Noor Abu Dhabi

The world’s largest single-site solar project, Noor Abu Dhabi began commercial operations in April 2019. Located at Sweihan in Abu Dhabi, it covers an area of 8 kilometres and features 3.2 million solar panels. Noor in Arabic means light, and the project produces approximately 1.2 GW of power that can cover the demand of 90,000 people. The project enables increased production of renewable energy and reduces reliance on the use of natural gas for electricity generation resulting in a carbon footprint reduction of 1 million metric tons per year, which is equivalent to taking 200,000 cars off the road.
