Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) signs MoU with Expo 2020 Dubai and Siemens to kick off region's first solar-driven hydrogen electrolysis facility. The facility aims at testing and showcasing an integrated MW-scale plant to produce hydrogen using renewable energy from solar photovoltaic at the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, store the gas, and then deploy for either re-electrification, transportation or other industrial uses. DEWA and Expo 2020 Dubai intend to use fuel-cell vehicles powered by the green hydrogen generated at the facility.
Dubai targets to increase the share of its total power output from clean energy sources to 75 percent by 2050.
