Dubai electricity and water authority
The award is an international platform that focuses on supporting global endeavours to find innovative and sustainable solutions for issues like environmental pollution, global warming, CO2 emissions and scarcity of natural resources
The aim is to increase the visibility of distributed energy resources (DER) and maximise their value by providing grid services such as peak shaving, frequency regulation or energy balancing
The commercial sector generated the biggest electricity savings between 2008 and 2018
The tender comes shortly after Dubai's regional neighbour Abu Dhabi launched a 2GW solar tender via the Emirates Water and Electricity Company (EWEC)
A UAE delegation headed by Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Vice-Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy and MD & CEO of DEWA is currently on a visit in the Republic of Poland
Phase 4 of the project marks the world's largest investment in a concentrated solar power (CSP) plant, and Dewa's Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer recently toured the project site.
