The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has confirmed that it fielded a tariff of
US$1.6953 cents per kWh in a tender for a 900 MW plot of its 5GW Mohammed bin Rashid
(MbR) solar parks – a bid it claims sets a world record for the indepedent power producer
(IPP) model. The tariff comes very close to the record bid of €1.476 cents per kWh – or US
$1.644 cents per kWh by today’s exchange rate – lodged in a Portuguese government
auction in August. DEWA’s chief executive officer Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer said that the
utility had achieved “a world record in getting the lowest price for PV solar power projects
based on the IPP model.” Al Tayer added that the 900MW tranche of the solar park will
increase production capacity of the park to 2,863 MW and help the emirate reach its aim of
generating 75% of Dubai’s total power output from clean energy by 2050.
