Recently, the world's biggest solar photovoltaic plant of 1,177MW at Sweihan in Abu Dhabi Emirate was commissioned on the Independent Power Producer (IPP) basis. Dubai's main project under the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 is the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park. This will be the largest single-site solar park in the world, which will have a capacity of 5,000 megawatts by 2030, generated from a range of photovoltaic and concentrated solar power technologies with a total investment of more than USD13 billion and reducing carbon dioxide by 6.5 million metric tonnes per year. The solar park features the value chain of solar power, from research and development, innovation to power generation, storage and continuous improvement, ensuring leading results in clean energy.

As of today, it now can generate 713 megawatts and is due to exceed its target of 1,000 megawatts in 2020, with new phases currently under construction and design that will reach 2,863 megawatts by 2023 with investments of over USD6 billion. DEWA achieved world-leading results by applying a successful Public Private Partnership practice known as the Independent Power Producer model. This has been highly effective in five main directions: The first is establishing a comprehensive legal and regulatory framework to attract and protect foreign investments. The second is that it has caused reputable international solar power companies to deliver state of the art technologies without the need for our own direct investment. Focusing on the IPP model has enabled us to divert our investments towards other areas, such as the Research and Development Centre at the solar park. The third is building Emirati capacity and skills in coordination with international organisations and Universities in clean energy. The fourth, increasing efficiency: We started our journey with early generation thin film photovoltaic panels having an efficiency of 11.8% and now we reached 19% efficiency with mono-PERC solar cell technology. Moreover, using self-cleaning and an advanced solar tracking system, we have increased energy yield of the plant by around 24%. The fifth has been one that has had global effect for the solar power industry, in that the various phases for the solar park have resulted in four world records for solar tariffs in the bids. This is being accelerated by international investments overseas by Masdar in renewable energy projects in 27 countries around the world; totalling USD12 billion with a gross capacity of nearly 4,000 megawatts of renewable energy projects in operation or under development, and reducing nearly 5.4 million metric tonnes of carbon dioxide per year. These figures have deconstructed the myth that solar power is expensive and incapable of supporting the rise of clean energy around the world.

As of today, there is more than 100 megawatts of rooftop solar photovoltaic capacity installed across Dubai. This initiative, Shams Dubai, has the legislation and regulations in place to enable solar power to spread across the city and provide additional clean capacity. Yet clean energy continues to evolve as well as grow, which is why Research and Development is so important. The R&D Centre at the solar park focuses on solar power, energy efficiency, smart grid integration and solar powered water desalination. This includes testing a range a photovoltaic and concentrated solar power technologies, as well as solutions that increase their efficiency and reliability. One example is soiling of solar photovoltaic panels in a desert environment. We are testing soil-resistant coating, and advanced robotics to clean photovoltaic panels and remove the effects of dust soiling," External link

Al Tayer said : "Currently, Abu Dhabi and Dubai are making considerable advances in the generation and development of clean energy sources, mainly solar power, in the UAE. Recently, the world's biggest solar photovoltaic plant of 1,177MW at Sweihan in Abu Dhabi Emirate was commissioned on the Independent Power Producer (IPP) basis. Dubai's main project under the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 is the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park. This will be the largest single-site solar park in the world, which will have a capacity of 5,000 megawatts by 2030, generated from a range of photovoltaic and concentrated solar power technologies with a total investment of more than USD13 billion and reducing carbon dioxide by 6.5 million metric tonnes per year. The solar park features the value chain of solar power, from research and development, innovation to power generation, storage and continuous improvement, ensuring leading results in clean energy. The solar park has one of the most advanced and pioneering clean energy technologies in the world; including photovoltaic arrays, parabolic troughs, the world's tallest solar tower with heliostats and using molten salt for storage in order to generate clean energy; both day and night," External link

electricenergyonline Tuesday, September 3, 2019 9:45:00 PM EAT

Al Tayer added ( about Public Private Partnership ) : "The solar park began operations in 2013 with a 13-megawatt photovoltaic plant. As of today, it now can generate 713 megawatts and is due to exceed its target of 1,000 megawatts in 2020, with new phases currently under construction and design that will reach 2,863 megawatts by 2023 with investments of over USD6 billion. DEWA achieved world-leading results by applying a successful Public Private Partnership practice known as the Independent Power Producer model. This has been highly effective in five main directions: The first is establishing a comprehensive legal and regulatory framework to attract and protect foreign investments. The second is that it has caused reputable international solar power companies to deliver state of the art technologies without the need for our own direct investment. Focusing on the IPP model has enabled us to divert our investments towards other areas, such as the Research and Development Centre at the solar park. The third is building Emirati capacity and skills in coordination with international organisations and Universities in clean energy. The fourth, increasing efficiency: We started our journey with early generation thin film photovoltaic panels having an efficiency of 11.8% and now we reached 19% efficiency with mono-PERC solar cell technology. Moreover, using self-cleaning and an advanced solar tracking system, we have increased energy yield of the plant by around 24%. The fifth has been one that has had global effect for the solar power industry, in that the various phases for the solar park have resulted in four world records for solar tariffs in the bids. This is being accelerated by international investments overseas by Masdar in renewable energy projects in 27 countries around the world; totalling USD12 billion with a gross capacity of nearly 4,000 megawatts of renewable energy projects in operation or under development, and reducing nearly 5.4 million metric tonnes of carbon dioxide per year. These figures have deconstructed the myth that solar power is expensive and incapable of supporting the rise of clean energy around the world. Abu Dhabi has installed photovoltaic arrays in government buildings across the Emirate as well as many other solar initiatives," External link

We support the 10X initiative launched by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, to propel Dubai towards the future, making it 10 years ahead of other global cities through government innovation. In DEWA, we have decided to reshape the concept of utilities and create a new digital future by launching Digital DEWA, the digital arm of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority. To develop artificial intelligence and digital services to support solar power as well as energy storage technologies to maximise its efficiency and output. This holistic approach to clean energy also shows the need to look at it in all its forms and not only solar. One of these might surprise you - hydroelectricity. DEWA is building the first Pumped Storage hydroelectricity power plant in the GCC region, with two reservoirs in Hatta to generate 250 megawatts, with solar powered pumps pushing water to the higher reservoir to serve as a natural power storage. The lifetime of the plant is around 80 years and full power output can be delivered to the grid within 90 seconds. Solar power is also used for water desalination. We are now looking to clean energy powered sea water Reverse Osmosis (RO) to expand our production capacity to 305 million gallons of desalinated water per day by 2030 and this will increase our total production capacity to 750 million gallons per day.
