Dubai Airports and Etihad Energy Services Company a leading energy service company and a wholly owned subsidiary of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority have announced the successful installation of a solar energy system comprising 15,000 photovoltaic panels at Dubai International’s Terminal 2 – the largest at any airport in the region. With a capacity of 5MWp, the solar project will generate 7,483,500 kWh energy annually for Dubai Airports, resulting in savings worth AED 3.3 million. The project will reduce existing Terminal 2 load by approximately 29%, while also slashing annual CO2 emissions by 3,243 metric tonnes, which is equivalent to 53,617 tree seedlings grown for 10 years or 688 passenger vehicles driven for one year.

The project is part of Shams Dubai, DEWA’s first smart initiative that aims to promote the use of clean renewable energy sources. The programme encourages installation of solar panels on rooftops to generate electricity from solar power and connecting it to DEWA’s grid to transfer surplus generation. Etihad ESCO will provide maintenance services for Dubai Airports for a period of seven years from completion.
