KHALEEJTIMES - Solar panels on all Dubai roofs by 2030
Dh100 billion fund set up to generate clean energy.
Billions of dirhams will be spent by Dubai on generating clean energy, the government said on Saturday, aiming to have solar panels installed on the roofs of all buildings by 2030.
The Dubai government will encourage building owners to place solar panels on their roofs and link them to a network of the local power utility, His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, said while launching the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050, which aims to make Dubai a global centre of clean energy and green economy.
The authorities plan to establish a Dh100 billion ($27 billion) fund to provide low-cost loans for investors in Dubai's clean energy sector.
