“The strategy aims to provide 75% of the emirate’s energy through clean energy sources by 2050”  – said His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

Launch of Dubai Clean Energy Strategy

The Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 aims to make Dubai a global center of clean energy and green economy.

“Dubai Clean Energy Strategy aims to supply 7% of Dubai’s energy from clean energy sources by 2020. It’ll increase this target to 25% by 2030 and 75% by 2050.”

The strategy consists of below mentioned pillars –

1. Infrastructure

This pillar includes initiatives such as Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park; which is the largest generator of alternative energy in the world from a single location with a capability to provide 5,000 MW by 2030 which is 25% of the total energy production in the emirate of Dubai as estimated.

 The infrastructure pillar also includes the establishment of a new free zone under the name ‘Dubai Green Zone’ dedicated to attracting research and development centers and emerging companies in the field of clean energy.

2. Legislation:

This focuses on the establishment of a legislative structure supporting clean energy policies in two phases. The first part would be implemented through Shams Dubai initiative that aims to encourage building owners to place solar panels on the roofs and link them to the main network of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA). The second part includes coordination with Dubai Municipality to issue a set of decisions on the integration of consumption rationalization technology and energy production and the requirement to install solar panels on the roofs of all building in Dubai by 2030.

3. Dubai Green Fund:

The third pillar is related to funding solutions for investment in analysis and development on clean energy and its application. This pillar includes the establishment of ‘Dubai Green Fund’ worth of AED 100 billion which will contribute through its financial resources simple loans for investors in the clean energy sector in the emirate at reduced interest rates.

4. Building capacities and skills:

The fourth pillar aims to make human resources capabilities through global coaching programs in the field of clean energy in cooperation with international organizations and institutes like International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) as well as international companies and R&D centers.

5. Environment friendly energy mix:

The fifth pillar is targeted on making an environment friendly energy mix comprising solar energy 25%, nuclear power 7%, clean coal 7%, and gas 61% by 2030. The mix will gradually increase the utilization of clean energy sources to 75% by 2050, making Dubai the city with the least ‘carbon footprint’ city in the world.

To make these strategies successful there have been many steps taken into consideration. The most important of all being the “Smart Initiatives” , the initiative consists of the below mentioned, which have been initiated by DEWA (Dubai Electricity and Water Authority) –

Smart Initiative Strategy

LogicLadder Technologies is one such organization which is working on the Smart Energy Applications with EnergyLogicIQ™, EnergyLogicIQ-Generator™ and EnviroLogicIQ™ , which are the IOT based applications providing real-time monitoring data.
