Dubai is developing a programme that will allow 10 percent of its homes to be self-sufficient in terms of water, food and energy – mainly with the help of clean solar projects, said a government official. “The achievement of this goal will help change lifestyles and contribute to the preservation of our environment. We aim to create a new economic sector that supports energy, water, and food self-sufficiency," said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, vice chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy and MD and CEO of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa). The project, which will see the installation of solar panels in citizens’ homes, will be implemented under the government’s Shams Dubai initiative.
