Dubai-based industrial conglomerate Al Shirawi Group has formed a joint venture with German firm Gildemeister Energy Solutions GmbH for utility-scale solar solutions in the UAE.

The joint venture will also focus on rooftop solar applications, storage and e-mobile technology.

Navin Valrani, CEO, engineering services and education, Al Shirawi Group, said: “In the past decade, the UAE has secured a prominent place in the international solar energy industry having developed several world-class solar projects.
