Around 12,500 solar panels will be installed in four Majid Al Futtaim Malls in Dubai to increase its use of power generated from renewable energy.
Enova, a joint venture between Dubai’s Majid Al Futtaim and Veolia of France, will install the solar panels in the Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Deira, City Centre Mirdif and City Centre Fujairah.
The two companies signed this week a deal for the installation of the solar panels to mark World Environment Day.
Majid Al Futtaim, the mall operator, wants at least 5 per cent of the energy that it uses to power its operations to come from renewables by the end of the year.
The malls expect to save Dh80 million in energy cost for the next 25 years using solar energy.
