The UAE’s Min­istry of Cli­mate Change and the En­vi­ron­ment (MOCCAE) has teamed up with the In­ter­na­tional Re­new­able En­ergy Agency (IRENA) and Khal­ifa Uni­ver­sity of Science and Tech­nol­ogy to launch a new ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence lab­o­ra­tory.

The lab will use AI tech­nol­ogy to iden­tify con­cen­trated so­lar en­ergy lo­ca­tions as well as mon­i­tor and an­a­lyse lev­els of air pol­lu­tants in the coun­try.

“The min­istry launched the ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence lab­o­ra­tory in line with the UAE strat­egy for ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence,” said Dr. Thani bin Ahmed Al Zey­oudi, min­is­ter of cli­mate change and en­vi­ron­ment.

“The lab­o­ra­tory aims to pro­tect the lo­cal en­vi­ron­ment by mon­i­tor­ing and analysing the avail­able in­for­ma­tion ac­cu­rately and us­ing it in mak­ing the right de­ci­sions, based on the lat­est global tech­nolo­gies.”

Three main sys­tems are in­cluded in the lab­o­ra­tory; real time maps of so­lar pho­to­voltaic lo­ca­tions in the UAE, an en­vi­ron­men­tal mon­i­tor­ing sys­tem and a ma­rine en­vi­ron­ment mon­i­tor­ing sys­tem. The so­lar pv maps will help de­ter­mine the best lo­ca­tions for so­lar pan­els.
