Dubai To Develop Smart Solar Strategy With The Help Of ABB Technology

ABB technology will support the development of new smart solar power systems in Dubai, to increase year-round solar energy production as part of the smart Dubai initiative.

Dubai Electric and Water Authority (DEWA) stated that for the development of the solar system it is using the ABB AbilityTM electrical distribution control system.

To monitor production at ABB’s Al Quoz photovoltaic solar system, DEWA will deploy the ABB AbilityTM electrical distribution control system. The 312kW installation is one of the largest privately owned solar rooftops in the region. The cloud-based platform focuses on integrating the power production data with other information, such as weather forecasts and actual rooftop temperatures.

The ABB AbilityTM electrical distribution control system is a cloud-based platform for electrical systems that concentrates on identifying optimization opportunities and enabling remote implementation of effective power management strategies.

Smart Dubai is the vision of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai.

Commenting about the smart Dubai initiative, Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, managing director and CEO of DEWA, said, “The vision also sets out a clear path for government organizations to initiate the transition towards the digital era by enhancing and developing their services to meet people’s demands and achieve their happiness.”

“We seek to promote Dubai as a sustainable, smart, and integrated city with high-tech infrastructure to support economic and social development as well as promote sustainable use of resources by ensuring best practices in consumption, efficiency and governance,” he added.

Dubai aims to generate 25 per cent of its energy from renewable sources by 2030 and the development of a viable solar power market is import to achieve this, he further explained. DEWA focus on introducing digital innovations that will help to manage the city’s energy consumption and production with smart grids and smart meters.
