Lulu Group has announced plans to open a 1MWp solar carport installation which includes four electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at its Dubai Silicon Central Hypermarket.

UAE-based solar energy provider, SirajPower, has been contracted to design, build, finance, operate, and maintain the installation.

The solar carport covers an area of 7,209 sqm and will produce 1.7 GWh of clean energy annually, offsetting more than 1,205 metric tons of carbon emissions – equivalent to nearly 20,000 tree seedlings grown for 10 years.

Lulu Group’s brand-new Silicon Central boasts a gross leasable area of 78,500 sqm of retail, F&B, cinemas, including a Lulu Hypermarket and department store spanning 16,800 sqm.

“As a group, we have already achieved the LEED Platinum certification for Lulu Group International Regional Headquarters and are committed towards a healthy and sustainable future. Our focus also remains in building malls that are environmentally friendly in the future, like Silicon Central, which is an environmentally friendly project using state-of-the-art technologies for waste management, energy savings and electrical charging stations in the car-parking area, ” said Salim M.A., director of Lulu Group International.

“The Fast-Moving-Consumer-Goods (FMCG) industry, as one of the largest market segments in the world, has been a catalyst for positive change through the accelerated emphasis on the importance of sustainability initiatives. In the UAE, we see a lot of businesses looking for solutions to significantly reduce their carbon footprints. It is encouraging to see that such large and reputable multinational conglomerates like Lulu Group are joining the journey towards a greener economy,” said Laurent Longuet, CEO at SirajPower.

SirajPower said that it had doubled its solar assets in 2020, achieving a 100 MWp distributed solar portfolio, making it the holder of the largest distributed solar energy portfolio in the UAE.
