Dubai is a city with ambition and a reputation for breaking records. While the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has become synonymous with oil, much of Dubai’s growth has, in fact, been driven by large investments in construction and real estate. The city built the world's largest artificial islands, the world’s tallest hotel and recently announced plans to build a new tower in Dubai to surpass the world's current tallest building. It has even announced plans to construct the world’s first 3-D printed building. With this in mind, it’s perhaps no surprise that when Dubai turned its attention to the renewables sector, its ambitions were never going to be modest.
