In a strategic collaboration, the UAE and France are coming together to develop a significant solar power project in Abu Dhabi, aimed at offsetting a substantial 450 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions annually. This eco-friendly initiative is set to make a substantial impact.

Yas Bay Waterfront Solar Project

This ambitious project, a 524-kilowatt solar photovoltaic scheme, is slated to take shape at Yas Bay Waterfront. 

Master developer Miral is partnering with Emerge, a joint venture formed between the UAE’s renowned Masdar and France’s EDF, to realize this green energy endeavor.

920 Solar Modules for a Sustainable Future

The heart of the initiative lies in the installation of 920 solar modules at Yas Bay’s leisure, dining, and entertainment hub. 

This solar array will not only contribute to the development of the leisure complex but also aligns with the UAE’s commitment to achieving net-zero emissions.

Emerge: Pioneering Sustainability

Emerge, as the responsible entity for the project, will take charge of the project’s financing, design, procurement, construction, and the operation and maintenance of the solar modules for an impressive span of 30 years. 

This partnership exemplifies a shared commitment to sustainable development and environmental responsibility.

The Abu Dhabi solar power mega project is a testament to the UAE’s determination to transition towards clean energy and reduce its carbon footprint, with the support and expertise of France’s EDF through the Emerge joint venture.
