Smart Grid Station Project
This project will be located at Ruwayyah in Dubai. The scope of work of this project involves construction of a Smart Grid Station. It is aimed at combining smart grids and smart buildings. The development features smart elements such as smart homes, photovoltaic panels, wind turbines, an energy-storage system, a smart water system, a smart-cooling system, energy-demand units, distribution automation, smart devices and smart lighting. The Dubai utility said in a statement that the SGS uses a variety of smart grid technologies to generate power through renewable sources, maximize energy efficiency through real-time monitoring and control systems, and also allows for the reduction of loads, especially at peak times; peak shift, and the reduction of water consumption. The station also incorporates over 2,000 sensors based on the Internet of Things (IoT) technology, and smart meters to monitor power and water demand data in real-time for the purpose of improved energy and water management, with the potential to reduce demand when required by eliminating non-critical loads. An Electric Power Company has been awarded the main contract. A ground-breaking ceremony for the scheme was held recently.
