On display is the REC Peak Energy Series solar panels which are proven and widely recognized for
setting new industry benchmarks for high product quality and best suited for the mostly arid desert
conditions of MENA.
REC Peak Energy Series solar panels have a “desert-proof” accreditation for passing the Blowing Sand Test by SGS, a global inspection, verification, testing and certification company. The test
measures durability in harsh desert environments characterized by blowing sand and confirms that REC solar panels are also ideally suited for use in desert regions.
After opening an office in Dubai six months ago, REC has reported positive interest in its products from MENA to tap into the potential for solar panel products in this region.
In addition, a cleaning solution from REC partner NOMADD (No-water, Mechanical, Automated Dusting Device) is located at the REC booth. The cleaning solution can do an automated, daily, dry sweep of panels and its embedded sensors guide it and govern operations preventing sand and dust from affecting performance.
The countries of the Middle East are diversifying their oil-dependent economy because they are either
burning their oil or natural gas for power generation. A solar installation could reduce oil consumption and allow them to export more of their oil resources at an international market price or to use it for other industrial applications. At the same time, solar projects will boost the local economy and generate employment for locals. Saudi Arabia, for example, has set a target of 41 GW of solar power by 2032, which is one third of its power needs, and has established the necessary framework to implement
renewable energy projects.
