Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) welcomed a distinguished delegation from Sungrow, a leading global inverter and energy storage system solution supplier, for a high-level meeting. The delegation, headed by Cao Renxian, Chairman of Sungrow, included key executives Thomson Meng and Lynn Xia. The meeting served as a platform to exchange valuable insights on the latest market trends and the increasing significance of renewable energy solutions in the region.
During the productive discussion, HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA, and Cao Renxian explored potential collaborations and partnerships between the two entities. The goal is to further advance the adoption of clean energy technologies, not only in the UAE but also globally.
HE Al Tayer emphasized DEWA’s pioneering initiatives to diversify clean energy sources. These include cutting-edge technologies such as solar photovoltaic systems, Concentrated Solar Power (CSP), green hydrogen production using solar power, and pumped-storage hydroelectric power technology in Hatta.
Of particular significance is the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, which DEWA is developing. This solar park, based on the Independent Power Producer (IPP) model, is the largest single-site solar park worldwide. It plays a pivotal role in supporting the ambitious Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 and the Dubai Net Zero Emissions Strategy 2050, aiming to achieve 100% production capacity from clean energy sources by 2050. With investments totalling AED 50 billion (USD 13.6 billion), the solar park will have a remarkable total production capacity of 5,000MW by 2030, garnering substantial interest from international developers and bolstering investor confidence in Dubai’s major green energy projects.
Cao Renxian showcased Sungrow’s extensive expertise and track record in delivering innovative inverter and energy storage system solutions. The company’s successful implementation of numerous projects in the UAE and worldwide has contributed significantly to the global transition towards sustainable energy sources.
The meeting marks a crucial step in the pursuit of a greener and more sustainable future for the UAE and beyond, as DEWA and Sungrow strengthen their commitment to advancing clean energy adoption and combating climate change on a global scale.
