German multinational Manz AG has revealed that it would be presenting its integrated turnkey production line Manz CIGSfab at the World Future Energy Summit (WFES), to be held in Abu Dhabi in January 2015
The Manz CIGSfab would be used for the production of CIGS thin-film solar modules. With the UAE at the forefront of a renewable energy transformation, Manz AG is keen to support the endeavour, revealed company officials.
Mohamed Alammawi, vice-president of sales in MENA for Manz AG, said, “The UAE is one of the frontrunners in developing, deploying and implementing the renewable energy source. We are confident that our solutions can help energize the UAE's transformation to alternative energy production.”
The UAE has surged ahead with investments and plans meant to diversify its energy mix and contribute to the goals of Vision 2030. One such example of the UAE’s commitment to solar energy is the Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park in Dubai, which costs US$3.2bn and is expected to produce 1,000MW of power upon completion.
In addition, solar panels have been installed in government buildings in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, as authorities in the country are keen to introduce regulations that would facilitate the use of rooftop solar panels by businesses and residents.
At WFES 2015, there would be a great deal of emphasis on renewable energy investment and technology. Alammawi said that research would help increase cost and energy efficiency in the future, and added that Manz AG was keen to share its insights with a global audience.
