The Net Zero Energy Alsheraa Building was launched at the WETEX 2016, demonstrating DEWA’s commitment to sustainability and renewable energy. The 140,000 Sq. Meter Building will be powered by a 26,500 Sq. meter solar PV array designed to generate in excess of 7,000 MWh annually. The building will also adopt the latest in energy and smart technologies which will result in a EUI of less than 70 kWh/m2/year.
The Design is based on a competition entry won by Skid more Owings & Merrill (SOM) with the detailed design and construction documents now being implemented by Obermeyer GmbH, one of Germany’s largest independent building consultancies. Green Technologies FZCO has been serving as DEWA’s Project Innovation and Development Consultants since August 2015, and congratulates DEWA on their efforts in pushing the built environment into the next generation of smart buildings.
