Continuous growth and development has been the core focus of Solar Frontier starting from developing the CIS Modules R&D since the early 1990s to starting commercial production in 2007. By 2009, a world record-setting R&D facility along with full-fledged production plant was established setting the stage for continued global growth in the renewable energies industry.

In 2017, the UAE officially launched “Energy Strategy 2050”. The strategy targets an energy mix that combines renewable, nuclear and clean energy sources which meets UAE’s economic requirements and environmental goals.

Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, aims to increase the contribution of clean energy in the total energy mix to 50 per cent, thus saving AED 700 billion by 2050.

There needs to be a focus on environment and economic growth and a greater focus on environmental economics.
