dubai initiative and achieve its vision of becoming a sustainable innovative world-class utility.

This project covers a total of 885 parking spaces in the two locations, using 6,700 locally manufactured solar modules, spanning an area of 13,200 square metres with a total production capacity of 2,000 kW. This is equivalent to a reduction of about 1,500 tons of carbon emissions annually.

“The Solar Carport project in DEWA’s headquarters and at MOCCAE is part of our efforts to encourage the public to benefit from DEWA’s Shams Dubai initiative. This project 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 make Dubai the smartest and happiest city in the world. It also achieves the objectives of the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 to make Dubai a global hub for clean energy and green economy by providing 7% of its total energy from clean energy sources by 2020, 25% by 2030 and 75% by 2050,” said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA.

“Through this project, we intend to enhance the happiness of our stakeholders, promote the concept of green and sustainable buildings, and instil a sustainable culture of energy consumption. We also aim to reduce the reliance on traditional energy sources, by helping Dubai’s Governmental entities meet the target set by the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy to cut 20% of energy consumption in all government buildings by 2020. This is aligned with the UAE Vision 2021 to create a sustainable environment, and the Dubai Plan 2021 to make Dubai a smart and sustainable city with clean, healthy and sustainable environmental elements,” added Al Tayer.

Al Tayer stated that the Shams Dubai initiative, launched by DEWA in 2015 has been very successful. The initiative encourages homeowners to install photovoltaic solar systems on the rooftops of their buildings and connect them to DEWA’s network. Through Shams Dubai, a total of 1,145 buildings have been connected to DEWA’s network, with a total capacity of 49.9 MW, and additional requests of more than 323.83 MW in capacity. DEWA is also working to increase this number to reach all buildings in Dubai by 2030.
