Paving the way for a sustainable, renewable energy future

Enabling reliable power supply for growth in the digital age. The world’s population is growing – the demand for energy is growing faster. This presents four core challenges for a sustainable energy system: security of supply, affordability, climate protection. With the resource efficiency it will take ingenuity to succeed. 

Middle East Power: Outlook 2035

Bold strategies can help diversify the energy mix and secure sustainable power for the Middle East for decades to come. This comprehensive report explains the shifting dynamics of the region's energy sector.

Siemens partners with DEWA & Expo2020 Dubai for MENA region’s first ‘Green Hydrogen Project’

Siemens has partnered with Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA) and Expo2020 Dubai to develop together a solar driven hydrogen electrolysis pilot facility at the DEWA Outdoor Testing Facilities of DEWA Research & Development Center in Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park in Dubai, UAE.

The core elements of the pilot facility include ‘green hydrogen’ production using a solar PV powered PEM electrolyzer, hydrogen storage and final utilization of solar hydrogen for various uses such as re-electrification (storage and grid services), transportation, or other industrial applications.

The aim of the pilot facility is to collaborate between the public and private sector and allow the parties to research end-to-end technical solutions, and evaluate the role that green-hydrogen could play in addressing the energy challenges of the future.

Along with our partners DEWA and Expo 2020 Dubai, we made the commitment less than a year ago to bring green hydrogen to Dubai. With this ground-breaking ceremony, we are inching closer to making this a reality. Siemens has pioneered this space globally, generating green hydrogen from renewable energy using Proton Exchange Membrane electrolysis. This project will be an important contribution to the evolving energy mix in Dubai and the UAE.

Demanding targets

Mastering the operation of a Sustainable Energy system

Working on the improvement of energy efficiency has always been a core driver for the industry. And it has made tremendous progress in providing innovative technologies that contribute to the better utilization of fossil and renewable resources as well as generated power. Still, this is not enough to meet demanding targets.


What does it take to future-proof energy infrastructure? The answers lies in rethinking the way in which it is operated and serviced. A data-driven approach for the entire energy value chain enables utility providers to manage the performance of their energy assets, lower maintenance and operations costs, and achieve the highest return on investment while ensuring a reliable and safe power supply to the society.


Take a minute to listen to the opinions of high-level experts:

New possibilities by smart digital technologies

More market participants produce much more data than ever. In a large gas turbine alone, for example, hundreds of sensors measure temperature, pressure, flow paths, and gas compositions every second. And all of them – producers, prosumers and consumers – have to be connected in a smart way in order to enable a stable operation of the Future Energy System. Given that there’s no other way than taking the opportunities of digitalization: State-of-the-art analysis methods are required to ensure this data is intelligently evaluated and utilized.
