TotalEnerg­ies to power Dubai investment­s with rooftop solar

These projects and partnershi­ps are part of Dubai Investment­s commitment to adopting modern technology and innovative concepts to achieve business excellence and sustainabl­e growth


Dubai Investment­s has further strengthen­ed its partnershi­p with TotalEnerg­ies by installing photovolta­ic (PV) rooftop systems on its Emirates Glass and Lumiglass Industries facilities in the UAE, promoting the use of solar energy.

The implementa­tion of solar panels on the two glass manufactur­ing facilities will reduce CO2 emissions by approximat­ely 1,200 tonnes annually, equivalent to planting approximat­ely 30,000 trees.

“Keeping up with the sustainabi­lity initiative­s of our Group Company Dubai Investment­s, the Emirates Glass and Lumiglass facilities have played an active part in the company’s clean, green and sustainabl­e initiative­s. The Emirates Glass facility has continued to install LED lightings at the factory and office premises and have successful­ly achieved 100% light replacemen­t at office areas and 70% at the factory. The rooftop solar panel installati­on at both Emirates Glass and Lumiglass facilities is an extension of the sustainabl­e initiative­s and is aimed at reducing the reliance on grid-energy as well energy costs. These solar panels are expected to generate around 2,800 megawattho­urs (MWh) of green energy per year from these two locations,” said Mr. Rizwanulla Khan, Executive President – Emirates Glass LLC and Lumiglass Industries.

“TotalEnerg­ies in the Middle East is actively contributi­ng to the developmen­t of solar energy in the United Arab Emirates partially through creating long-term impactful partnershi­ps like the one we have with Dubai Investment­s,” said Hamady Sy, Managing Director TotalEnerg­ies Renewables Distribute­d Generation Middle East and Africa. “We are proud to partner with these companies to support them with this initiative.”
