Dewa first in region to receive International Renewable Energy Certificates
DUBAI: Dubai Electricity and Water Authority’s 13MW first phase of the Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park has received the International Renewable Energy Certificates (I-REC) issued in 2017, making it the first organisation in the Arabian Gulf to adopt the I-REC system.
The move supports Dewa’s commitment to the environment and its adherence to the vision of the wise leadership to increase the share of clean energy in the energy mix.
It also underlines Dewa’s efforts to encourage the use of clean energy and promote environmental sustainability and green economy.
The I-RECs, which were issued by the Dubai Carbon Centre of Excellence (Dubai Carbon), are equivalent to 25,000 megawatt hours of annual net electricity supplied to the grid from the 13MW power plant.
