Solar projects developer opens Dubai office
US-based SolarReserve looks to tap into growing demand for renewables
SolarReserve, a US-based developer of large-scale solar power projects, has opened an office in Dubai as its Middle East hub.
The company, which also develops solar thermal storage technology, said it is pursuing opportunities to develop both large-scale concentrated solar power and photovoltaic projects.
The company's director of development, Philip Hale, will run the company's MENA development from the Dubai office. He has more than 20 years of experience in the energy, construction and property markets and has been with SolarReserve for over five years.
SolarReserve CEO Kevin Smith said: "In recent years, solar power generation has seen increasing growth in the MENA region.
"SolarReserve is committed to furthering support of its strong partnerships in MENA through the establishment of a regional hub that begins with an on-the-ground presence in Dubai."
The firm said that it would also continue to open a series of country-specific offices to support customers and projects, where required.
