Dubai 200MW solar project is about to be completed

According to reports, a 200MW solar project was completed in Dubai, Arabia. According to the national news agency WAM, the project is the first phase of the third phase 800MW power station in the Mohamed Ben Rashid Al Maktoum solar energy park built by the Dubai power and Water Bureau.

The second phase and the third stage, each capacity of 300MW, will be completed in 2019 and 2020 respectively.

The solar project is highly praised by the managing director and chief executive of the Dubai Hydroelectric Power Bureau, which helps to strengthen the United Arab Emirates' global leading position in the clean energy field.

He also said, "the solar project is the first solar power plant in the Middle East and North Africa, with advanced solar tracking systems that can improve the efficiency of electricity generation. In addition, the project uses unique technologies, including over 800 thousand self-cleaning solar cells, to maintain high performance levels.

The project will provide electricity for more than 60 thousand houses and reduce 270 thousand tons of carbon emissions per year.

According to the target of Dubai's clean energy strategy 2050, by 2020, 7% of Dubai's total power generation will come from clean energy, up to 25% in 2030 and 75% in 2050.

Oman announces six renewable energy power generation projects

According to Oman's official English newspaper, "Observer" news, in addition to the currently planned 50 MW wind power plant and the 500 MW photovoltaic power project, Oman announced plans to build six renewable energy projects to achieve 2650 megawatts of power generation by the end of 2024.

The new project is one of the highlights of the "seven year outlook report (2018-2024)", which has not been announced by the Oman hydroelectric purchasing company (OPWP), which is currently in the approval stage, including three photovoltaic stations and three wind power, according to a chief executive of the -Nama group, a state owned wholly owned power holding company, -Nama group. The installed capacity of the station is 500 MW. It is planned to be put into operation in 2022, 2023 and 2023 respectively. It is planned to be Ibri, Manah and Adam respectively. One of the wind power stations has a installed capacity of 150 megawatts, and is planned to be put into operation in 2023. The other two installed capacity are 200 megawatts, and are planned to be 2023 and 2023, respectively. The year is put into production, and it is intended to be siting or dukum.

The above projects, along with the dukum coal-fired power generation project and the first waste power station plan, show that the Oman hydropower plant has reduced the use of natural gas power and the target of renewable energy utilization by more than 10% by the end of 2025. This goal is to implement the government approved by the government in January. Diversification strategy aims at broadening the sources of fuel and ensuring long-term electricity demand.

Greece will start the 300MW PV project in July

In July 2nd, the Greek energy regulator (RAE) will bid for 300MW PV projects and 300MW wind energy projects. The bidding is divided into three categories: 500KW to 1MW PV projects, 1MW to 20MW PV projects and 3MW to 50MW wind energy projects. Among them, second bidding categories, 1MW ~ 20MW PV projects, the energy regulator proposed the maximum PV project to be 10MW at the beginning of this year, however, at present, the upper limit has been expanded to 20MW.

In July 2018, the first bidding category of photovoltaic projects was 70MW, and the second bidding categories would allocate 230MW PV projects, while wind energy projects would not exceed 300MW, the Greek energy regulator said. Investors need to submit their tender documents by June 5th. For photovoltaic projects below 500KW, the European Union allows its member states to decide on their own way of financing, while Greece adopts a special preferential net metering scheme.
