UK Solar Pioneer Expands to Middle East

From installing solar on hundreds of UK schools to developing a unique combined solar thermal and solar electric roofing system, Solarcentury have always been pioneering and ambitious. In fact it's this ambition that led them to be named "Britain's fastest growing energy company", and saw them opening Solarcentury offices in Spain. Now the company is spreading even further afield—teaming up with Enviromena Power Systems, the leading developer of solar projects in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) to deliver solar to the United Arab Emirates.
The partnership between Enviromena and Solarcentury has just been announced, and no details of new projects have yet been released. Enviromena has already made a name for itself by installing the largest grid connected solar plant in the Middle East, the Masdar 10MW Solar Power Plant. Given Solarcentury's proven track record of creating high-profile, modern solar across Europe, this should be an exciting partnership to watch.
Sami Khoreibi, CEO, Enviromena Power Systems commented: "Our collaboration with Solarcentury, the UK's leading solar energy company is an example of this and we look forward to a successful long term partnership, particularly as the need for solar energy steadily increases across the Middle East and North Africa. This is a very exciting time for solar across the Gulf, particularly given the strong support provided by the UAE Government, the recently announced renewable energy targets and the Middle Eastern climate which is very well suited for wide scale solar implementation."
If the world really is going to kick the fossil fuel habit, I can think of no better place to get started than the Middle East. Looks like Solarcentury might agree.
