DEWA looking to produce green hydrogen for vehicles

Utility firm says green hydrogen is one of the pillars of a sustainable future

Consulting companies have been invited by the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) to submit offers to develop an ambitious strategy to produce green hydrogen.

To achieve the objectives of the Dubai Green Mobility Strategy 2030 and encourage the use of sustainable transportation and the Hydrogen Vehicles System, the new project aims to develop the hydrogen economy, open up local markets to hydrogen vehicles, and encourage an increase in the number of environmentally-friendly vehicles.

According to a statement from DEWA, green hydrogen represents one of the pillars of a sustainable future that depends on accelerating the transition to carbon neutrality to support a green economy. The objectives are to develop the green mobility sector, reduce carbon emissions from various industries, generate electrical and thermal energy and produce water and other applications.

The Green Hydrogen project, implemented in collaboration between DEWA, EXPO 2020 Dubai, and Siemens Energy at its R&D Centre in the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, is the first in the Middle East and North Africa to produce hydrogen using solar power. The pilot plant was designed to facilitate future applications and test platforms of different uses for hydrogen, such as energy production and transportation, the statement explained.

MD and CEO Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer said the production of green hydrogen is part of DEWA’s efforts to support the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 and Dubai Net Zero Emissions Strategy 2050 to provide 100% of the energy production capacity from clean energy sources by 2050.

He remarked, “This project contributes to paving the way for building a green economy based on clean energies, and among the green hydrogen.”

In partnership with Emirates National Oil Company, DEWA is studying building a hydrogen fueling station, he concluded.
