Shams Dubai

Welcome to this page about DEWA’s first smart initiative to connect solar energy to buildings, a part of the Distributed Renewable Resources Generation programme.

This leading initiative supports the vision of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to make Dubai the smartest city in the world. It also supports diversifying the energy mix by promoting the use of clean and renewable energy sources to build a sustainable future for the Emirate. Launching the initiative implements council resolution number 46 of 2014, issued by HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council, to regulate the connection of solar energy to Dubai’s power grid.

The initiative encourages household and building owners to install PV panels to generate electricity, and connect them to DEWA’s grid. The electricity is used on site and the surplus is exported to DEWA’s network.

This webpage provides details and guidelines for different categories, including customers, consultants, contractors, and equipment manufacturers. You can find more information, supporting documents, and resources in the Q&A section, and under publications and resources.
