Dubai, UAE: Huawei Network Energy, a global leader in the photovoltaic (PV) industry, is showcasing its solar energy capabilities and global leadership in Smart PV Solutions at this year’s Dubai Solar Show, 4th to 6th October 2016 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Center.

Organized by Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), Dubai Solar Show is dedicated to bringing the latest solar innovations and showcasing the largest solar projects in region providing a unique platform for building partnerships between government and private sectors in pursuing innovative solutions.

Huawei ranked No.1 globally in 2015. Its FusionSolar Smart PV inverters achieved global shipments of 10.5 GW in the year, thanks to its extensive investments in R&D. Huawei filed 100 patents in PV sector, 90% are invention patents.

During the exhibition, Huawei will be signing a contract with Phanes Group, an integrated solar energy developer and investment manager, to develop the PV market in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) with Huawei’s FusionSolar Smart PV Solution. The MEA market presents great potential for PV applications. Huawei solution represents the trends that PV power generation is getting more intelligent, seen in the PV industry in MEA and globally.

Huawei’s smart PV solutions have been widely deployed in solar plants around the world. Huawei optimizes and innovates the entire process of the power plant construction and operations. With its designs that integrates digital information technology and with PV technology, Huawei helps solar power developers to optimize initial investments, reduce O&M costs, raise the energy yield, and therefore improves ROI.

“Sustainable energy has become a focal point in many national development strategies as the world looks to the renewable energy sector to provide efficient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly solutions for today’s growing energy needs,” said Paul Pan, General Manager of Huawei Smart PV MEA Business.  “Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 was announced by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum. Huawei is bringing its global expertise in developing and deploying next generation smart PV solutions to support Dubai’s vision for clean, sustainable energy.
