Solar power is growing in the United Arab Emirates, but with the world’s biggest panel capacity.
The country has installed the biggest array of solar panels in the region, with a total of 12 gigawatts of solar capacity.
According to the UAE Energy Ministry, the panel capacity of 12GW is more than enough to provide electricity to an average household in the country.
The UAE is one of the fastest growing solar power markets in the Middle East and North Africa, according to Solar Energy Institute, a Dubai-based consultancy.
The solar panels are installed in the capital Abu Dhabi, the largest city in the Gulf region, where the country is already the world leader in solar energy.
The Emiratis installed 7.2GW of solar in 2017, according the UAE’s National Renewable Energy Company (NREL).
The solar panel installations in Abu Dhabi are also the biggest in the Arab world.
NREL says that UAE solar power generation is now more than 20% of the total capacity of all of the country’s energy generation capacity.
As of 2018, the UAE had the second largest solar capacity of any country in the World, after France.
Abu Dhabi has also set a goal of having 500MW of solar by 2030.
Solar energy has been booming in the UK for some time, with the country seeing record demand for energy in the wake of the global financial crisis.
The government has been pushing for solar projects in the past and recently announced the country would start installing solar panels on its rooftops.
Last month, the government announced plans to install more than 100,000 solar panels across the UK.
As part of the solar plans, the Ministry of Energy is also set to expand the number of solar parks across the country, according Energy Minister Mohammed Ibrahim.
The Government is planning to provide solar power to around 200 million homes and businesses, and the total amount of solar power generated will be more than $10 billion, according Ibrahim.
