Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA) has received a high-level delegation from Sungrow, the global leading inverter and energy storage system solution supplier, to discuss mutual energy collaboration.

The delegation was led by Mr. Cao Renxian, Chairman of Sungrow and included Mr. Thomson Meng, Vice President- PV & Storage BG at Sungrow, and Mr. Lynn Xia, Senior Director, Overseas Strategical Key Account Department.

During the meeting, HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA and Mr. Renxian exchanged valuable insights on the current market trends and the growing importance of renewable energy solutions in the region. They also discussed the potential collaborations and partnerships between Sungrow and DEWA to further enhance the adoption of clean energy technologies in the UAE and beyond.

Mr. Al Tayer highlighted DEWA’s pioneering projects and initiatives to diversify clean energy sources. These include different clean and renewable energy sources and technologies such as solar photovoltaic systems, Concentrated Solar Power (CSP), green hydrogen production using solar power as a new clean energy source of the future, and using the pumped-storage hydroelectric power technology in Hatta.

The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, which DEWA is implementing, is the largest single-site solar park in the world based on the Independent Power Producer (IPP) model. It supports the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 and the Dubai Net Zero Emissions Strategy 2050 to achieve 100 percent production capacity from clean energy sources by 2050. 

The solar park, with investments totaling $13.6 billion, will have a total production capacity of 5,000 MW by 2030. The projects at the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park are of great interest to international developers and reaffirm investor confidence in the major projects supported by the Government of Dubai.

Mr. Renxian highlighted Sungrow’s extensive experience and expertise in providing innovative inverter and energy storage system solutions. The company has successfully implemented numerous projects in the UAE and worldwide, contributing significantly to the global transition toward sustainable energy sources.
