The solar PV plant will supply renewable energy to Phase 1 of the green ammonia project, which will be one of the first privately owned company green ammonia projects in the UAE, according to BRE’s parent company, Brooge Energy.

With this new partnership, Siemens increases its presence in the country where it partnered with Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) to power up the first operational green hydrogen plant in the Middle East back in 2021.

Ahead of hosting COP28 in Abu Dhabi later this year, the UAE recently signed a clean energy framework with the US to catalyse US$100 billion in global investment in the sector, while UAE-owned renewables company Masdar signed a memorandum of understanding with four Dutch companies to establish a green hydrogen supply line between the UAE and Europe.

The next edition of PV Tech Power will explore the use of solar PV to power green hydrogen in the MENA region and the countries that could become hubs for the technology.

FREE WEBINAR -This special webinar will take a deep dive into the latest PV ModuleTech Bankability Ratings pyramid, capturing the relative bankability status of the top 70-80 PV module suppliers globally. In addition to revealing the latest ranking of global PV module suppliers, PV Tech’s Head of Research, Finlay Colville, will show the depth of analysis and commentary included within the report for module suppliers. A key output from the webinar will be to learn which PV module suppliers have moved up the rankings pyramid in recent years and why this growth has been achieved. Conversely, some of the companies that have fallen down the rankings will be discussed, in particular those suffering from market-share losses and financial problems.
