Key projects contributing to this recognition include the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, the largest single-site solar park in the world, with a planned production capacity of over 5,000MW by 2030. DEWA’s vast portfolio of innovative projects, such as the Green Hydrogen Project, the EV Green Charger initiative, and the Smart Grid, reflect its commitment to utilising advanced technologies to improve energy and water efficiency and drive the energy transition in the UAE.
