Solar Power Revolution: How the UAE Is Harnessing Sunshine to Fuel Its Economy

The UAE is a major player in the global solar energy market, with the Energy Institute Statistical Review of World Energy ranking it second globally in per capita solar energy consumption. It took the lead in the MENA region, announcing a target of achieving net zero emissions by 2050. The country is expected to continue its upward trajectory in solar energy production and consumption as it develops new solar projects, including the world’s largest solar plant in the Al Dhafra region of Abu Dhabi and the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park.

Over 90 percent of the UAE’s land area is suitable for solar energy generation, supporting the country’s ability to harness solar power potential. Ultimately, these investments in solar power will allow the government to drive sustainable economic growth.
