Dubai Electricity and Water Authority Commits AED 60 Billion for Energy Water Projects

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) announced that it will invest AED 60 billion in Dubai's energy and water sectors over the next five years to meet increasing demand. In its bid to diversify the emirate's energy mix Dewa has increased the targets for renewable energy to 7% of Dubai's total power output by 2020 and 15% by 2030.

Dewa has allocated over AED 2.6 billion to support electricity water and renewable energy infrastructure projects.

REC Viridis Eyeing DEWA

REC Solar ASA and Viridis Asset Management, LLC have jointly submitted an expression of interest for Dubai Electricity And Water Authority (DEWA). They intend to submit a competitive bid for a part of the remaining 800 megawatts (MW) at the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park. Luc Grare, Senior Vice President at REC, said, “Dubai benefits from high irradiation levels, making solar quite competitive. However, the best profitability analysis is useless if the solar panels are not performing as they should for at least 25 years due to the region's harsh climate conditions. With REC's high-quality products, long-term experience and German engineering expertise, REC has the know-how to implement efficient, long-running and reliable solar installations that can withstand the heat and sandstorms that exist in Dubai. We are pleased to contribute our demonstrated expertise on a competitive level backed by sustainable financial stability.”
