Research & Development

Research & Development is focusing, among other topics, on the reliability and durability of photovoltaic solar panels for prolonged periods in severe conditions. DEWA’s R&D team is working on a series of international initiatives to develop cutting-edge research and is participating in other regional programmes as well. A key project has been launched for international collaborations on soiling and dust mitigation on PV equipment. The tests that are currently being performed will set a baseline for development of specifications, tests and standards for PV equipment in the region.

Research and Development Centre (R&D)

The Centre of Excellence for Innovative Research in Energy & Water aims to shape a sustainable world-class utility.

  • Conducting studies to meet industrial and social requirements
  • Leading regional efforts for scientific research on renewable energy
  • Serving as a link between researchers and developers
  • Developing formal channels linking universities to local and global research centres
  • Developing output strategies for innovative productive ideas

Innovation Centre

This interactive centre is equipped with the latest technologies in renewable and clean energy.

  • Further developing national skills in the field of energy
  • Promoting the competitive edge of businesses in Dubai, developing renewable energy technologies, and supporting the region’s energy industry
  • Spreading awareness on climate change and sustainable energy
  • Creating interactive presentations and organising educational tours for visitors

Photovoltaic Solar Teesting Facility

DEWA has developed a world-class Solar Powered PV Testing Facility for the purpose of studying & evaluating the performance, long term stability and reliability of PV technologies (both commercial and under development) under real local weather conditions.

This facility concept is for innovative technology demonstrations with key companies in renewable energies and for international collaboration on soiling and dust mitigation on PV equipment.

The tests that are currently being performed will set a baseline for development of specifications, tests and standards for PV equipment in the region. Current test programme involves 32 module commercial types from more than 20 manufacturers. Operation and maintenance strategies are also in the core of our research topics.

CSP Testing Facility

The CSP Testing Facility will study CSP technologies in a desert climate, using 10 units with a total power capacity of 110kW.
