UAE’s Ministry of Climate Change and the Environment have collaborated with the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and Khalifa University of Science and Technology (KUST)to establish artificial intelligence laboratory in a bid to track solar energy concentrations.

Collaboration with IRENA and KUST aims to identify solar energy concentrations across the country and keep a check on air pollutants in the country.

The minister of Climate Change and Environment, Thani bin Ahmed Al Zeyoudi said, “The ministry launched the laboratory in line with UAE’s strategy for artificial intelligence. The laboratory aims to protect the local environment by monitoring and analyzing the available information accurately and using it in making the right decisions, based on the latest global technologies.”

Further, three main systems in the laboratory includes real time maps of solar photovoltaic locations in the UAE, an environmental monitoring system and a marine environment monitoring system.

According to the MOCCAE, the solar photovoltaic maps will help determine the best locations for solar panels and will contribute to an integrated system of solar power plants.

Additionally, the inclusion of artificial intelligence within the applications of renewable energy segment is a breakthrough primarily initiated by UAE. This will add to the Arab country’s endeavor for sustainable resources of energy.
