Ecoppia, the world leader in robotic solutions for photovoltaic solar has entered into a first-of-its-kind multilateral collaboration with the UAE-Israel-India Trilateral by signing a landmark deal in the UAE with the support of the International Federation of Indo-Israel Chambers of Commerce (IFIICC).

The multilateral deal also includes a collaboration with a leading global renewable energy partner of IFIICC. The long-term contract made by Ecoppia will help it to deploy its innovative fully autonomous, water-free robots for attaining optimal productivity in the dusty and arid region by saving precious water resources. The energy-independent certified robots have already cleaned over 3 billion panels in various sites.

“We are delighted to become the first-of-its-kind success story for the Israel-UAE-India trilateral partnership by bringing our innovative world-leading technology in solar cleaning robotic solution, from Israel, manufactured in India for a landmark project in UAE through a multilateral collaboration with a leading global renewable energy partner of IFIICC. This new treasured global business relationship for Ecoppia was established with the support of the IFIICC in record time.”

Merzi Sodawaterwala, the founder and chairperson of  IFIICC, stated that “Ecoppia is a world leader in autonomous robotic solar cleaning. I am confident that Ecoppia’s robotic solar cleaning solutions will be greatly appreciated and adopted across the Middle East and internationally where billions of liters of a scarce resource like water are currently wasted in manual cleaning.”

The announcement comes as the Abraham Accords peace agreement signed between Israel and UAE has paved the way for business partnerships across the region. India being in good relations with UAE and Israel is the preferred partner to leverage the global potential of the UAE, Israel and India Trilateral.

At a recently held exclusive event of the IFIICC in Dubai organized by Mr. Sodawaterwala, Diplomats of UAE, Israel and India representing the Ministry of Foreign Affairs had affirmed the innovation and international business potential of the UAE, Israel and India Trilateral to be $110 billion by 2030.

“Developments and global partnerships in renewable energy are making it possible to overcome the challenges of climate change. This project successfully facilitated by the IFIICC, is an excellent example of how Israeli innovative technological solutions, such as those of Ecoppia, are crucial to achieving carbon neutrality, together with the economic benefits of a multilateral collaboration between countries and partners from UAE, Israel, India and Europe,” said Jonathan Miller, Special Envoy for Energy, Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
