Dubai Electricity & Water Authority is seeking partners to help build 1,000 megawatts (MW) of solar power plants as part of the emirate's plan to diversify its energy sources.

Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, managing director and CEO of DEWA announced plans to launch projects to generate 1,000MW by 2030 as Dubai aims to provide 7 percent of its total power output from clean energy sources by 2020, 25 percent by 2030, and 75 percent by 2050.

DEWA said it intends to build the largest concentrated solar power (CSP) project in the world, using the independent power producer (IPP) model.

The state-owned utility firm said it has released a tender for leading international CSP consultants to submit their proposals for advisory services for the first 200MW project of the CSP plant which will be operational by April 2021.

DEWA added that it will generate 1,000MW by 2030 in the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum solar park, which is the largest single-site solar park in the world that uses the IPP model. It will produce 1,000MW by 2020 and 5,000MW by 2030.

The 13MW first phase became operational in October 2013, and the 200MW second phase will be operational in April 2017. When it's completed, the project will achieve a reduction of approximately 6.5 million tonnes of carbon emissions annually.

Al Tayer said: "We will continue to build clean and renewable energy projects in Dubai to support the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050, and the Dubai Plan 2021, to make Dubai a city whose environmental elements are clean, healthy, and sustainable."
