Dubai Investments is installing the first-of-its-kind coloured Kromatix panels for a kindergarten building by Dubai Municipality in Al Twar, Dubai, through its joint venture entity Emirates Insolaire.
Technology Kromatix panels are on a kindergarten building
The building façade totals 2,000 square metres. As part of its commitment to UAE’s sustainability mission, Dubai Investments has provided a total of 800 KromatixTM active and passive panels.
The attractive façade of the kindergarten is accentuated with solar panels by Emirates Insolaire in different colours, including Green, Blue, White, Orange and Red, which offers the building a never-seen-before, colourful aesthetic look.
With the Kromatix panels, the kindergarten fulfils the criteria to be certified as a Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) building.
Emirates Insolaire has completed installation of its solar PV modules in several locations across the world, including Lausanne, Basel, Leysin, Austria, Zurich, Copenhagen, Brazil and Germany.
Emirates Insolaire’s coloured and sustainable solar panels can be adapted to any façade and roof of a house or building – commercial, residential or skyscraper.
The project mirrors the surging demand for solar panel technology across the region and globe.
According to an analysis by Frost and Sullivan, the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries are expected to increase their installed solar capacity 50-fold between 2015 and 2025. ■
