Renewable Energy Solutions
Renewable Energy encompasses a wide range of solutions such as Solar, Wind, Biomass, Tidal, Wave, GeoThermal. With abundant sun in UAE, we are a well-suited country to adopt renewable energy systems over conventional (fossil based) energy sources.
Dubai has set a 1 percent solar generation target by 2020 and 5 percent by 2030. Keeping this goal in mind, DEWA has launched the SHAMS initiative, a part of their Distributed Renewable Resources Generation programme. The initiative encourages household and building owners to install PV panels to generate electricity, and connect them to DEWA’s grid. The electricity is used on site and the surplus is exported to DEWA’s network and can be offset in the subsequent bill(s).
PActive follows a simple strategy to make solar energy feasible to its clients:
- We Audit the facility to analyse the energy guzzlers
- Reduce energy consumption
- Calculate feasibility of solar
- Propose a system with full or part capacity
A lot of research goes into understanding the customer requirement and proposing a system that is appropriate for the facility. The building should benefit from the addition by savings in electricity bills. To do this, behind the scenes, we work on shading the building, enhancing day lighting, passive strategies for indoor comfort conditions and so on so that our design is Solar Ready.
