A brief description of the on-site renewable electricity generating facilities/devices:

Introducing new LED Solar parking lights in some of our campuses with a total of 22,469 kWh of clean renewable energy has been saved per year. The smart solar lights are chosen with the latest technology in the field of solar lighting in which the PV panels are integrated within the light post itself and the lithium battery and smart controller are integrated into the light head that can provide up to 15000 lumens and 24 hours of battery backup in a completely automated operation. The Solar LED lights fixed have a better output with longer battery backup than regular all-in-one solar lights. The plan is to install a similar system in any future parking project giving further clean energy, performance, and sustainability benefits.

A Solar Water Heating System with a backup of a 30 KW induction heater has been installed at Dubai Women’s campus in 2018 resulting in major power savings while replacing the existing 300 kW conventional type electric Calorifiers. The system is composed of Roof-mounted solar panels, storage tanks, a 2 X 15 KW backup induction heater, sensors, controllers, a circulation system, etc.
