MENA solar solutions provider ALEC Energy today announced that it has successfully delivered a new energy solution for the Visitor Center of the Noor Energy 1 — the CSP installation (Concentrated Solar Power) located in Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park in Dubai, UAE.

The unique energy system is an off-grid micro-grid with Azelio’s long-duration energy storage system. Leveraging an innovative energy storage solution from Azelio, combined with 300 kW of solar PV, the system delivers power to the facility, reducing the need for conventional power generation during night-time and overcast conditions.

Commenting on this, Basar Kayali, General Manager of ALEC Energy said, “The project sets global benchmarks in clean energy production.”

“The solution we have implemented here has the potential to revolutionize how clean power can be supplied to factories, agricultural facilities, and hotels or resorts in remote locations in the UAE and beyond,” Kayali added.

The NOOR Energy 1 Visitor Center, part of Phase 4 of the Solar Park, is nestled between millions of square meters of solar panels. ALEC Energy began implementing the microgrid in June 2021 and completed the entire project in just 15 months.

The off-grid micro-grid with energy storage is significantly more cost-efficient than the traditional alternatives of connecting to the national grid or relying on conventionally powered generator sets.
