Huge Career Potential in the Dubai/UAE Solar Sector

The findings of a survey into the Dubai solar sector by the Emirates Solar Industry Association (Esia) and PwC were presented by Hannes Reinisch a senior manager at PwC at the Solar Industry Summit in Dubai yesterday.

Major player in solar

While most respondents to the survey expected moderate growth in the UAE’s solar industry in the next five years, more than 60 per cent expected that in a decade the industry would become a major player in the region.  Dubai has recently started building a 13MW plant and Waleed Salman, chairman of the Dubai Carbon Centre, said Dubai planned to create “not less than 800MW” by 2030

Huge career potential

It seems that the Dubai solar sector is going to see sustained growth over the next 10 years, so expect to see continued growth in demand for solar and renewable energy professionals for years to come. So, this a good area/sector to be focussing your career in within Dubai and the UAE.
