Dubai, UAE, 6 December 2018: The Middle East is the perfect place which must harness solar energy to its fullest, said Scheherazade Himour, CEO, Sunretec. The French company, which specialises in photovoltaic power plants on building rooftops, works with Green Buildings. “The main objective is to replace standard materials like glass with photovoltaic glass,” she said. Nowadays, buildings must produce their own electricity and not depend on external sources for energy or be connected to a grid, said Himour. The Middle East region, she highlighted, is perfect for the application; however, the only roadblock, she said, is the price of the solution. “It is expensive,” Himour asserted, and even though it is ideal, finding clients who have the budget, is where the challenge lies.

The Middle East, Himour said, is a region that not only sports beautiful infrastructure but also has hot sunshine, which is essential. The solution, she said, can power both lighting and complex HVAC systems in buildings. Solar energy is the future and with the call made for Net Zero Energy Buildings and for Green Buildings in the region, there will have to be an energy-efficient alternative, said Himour.
