UAE Business: DHL and TotalEnergies to develop solar project in Dubai – Gulf Digital News

The whole solar system will produce enough energy to power over 16,000 homes yearly in the UAE. In addition to supplying the sites with solar power eight electrical vehicle charging stations will also be installed. With this, DHL Global Forwarding contributes to the Group’s goal of electrifying 60% of its fleet by 2030.

The move is in continuation with the companies’ Strategic Cooperation Agreement signed in 2019. TotalEnergies will solarise eight of DHL’s sites in Dubai to cover the equivalent of over 46,000 sq m of photovoltaic panels. The solar system will save more than 6,000 tonnes of CO2 the first year. The project complements Deutsche Post DHL Group’s sustainability roadmap to achieve zero-emissions logistics from 2050 onwards.

“With an annual average of 8.7 hours of sunshine per day, Dubai has a clear advantage in terms of solar energy. I am all the more pleased that we can use this asset to advance our sustainability goals further,” said Amadou Diallo, CEO DHL Global Forwarding Middle East
