The location of the United Arab Emirates and Dubai within the sunbelt highlights solar energy’s major role as a renewable source of energy. In Dubai, available global irradiation usable by photovoltaic (PV) technology averages 2,150 kWh/m2/y (Kilowatt hours per square meters per year) and the direct part of the irradiation (DNI – Direct Normal Irradiance) which is used by Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) is about 1,850 kWh/m2/y. These figures mean solar energy is an optimal energy source for Dubai.
Solar power in the United Arab Emirates has the potential to provide most of the country’s electricity demand. While being a major oil producing country, the UAE has taken steps to introduce solar power on a large scale.
