“The Hatta power generation project aligns with DEWA’s efforts to contribute effectively in achieving the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050, launched by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum to make Dubai a global hub for clean energy and green economy, and increase the production of clean energy to 75% by 2050,” stated Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA.
Al Tayer added: “This is most relevant in the field of wind power, which has witnessed new developments in recent years, becoming a key source in renewable and clean energy worldwide.”
The deadline to apply for the wind project is 23 July 2019.
Al Tayer stressed that DEWA is keen to transform Dubai into a global hub for clean energy and green economy, and to have the lowest carbon footprint in the world, affirming that achieving these ambitious strategic objectives requires a production capacity of more than 42,000MW of clean and renewable energy by 2050.
“To achieve our vision of becoming a globally leading, sustainable, innovative corporation, we are working to establish sustainability as a road map to ensure a brighter and happier future in Dubai by launching world-class initiatives and leading projects in green development,” said Al Tayer.
He further explained that the benefits of the wind power generation project extend to include several other advantages since the electricity generated from wind power is clean and does not produce any pollution or gases.
Additionally, electricity generated is produced locally, does not require fuel and will create jobs for the residents of Hatta.
