The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) will be implementing six sustainable development projects at Al Marmoom Conservation Reserve in Dubai.

The reserve, which will be a home to the area’s plants, animals, and birds, aims to become the UAE’s largest environmental tourist destination, attracting one million visitors annually, according to a statement from DEWA.

The authority’s projects will include providing clean energy from the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, installation and connection of solar panels on the rooftops of the reserve’s facilities as part of the Shams Dubai initiative, and installing Green Charger electric vehicle charging stations as part of the Green Charger initiative.
