Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) says it is thinking about developing floating renewable energy plants in the Persian Gulf. On June 9 it launched a search for consultants who can advise it on the idea.
According to Forbes, the utility company’s plans fit in with the wider ambitions of Dubai’s government to develop its renewable energy resources. The city-state – which, unlike neighboring Abu Dhabi, has relatively little oil or gas – is following a plan known as the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 which aims to ensure that 75% of its total power output comes from clean energy sources by 2050.
Now, DEWA has asked consultants to bid for a contract to advise it on developing and constructing solar photovoltaic (PV) plants out at sea. The contract will cover a wide range of areas, including feasibility studies and an environmental impact assessment report. What isn’t yet known is how much offshore solar capacity Dubai is planning to develop or exactly where it will build it.
