Majid Al Futtaim Sets Up Solar Hybrid Power System at Tilal Al Ghaf

The new system is set to reduce the Office’s carbon footprint by 222 metric tonnes over 12 months

Majid Al Futtaim Communities, part of Majid Al Futtaim Properties, continues to drive more sustainable and eco-friendly buildings, leading into a new era of innovation, adaptation, and solution.

Following their ambition to develop thriving and sustainable communities, underpinned by placemaking environments derived from the principles of well-being, today marks another great achievement towards their ambitious sustainability and clean energy goals.

Being the first project in Dubai to achieve BREEAM interim certification and home to the region’s first Zero Positive building, Majid Al Futtaim Communities is rigorous about auditing their energy, water and waste consumption.

As part of this, the team continually seek ways by which they can reduce their footprint, from the integration of ample blue and green infrastructure throughout the master plan to the reduction of the urban heat effect to using clean energy solutions throughout all public and private buildings.

The introduction of an innovative  Solar Hybrid Power system to the Tilal Al Ghaf Office adds substantial weight to the community’s already established green credentials.

The new system is set to reduce the Office’s carbon footprint over 12 months. Feeding power directly to Tilal Al Ghaf’s Office, as well as adjacent office and storage buildings, the Solar Hybrid system comprises 133 solar modules, 150 Li-ion batteries, and a powerful 116kWh DC inverter.

Robust enough to meet the predicted total annual power requirement of 169,965 kWh, the system will supply nearly two-thirds of this requirement in the form of clean solar energy, with the remaining 32% met by its Diesel generators.

As well as delivering to Majid Al Futtaim Communities’ sustainability targets, replacing the site’s traditional diesel-powered system with the Solar Hybrid Power system brings the added benefit of a persuasive cost saving of over 56% against historical spend per annum.

In terms of operational efficiencies, the system’s inbuilt ‘plug-and-play’ capabilities has enabled it to be rapidly deployed with zero downtime to the power supply during installation.
