Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) and Emirates Solar Industry Association (ESIA) have announced the completion of the first solar power plant to be built within an existing Middle East power station.

The new 10kW rooftop system has been installed at DEWA’s Jebel Ali power complex, with an expected energy at the inverter output of 18,000 kWh. The system is part of the pair’s collaboration to test the performance of roof-top solar in Dubai in different climatic conditions and with different cleaning methods.

“This partnership is in line with the energy diversification strategy adopted by the Supreme Council of Energy, in which solar energy is set to become part of Dubai’s energy portfolio,” said DEWA MD & CEO, H.E. Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer.

ESIA president, Vahid Fotuhi, added, “We are honoured to partner with DEWA to measure just how effectively solar power can help reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.”

The ESIA project consortium has been lead by UAE-based solar provider Enviromena, with solar panels provided by Trina Solar.
