Drawing on UAE-China relations, Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) plans to extend its collaboration with Chinese energy companies, many of which are already involved with Dewa projects such as the world’s largest single-site solar project in the world, Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, with a planned capacity of 5,000MW by 2030.

Managing director and chief executive officer of Dewa, discussed Dubai-Chinese collaboration with newly appointed Consul-General of the People’s Republic of China in Dubai, Li Xuhang.

During a meeting held recently between Xuhang and Al Tayer, the officials discussed ways to increase the scope of Chinese energy companies in Dewa projects, particularly in the areas of clean and renewable energy.

The Chinese Consul-General is said to have expressed China’s interest in investing in Dubai’s renewable energy sector.

The UAE is China’s second-largest trade partner, and its largest trading partner in the Arab world, Wam reported.
