Dubai to build $13.6 Billion solar park


Under the Arabian sun, a monumental construction effort is making headway. Located deep within Dubai’s desert interior, the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park — named after the emirate’s ruler and the United Arab Emirate’s vice president and prime minister — continues to grow and has just passed another milestone.

In its eighth year of development, satellite images give a sense of scale already: miles of photovoltaics arranged along neat east-west lines, their uniformity at odds with the creases and crinkles of the sands surrounding the energy plant. Once finished, Dubai Energy and Water Authority said the $13.6 billion investment could power as many as 1.3 million homes, reducing carbon emissions by 6.5 million tons annually.
