Silicon Central’s solar carport to generate 1.7 GWh of clean energy annually

Line Investments & Property LLC, the shopping mall and management division of Lulu Group International, has announced the launch of 1MWp solar carport and 4 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at Silicon Central. It was installed early this year by SirajPower as part of the mall’s sustainability initiative.

The solar carport project covers 5,500 sqm and will produce 1.7 GWh of clean energy annually, offsetting more than 1,205 metric tons of CO2 emissions equivalent to nearly 20,000 tree seedlings grown for 10 years. The brand-new Silicon Central boasts a GLA of 80,000 sqm of retail, F&B and cinemas, including a 9,000 sqm Lulu Hypermarket and department store spanning 7,800sqm.

“As an environmentally friendly project at Silicon central we are committed towards a healthy and sustainable future and fully support the region’s vision to mitigate carbon emissions to create a more sustainable economy. The solar plant system is a testimony to our commitment to sustainable development and reducing carbon footprint in line with Dubai’s vision to transform into a carbon-neutral economy by 2050,” said Salim M.A., Director of Lulu Group International.

“This initiative will help us transition to clean energy via our innovative solar carport solution and we will continue working towards reducing our greenhouse gas emissions using state-of-the-art technologies for waste management, energy savings and electrical charging stations in the car-parking area.”

Alongside providing energy for day-to-day operations of the mall, the Solar Carport will also provide shaded car parking and charging slots for electric cars. The facility will help reduce the mall’s carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
