Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) is implementing the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, which enhances the sustainable development of Dubai and supports the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 to make Dubai a global hub for clean energy and green economy. The strategy aims to provide 75% of Dubai’s total power output from clean energy by 2050.
The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park is the largest single-site solar park in the world based on the Independent Power Producer (IPP) model. It has a planned production capacity of 5,000 MW by 2030, with investments totaling AED 50 billion. When completed, it will save over 6.5 million tonnes of carbon emissions annually.
The solar park also houses an Innovation Centre, a Research and Development (R&D) Centre and a 3d-printed lab.
