For the first time in history, solar and wind power are both cheaper than fossil fuels, representing a “tipping point” which could make the fight against climate change into a commercially viable investment opportunity.
The MENA region has been steadily embarking on a sustainable energy path, with solar energy looking likely to hold the key to the region’s green future. Dubai, in particular, has been a leading voice with the impressive Dubai Integrated Energy Strategy, which aims to generate 7% of the Emirate’s electricity from renewable energy sources, increasing to 25% by 2030 and 75% by 2050.
Whilst landmark initiatives such as Shams Dubai, launched in 2015 to help put solar panels on every rooftop – residential and commercial & industrial (C&I) – across the emirate by 2030, key technical and financial challenges still need to be addressed to ensure that solar is a viable option for energy consumers.
The Solar Rooftop Forum aims to accelerate the adoption of solar power across Dubai’s residential, commercial and industrial sectors by addressing the key regional challenges currently restricting the uptake in the market, as well as delving into new business models driving the distributed generation sector on international markets.
