Dewa highlights latest solar energy tech at Wetex

DUBAI, April 23, 2015

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) has dedicated a hall at the Water, Energy, Technology, and Environment Exhibition (Wetex 2015) to local and global companies to showcase solar energy technologies.

“We are determined to continue building and developing a green economy to achieve the UAE Vision 2021, which focuses on clean energy,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO, Dewa, president and Founder of Wetex.

“We also support Dubai Plan 2021 to establish Dubai as a smart and sustainable city, whose environmental elements are clean, healthy, and sustainable. Our efforts also complement the Dubai Integrated Energy Strategy 2030, to diversify energy sources to include 71 per cent from natural gas, 15 per cent from solar energy, 7 per cent from clean coal, and 7 per cent from nuclear power.”

Through its stand in Hall 8, the Middle East Solar Industry Association (Mesia) aims to expand the use of solar power in the Middle East, strengthen the local solar industry, and facilitate business opportunities for its members.

In collaboration with a number of major companies, Mesia has arranged 11 workshops and lectures during the three days of Wetex, to discuss solar energy and its importance, led by experts.

Another prominent participant in Hall 8 is Alsa Solar Systems, which has put on display a model of the solar panels. The company also showcases models of street lighting powered by solar energy. Alsa Solar Systems is currently implementing a giant solar project in Abu Dhabi, in addition to other major projects.

Enviromena Power Systems is also located in the same Hall, putting on display projects like installing solar panels on surfaces in Qatar, in addition to a project in the Al Mamoura in Abu Dhabi, and other projects that offer practical experience of solar energy, especially in the UAE and the Gulf states.

A prominent stand for Kyocera Solar spotlights solar energy production tools. The company is showcasing designs for solar projects using panels in parking lots, in addition to panels on rooftops at homes and offices. Kyocera Solar also has a variety of projects, including a project in Spain.

Yingli Solar is putting on display large solar panels in Hall 8, as well as several projects built with a vision for clean renewable energy for all.

Researchers and specialised players can review several production tools and solutions for solar energy, through real models, live displays and photos. For example, AlumilSolar highlights solar and photovoltaic energy production tools on its stand.

Dewa invites the public to Wetex seminars

Dewa is also organising scientific and technical seminars and workshops at Wetex.

Day one seminars attracted over 650 people. Topics discussed included the use of water and energy pipelines and meeting the demand for energy and the challenges of choosing cables, techniques and business-cycles for green environment, ways of integrating traditional and solar energy, and the future of solar energy. Dewa also organised a brainstorming session about ways to improve Wetex.

“Dewa organises these seminars and workshops each year at Wetex to engage sponsors and exhibitors in discussions at these sessions, which we see as the ideal platform to explore the latest technologies and developments in energy, water, environment, oil and gas globally, regionally and locally,” said Al Tayer.

“These sessions continue the success of the seminars that are organised each year alongside the Wetex 2015 and they support our vision to become a sustainable innovative world-class utility.

"These seminars have become an integral part of Wetex every year. A significant share of the exhibition visitors show interest in the seminars as they enrich their knowledge and keep them abreast of advancements in sectors like energy, water and environmental sustainability. This year’s programme has 30 seminars," added Al Tayer.

“The ultimate goal of inviting renowned international speakers to take part in these seminars is to support the exhibition’s theme, which is ‘At the forefront of sustainability’ by exchanging knowledge and expertise in the best technologies and practices to rationalise the use of energy and water resources and inform participants about the solutions that achieve sustainability,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
