As a further element in the value chain of renewable energy in the UAE, Abu Dhabi will shortly launch the Solar Roof Program (SRP), which aims to encourage residents, commercial building owners and government buildings to install solar photovoltaic (PV) systems on the roofs to generate green electricity.
Like in several European countries, the SRP is a government sponsored financial incentive program designed to make the use of solar photovoltaic (PV) on rooftops more affordable to consumers. It shall trigger the implementation, ownership and operation of over 500MWp PV installations by private individuals, companies and other entities.
