The other major initiative is The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, which once completed, would be the largest Solar Plant in the world with a capacity of 5,000 MW. This project has put Dubai on the global solar map making it one of the most promising solar markets in the region. It will further act as a trendsetter and example for other Middle Eastern and North African countries to follow.

To fulfill its obligations in making Dubai and the UAE a sustainable economy and to maintain Dubai’s position as the most advanced economy in the MENA region, DEWA, in the next 5 years, has firm plans to roll out projects to the tune of £21 billion.

Dubai also intends to shift its dependency to clean energy sources to 75% by 2030 coupled with reducing its carbon emissions by 30% by the same period.
