Etihad ESCO Submits Tender for Largest Rooftop Solar PV Project in the Region

The entity will provide energy efficiency solutions to over 600 villas built under the Hatta Comprehensive Development Plan

Etihad ESCO, the leading energy management services provider established by DEWA, has submitted a tender for the largest rooftop solar PV project in the region. Etihad ESCO will design and install the most comprehensive energy efficiency solutions and rooftop solar PV panels for a total of 640 villas in Hatta.

The housing projects are developed under the Hatta Comprehensive Development Plan, which was launched by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.  According to Etihad ESCO, the project will be completed by end of 2018, and is expected to yield highest energy savings. The rooftop solar PVs will be connected to DEWA’s main grid through the Shams Dubai programme, which will save cost for residents living in these villas, once the project is completed.

“We are pleased to support the leadership’s vision to transform Dubai into one of the most sustainable cities in the world.  For Hatta, it will be the largest rooftop solar PV project in the region, and will be implemented by Etihad Solar. This will be one of the first projects undertaken by Etihad Solar. Under this landmark tender, we will be installing rooftop solar PVs at villas in Hatta, and provide maintenance services for two years thereafter. Besides these, we will also look into providing solutions for reducing water consumption,” said Ali Al Jassim, CEO of Etihad ESCO.

Etihad Solar is a dedicated division under Etihad ESCO established to distribute innovative solar power generation solutions across the energy sector in the UAE. The Hatta project will also create technical, administrative and operational jobs, and is expected to provide opportunities for ESCOs in the region.

Ali Al Jassim added, “We always look forward to adopting the best electricity and water technologies and promoting partnerships with the private sector to achieve the goals under Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050, which aims to reach clean energy supply targets of 25% by 2030, and 75% by 2050. All the ambitious strategies by the leadership aim to improve the economy and attract investment into projects that provide opportunities for ESCOs in the region,”

The AED 1.3 billion (USD 353.9 million) Hatta Comprehensive Development Plan aims to boost the area’s social and economic attractiveness as a world-class environmental tourist destination. It covers three key areas including the economic and service sector, tourism and sports, and culture and education.
