Community Outreach Program
As part of our Outreach Initiative, we have established an Education Program to help educate students and the general public about solar power in the Middle East. The program kicked off with a site visit to the recently commissioned 40kWp grid tied PV system and 10kWp off grid system at the Dubai Municipality’s Fahidi Market project, for 15 secondary school students from the Jumeira Baccalaureate School.
If your school or organisation is interested in participating in the program please contact [email protected].
Team UAE – Solar Decathlon
MESIA is delighted to support Team UAE in the upcoming Solar Decathlon Europe 2014 competition. Team UAE is aiming to build a sustainable zero net energy house that is powered completely by solar energy. More than a dozen MESIA member companies have already attended the design launch on 11 June, offering cutting-edge solutions on how to enhance the energy efficiency of the home.
Team UAE, which is comprised entirely of students from 2 universities in Dubai, has qualified from 44 countries to compete against 24 teams in France next year. The UAE is the only country participating from the Middle East. If you are interested in participating in this exciting project please contact [email protected].
