Abu Dhabi switches on the largest ‘virtual battery plant’ on Earth
The UAE is known to break world records. Added to the list including the world’s tallest building and the world’s largest desalinated water reservoir is the world’s largest virtual battery plant. This 108 MW/648 MWh sodium-sulfur battery plant is five times larger than the Hornsdale battery installed in Australia last year.
Aiming to spend $160 billion by 2030, Abu Dhabi is heavily investing in renewable energy. It’s great so see so many initiatives in the UAE taking shape to promise a greener future that is energy independent.
In line with the Shams Dubai initiative, Sun In Motion is also happy to contribute towards this great cause. Offering residents the opportunity to go solar, we are happy to encourage the adoption of renewable energy.
