  • Abu Dhabi’s EWEC aims to boost solar power generation capacity by 600%
Emirates Water and Electricity Company is targeting 7.3 GW, a 606% rise, in its solar power generation capacity by 2030 as the UAE pursues its target of achieving net zero by 2050. This requires an additional 3 gigawatts of solar power capacity by 2029 on top of the 1.5 gigawatts procured from the Al Ajban Solar PV Project once it becomes operational in 2026. The Emirates plans to invest $160 billion in clean and renewable energy sources over the next three decades.
