HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA, honored the project owners in a ceremony at the Dubai Solar Show. DEWA launched Shams Dubai to encourage building owners to install photovoltaic panels to generate electricity and connect the systems to DEWA’s grid. Details of the initiative, and approved equipment, from a list of enrolled consultants and contractors with DEWA to install solar power systems are available on www.dewa.gov.ae/Shamsdubai.
