Residents of Dubai will have the opportunity to discover how renewable energy can transform their carbon footprint and energy bills with Dubai Carbon’s solar simulation clinic, available to visit at this year’s Water, Energy Technology and Environment Exhibition (WETEX), until Wednesday 23rd October 2019.

Free to access for all residents and businesses in Dubai, the simulator will be run by Shams Dubai accredit experts, Dubai Electricity and Water Authority’s (DEWA) first smart initiative project to promote the use of solar energy.

The first time a solar clinic has been introduced to Dubai, it will give people the opportunity to evaluate and understand the benefits, economics, and hurdles of switching to powering their homes and business through a clean, renewable energy source. It will also provide people with bespoke technical and economic information that they can take away and implement, as well as helping them to understand more about solar PV systems.

Attendees to the clinic will be able to discover more about the investment needed to install solar technology systems on to their property and how they can expect to see a return on investment within four years, leading to drastically reduced energy bills, and off setting their carbon footprint with the use of solar energy.

CEO of Dubai Carbon, Ivano Iannelli commented: “Although the third most important energy source globally, solar power is still only producing around 2.8% of the worldwide electricity demand. The cost and ease of installing solar panels to your own home has significantly decreased, and that is what this solar simulation clinic will help residents of Dubai understand. We have successfully retro-fitted more than 2,000 villas with solar technology in the past 12 months and with sunshine in abundance in this city, it is the ideal source of renewable energy to adopt and favour to use.”

Supporting the Shams Dubai project and vision of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to make Dubai the smartest city in the world, Dubai Carbon’s simulator will explain the differences between various solar technologies that are currently available in the market, such as the three main types of solar panels, polycrystalline, monocrystalline and thin-film technology, as well as helping people to understand the different types of equipment and providers that are available. Experts at the clinic will also teach attendees about the installation of solar and how simple it is to transition to this favourable energy source.
