DEWA Touts Solar Powered Green Hydrogen Project (Int'l. Report)
DEWA,Siemens Energy
Date: 2021-05-21
In the UAE, the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) and Siemens Energy are reporting inauguration of the Middle East's first industrial-scale, solar-powered green hydrogen project. Using power provided by the 1,013MW Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park (MBR), the pilot plant is expected to produce around 20.5kg of hydrogen per hour.

DEWA aims to use the project to demonstrate the production of green hydrogen from solar power, as well as the storage and re-electrification of hydrogen. The plant can accommodate future applications and test platforms for the different uses of hydrogen, including potential mobility and industrial uses.

Roughly 1,850MW of solar capacity is currently under construction at the MBR mega-project, which will reach 5GW when fully operational in 2030 and be the world's largest single-site solar plant.

DEWA Touts Dubai Solar Park's Energy Storage Capacity (Int'l.)
DEWA
Date: 2020-11-30
In the UAE, the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) is reporting the 950 MW fourth phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park will have the largest energy storage capacity in the world of 15 hours.

The concentrated solar cower (CSP) park features the world's tallest solar power tower and molten salt receiver (MSR) at 262.44 meters, the lowest levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) of $7.3 cents per kWh for the 700MW CSP and $2.4 cents per kWh for the 250MW photovoltaic solar panels.

The park incorporates three hybrid technologies to produce clean energy -- 600MW from a parabolic basin complex (three units of 200MW each), 100MW from a solar power tower (based on Molten Salt technology), and 250MW from photovoltaic solar panels. The facility will supply sufficient power for 320,000 residences and help cut 1.6 million tpy of carbon emissions when fully operational in Q3, 2121.
