Residents of Sharjah Sustainable City will be the first in the region to have access to renewable energy storage thanks to an agreement with a leading German company.
Hager Group has signed a memorandum of understanding with the SEE Institute — the research and development arm of The Sustainable City — to install the batteries in the Dubai-based community.
The agreement, of which Sharjah Sustainable City is the first beneficiary, formalises an ongoing relationship with Hager Group to test and deploy the latest technologies in demand management and smart energy solutions.
Yousef Ahmed Al-Mutawa, chief executive officer of Sharjah Sustainable City said: “Renewable energy is one of the biggest contributors towards achieving net zero carbon and this partnership with Hager Group will allow us to reach the highest possible energy efficiencies and the lowest energy intensities in our development.”
