The project consists of installing 4,500 solar modules over an area of 10,551 square metres, to produce 3.6 gigawatt-hours of clean energy annually once complete.

It is expected to offset more than 1,496 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions every year.

Emirates Group-owned Sevens Stadium hosts the annual Emirates Dubai 7s as well as other international sporting and entertainment events throughout the year.

It features eight floodlit sports fields, six cricket ovals, four netball courts and 15,000 parking spaces.

Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, the facility hosted 7,000 to 10,000 people each week during the winter season for community sports.

According to SirajPower, the facility is now being transformed into the region’s greenest sports arena and Dubai’s largest solar carport in a single location.

MEED understands the ‘greening’ of the stadium follows similar projects elsewhere, such as in Tawain’s Kaohsiung, The Mercedes Benz Arena in Atlanta, US, and the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, UK.
