There are also already 1,145 buildings with photovoltaic panels installed on the rooftops for clean energy generation, all connected to the Smart Dubai network, for a total capacity of 50MW. Moreover, the city has fixed a goal to reduce consumption of energy by 30% by 2030, which cannot be achieved without clear knowledge and awareness among consumers.
