"Dewa" Participates in the World Future Energy Summit

ABU DHABI, 18 APRIL / WAM / Delegations participating in the World Future Energy Summit 2024, hosted by Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company “Masdar”, visited the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center and concluded today the “Dubai Electricity and Water Authority Platform”, including a delegation headed by His Excellency Yoo Jae Song, Ambassador of the Republic of Korea. The state praised the authority’s projects, especially in the renewable and clean energy sector.

The Korean delegation was briefed on a number of the Authority’s projects, including the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Energy Park. It learned about the green hydrogen project implemented by the Authority, which is the first of its kind in the Middle East and North Africa region to produce hydrogen using solar energy.

The Korean delegation listened to an explanation about the “Al Sheraa Building”, the new main building of the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, which will be the tallest, largest and smartest zero-energy government building in the world.

During its participation in the summit, the Authority highlighted the latest solar photovoltaic and concentrated solar energy technologies that it uses in the fourth phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Energy Complex, whose production capacity reaches 950 megawatts. The project includes the highest concentrated solar energy tower in the world with a height It is more than 263 meters long and has the largest thermal energy storage capacity of 5,907 megawatt hours, according to the Guinness Book of World Records.

The authority also reviewed the sixth phase of the complex, which it is implementing in cooperation with the Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company “Masdar” according to the independent energy producer model, using the latest technologies of bifacial photovoltaic solar panels, which allow the use of sunlight reflected on the front and back sides, with a single solar tracking system. the hub.

The Authority’s platform displayed a model of a seawater desalination plant project using reverse osmosis technology, which it is implementing in the Hassyan complex with a production capacity of 180 million gallons per day.

The authority’s platform also highlighted the “green charger” for electric vehicles, as it completed the installation of about 390 charging stations throughout Dubai to support green mobility and encourage individuals and institutions to acquire environmentally friendly electric cars.
