Dubai plans to source 8 per cent of its power from RE by 2020

Dubai plans to source 8 per cent or at least 1,000 MW of its over-all power requirements from renewables by 2020. The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) will invest AED 8 billion in energy projects in 2019, including the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, in line with the goal of increasing renewable energy production to 25 per cent by 2030, and 75 per cent by 2050. DEWA also plans to promote efficiency and conservation programmes, and reduce power and water network losses.
