Italian consultancy company has been appointed by Dubai and Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA) to provide consultancy services for
connecting renewable energy facilities to the utility provider’s network.
The main purpose of the project is to support DEWA in launching its disseminated renewable association programme and further stabilizing Dubai’s energy supply. The system is part of the emirate’s target of generating 5% of power using renewable energy sources by 2030.
Under the agreement, CESI will provide consultancy services on various components of grid management and distributed renewable connectivity to solar energy from DEWA’s distribution grid. The firm will also create an in-house body to manage the interaction of Dubai’s grid with renewable energy schemes.
In April, the utility provider invited companies to tender expression of interest in the contract to develop the 100MW second phase of its Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum Solar Park.
It has been newly reported that the Netherlands’s KPMG has been selected financial adviser and the UK’s Norton Rose Fullbright as legal adviser for the planned solar scheme which will make use of photovoltaic technology. The project is scheduled to be completely equipped in 2017.
