Dubai Carbon has announced signing a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Innogy International Middle East to develop and implement rooftop photovoltaic (PV) opportunities under the Shams Dubai initiative.

The collaboration will reportedly include the design of a standardised and low-cost solar kit for residential applications, as well as large-scale industrial rooftops.

Remarking on the agreement, Ivano Iannelli, CEO of Dubai Carbon, said: "Our core expertise is the provision of regionally relevant knowledge, [and] our role is to facilitate the transition to a low carbon, green economy through our data-centric approach. 

"We look forward to using our expertise as an independent renewable energy consultant to implement the continuously growing pipeline of solar PV projects across Dubai and the UAE, in partnership with Innogy International Middle East.”

Commenting on the MoU, Pierre Samaties, CEO of Innogy International Middle East, said: "Our mission is to support the government of Dubai in the transformation towards a green economy and smart city.

"Rooftop PV is a key element in this transformation," Samaties added. 

Dubai Carbon is one of the three companies awarded contracts earlier this month by Etihad Energy Services Company (Etihad ESCO) to develop 640 villas in the city's Hatta area. 

The Hatta development is said to be the region's largest residential rooftop PV project, and Dubai Carbon's contract covers 220 villas.
