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.”
