Abu Dhabi's Ewec aims to boost solar power generation capacity by 600%

Emirates Water and Electricity Company is targeting a 606 per cent rise in its solar power generation capacity by 2030 as the UAE pursues its target of achieving net zero by 2050.
The Abu Dhabi-based utility plans to increase its solar power capacity to 7.3 gigawatts by the end of the decade, the company said in its Statement of Future Capacity Requirements report on Wednesday.
The report forecasts the requirement for an additional three 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 recommendations, approved by the Abu Dhabi Department of Energy, call for continued investment in low-carbon intensive reverse osmosis water desalination technology.
This investment will enable more than 90 per cent of the total water demand to be fulfilled using reverse osmosis by 2030.
