Shanghai Electric was the official partner for the China Pavilion at Dubai World Expo 2020. It participated in the construction phase 4 of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, which is 950MW. The project includes a 700MW concentrated photovoltaic (CSP) and 250MW photovoltaics (PV) plants. It covers 44 kilometers, roughly the equivalent of 6,162 football pitches. The 100MW Solar Power Tower, measuring 262m in height and the tallest of its type in the world, is located in central CSP plant. It will provide clean energy for more than 320,000 households. DubaiAfter completion, households can reduce their CO2 emissions by about 1.6 Million Tons.
When Shanghai Electric planned and executed construction work, it was a key focus. To strengthen its environmental management and protect the fauna and flora ecosystem, the Company employed a number of conservation and ecology experts. Shanghai Electric conducted extensive research and surveys on local animals and plants during the planning stage. This helped to prepare for the wildlife relocation project.
Shanghai Electric, in collaboration with local animal protection agencies, created a specialist team to study animal behavior and devise a way to get wild animals out of the construction area. The team then decided that they would fence off the site and provide food and water for the animals at 200m intervals. This would allow them the opportunity to relocate them safely to other areas. Shanghai Electric has thus protected a variety of native animal species. DubaiThis includes lizards and camels as well as sword antelopes and foxes.
Emirates Environmental Group, the largest NGO in the UAE dedicated to environmental conservation, recognized Shanghai Electric’s contribution to the protection of the environment during construction of the Dubai CSP projects. They invited Shanghai Electric, the UAE’s largest NGO, to participate in the 2020 and 2021 “For Our Emirates We Plant” event. Eight Sidra trees have been planted in the Emirate of Dubai.

“The DubaiThe project covers a vast area of land, which is home for many wild plants and animals. This complicates the environmental management measures necessary to preserve the local biodiversity intactness. The team considered all possible threats to wildlife and helped to preserve the ecological system. DubaiGovernment to achieve carbon neutrality before 2050,” declared Zhao HuiThe manager of the Dubai project.
Shanghai Electric looked into ways to conserve resources and reduce the environmental impact of construction waste. This was in order to fulfill its responsibility to the environment. Shanghai Electric’s team collected plastic bottles and glass bottles, cans, as well as print cartridges for central recycling. The volume of recycled items recorded in 2021 was three times higher than the previous year.
Shanghai Electric, a global leader in renewable energy has been changing the energy landscape by promoting green development and unlocking the potential of the wind and photovoltaic revolutions to address global climate challenges. Shanghai Electric will push for innovation in green technologies and leverage its high quality clean products to support the global transition towards a sustainable economy.
