innogy International Middle East and Dubai Carbon Centre of Excellence have signed an MoU to develop and implement potential rooftop PV opportunities in Dubai, under the Shams Dubai initiative. The collaboration will include the design of a standardised low-cost solar kit for residential applications, as well as for large-scale industrial rooftops, Dubai Carbon said through a Press communiqué.
Ivano Iannelli, CEO of Dubai Carbon, said: “Our role is to facilitate the transition to a low carbon, green economy through our data-centric approach. We look forward to using our expertise as an Independent Renewable Energy Consultant to implement the continuously growing pipeline of solar PV projects across the Emirate of Dubai and the UAE, in partnership with innogy International Middle East”.
Dubai Carbon was recently awarded the development of rooftop PV units for 220 villas in Hatta, out of the contracted 640 villas, the largest residential rooftop PV project in the region, the Press communiqué said.
Pierre Samaties, CEO of innogy International Middle East, added: “Our mission is to support the Government of Dubai in the transformation towards a green economy and smart city. Rooftop PV is a key element for this transformation.”
The two companies will initially follow a list of twelve specific opportunities.
