Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park

The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, which DEWA is implementing, is the largest single-site solar park in the world, using the Independent Power Producer (IPP) model. It will have a production capacity of 5,000MW by 2030 with a total investment of AED 50 billion. Upon its completion, the Solar Park will reduce more than 6.5 million tonnes of carbon emissions annually. The current capacity at the Solar Park is 1,627MW using solar photovoltaic panels. DEWA is implementing more projects with a total capacity of 1,233MW using solar photovoltaic and Concentrated Solar Power (CSP). Clean energy share in Dubai’s energy mix has reached 11.5% and is expected to reach 14% by the end of 2022.
The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park supports the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 and the Dubai Net Zero Emissions Strategy 2050 to provide 100% of its energy production capacity from clean energy sources by 2050


Phases of energy production

  • The 13MW 1st phase uses photovoltaic solar panels and became operational in October 2013.
  • The 200MW 2nd Phase uses photovoltaic solar panels and became operational in March 2017.
  • The 800MW 3rd phase uses photovoltaic solar panels and became fully operational in November 2020.
  • The 950MW 4th phase combines 700MW from Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) and 250MW using photovoltaic solar panels. It will be implemented in stages.
  • The 900MW 5th phase uses photovoltaic solar panels. The 300MW first stage was inaugurated in August 2021
