This milestone marks the completion of the Dh15.78 billion (USD 4.3 billion) fourth phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, affirming Dubai's commitment to clean energy.
Covering an expansive area of 44 sqm, the fourth phase boasts a remarkable capacity of 950 MW. The project is anticipated to provide clean energy to approximately 320,000 households, contributing to an annual reduction of carbon emissions by an estimated 1.6 million tonnes.
A key component of the UAE's ambitious goal for net-zero emissions by 2050, the project aligns with the objectives of the ongoing Cop28 climate conference in Dubai. Sheikh Mohammed emphasized the significance of the solar park in achieving sustainability goals and highlighted its role in the global effort to combat climate change.
The fourth phase introduces groundbreaking features, including the world's tallest solar tower standing at over 263 metres, and a record-setting thermal energy storage capacity of 5,907 MWh.
Employing a combination of three hybrid technologies – 600 MW from a parabolic basin complex, 100 MW from the tower, and 250 MW from photovoltaic (PV) solar panels – the project stands as a testament to technological innovation in the renewable energy sector.
The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park is a pivotal element of Dubai's Clean Energy Strategy 2050 and Net-Zero Carbon Emissions Strategy 2050. The aim is to achieve 100 percent energy production from clean sources by the middle of the century.
Spearheaded by the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), the solar park is set to reach a total capacity of 5,000MW and reduce carbon emissions by 6.5 million tonnes annually upon its completion in 2030.
Notably, the fourth phase has already commissioned 717 MW, incorporating over 790,000 PV solar panels and integrating 70,000 mirrors that track the sun's movement.
Noor Energy 1, a consortium led by DEWA and Saudi Arabia's Acwa Power, played a key role in designing, building, and operating the fourth phase, further solidifying Dubai's status in the forefront of the clean energy revolution.
