There are plans to adopt the “IREC” certificate, a tool that is dependent on the market. This certificate is issued when a MWh of electricity is generated from a renewable source and then connected to the network.

The MoU was signed by the CEO of Dubai Carbon, Ivano Iannelli, and the CEO of ENGIE Middle East, South and Central Asia, and Turkey, Sebastian Arbola.

Mr Iannelli reported that the main aims of the agreement is to exchange knowledge, work on leading-energy solutions, and to build a better sustainable future for Dubai and the UAE.

The centre hopes to support the government in becoming a green economy and establishing smart cities, aligning with and achieving the goals of UAE Vision 2021.
