Wasl, one of Dubai’s premier real estate development and management companies, has proudly concluded one of the largest on-grid solar projects in the emirate, emphasizing Dubai’s dedication to sustainability and its role as the host of COP28.
As the UAE marks 2023 as the Year of Sustainability, Wasl installed over 22,000 photovoltaic panels across 44 buildings, boosting the grid’s capacity by more than 11 GWh annually. This initiative aligns with the UAE Net Zero by 2050 initiative and was executed in collaboration with Etihad Energy Services Company (Etihad ESCO).
The project’s achievement, exceeding anticipated outcomes, highlights Wasl’s dedication to clean energy solutions and aligns with the broader sustainability objectives of the UAE.
The solar energy generated will annually offset 4,500 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide, equivalent to removing 2,200 cars from the road or powering 900 Dubai homes for a year. Wasl, participating in the 25th WETEX and DSS, seeks to expedite clean energy initiatives in alignment with the UAE’s Net Zero goals and the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050.
Salem AlNuaimi, Acting Director of Asset Management Services and Solutions at Wasl, emphasized the company’s commitment to innovation, sustainability, and improving residents’ lives across Wasl communities.
The company’s showcase will highlight Sustainable Real Estate Development, Food Tech Valley, Solar PV, and Energy Retrofitting, aligning with Wasl’s overarching goal of diminishing its carbon footprint and improving community well-being.
