Dubai Investments with TotalEnergies will install photovoltaic rooftop systems on the Lumiglass Industries facilities and Emirates Glass, UAE. This will promote the use of clean energy in the kingdom. The power generated by the PV system will cover 19% of the energy needs of Emirates Glass facilities.
The installation of the PV rooftop systems will help in reducing carbon emissions by 1200 tonnes per year which is equivalent to planting 30,000 trees. The system will be constructed with 3000 PV panels of 1.20 MWp solar rooftop system and will produce 1900 MWh annually.
“The Emirates Glass facility has continued to install LED lightings at the factory and office premises and have successfully achieved 100% light replacement at office areas and 70% at the factory. The rooftop solar panel installation at both Emirates Glass and Lumiglass facilities is an extension of the sustainable initiatives and is aimed at reducing the reliance on grid energy as well energy costs. These solar panels are expected to generate around 2,800 megawatt-hours (MWh) of green energy per year from these two locations,” said Rizwanulla Khan, Executive President, Emirates Glass LLC, and Lumiglass Industries.
Hamady Sy, Managing Director TotalEnergies Renewables Distributed Generation Middle East, and Africa, said, “TotalEnergies in the Middle East is actively contributing to the development of solar energy in the United Arab Emirates partially through creating long-term impactful partnerships like the one we have with Dubai Investments. These projects for Emirates Glass and Lumiglass Industries represent the dedication that Dubai Investments has to make sustainable actions and we are proud to partner with these companies to support them with this initiative.”
TotalEnergies is currently working on a 0.55 MWp solar rooftop system for Lumiglass Industries with 1400 PV panels which will produce around 800 MWh per year. All these projects are a part of the commitment of Dubai Investments in adopting modern technology with sustainable growth.
