DUBAi / Emirates Business
Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC) has commenced a solar photovoltaic (PV) panel pilot project which aims to reduce carbon emissions and achieve over 50 percent savings in energy consumption at individual service stations. The project is being implemented at ENOCâ€™s Dubai Media City filling station on Sheikh Zayed Road, as part of the rebuild scheme for the station.
It was initiated by ENOC Retail, the retail business of ENOC, in an effort to use solar energy to power the daytime electrical loads as part of ENOCâ€™s wider innovation and sustainability strategy. PV panels will be installed on the stationâ€™s roof and are expected to generate about 100 to120KW of power during the daytime, which will be around 50 to 60 percent of the stationâ€™s total consumption.
His Excellency Saif Humaid Al Falasi, ENOC Group CEO, said: â€œWith the increasing demand for energy, it is crucial that we invest in innovative technologies that promote sustainability and maintain high operational standards while helping us deliver on our mandate to meet this demand.â€œ
