The Kanoo Group inaugurates its first ever solar rooftop project at Kanoo Machinery’s warehouse


The Kanoo Group, one of the largest family-owned business conglomerates in the region, has inaugurated its first ever large-scale solar rooftop project last December 22 in line with the UAE’s sustainability goals.


The Group’s first solar rooftop system was inducted in the warehouse of one of its divisions, Kanoo Machinery—one a leading provider of world-class machinery brands for sales and aftersales in the region—in Al Quoz, Dubai.


Initiated and supported by our Chairman Mishal Kanoo, the inauguration was made in partnership with Enerwhere, the region’s first distributed solar utility company, and was attended by various managers and leaders across The Kanoo Group’s divisions.


Energy consumption through global lighting is without a doubt an arising issue. Lighting accounts for 15% of the global electricity consumption and 5% of worldwide greenhouse gas emissions. The Kanoo Group remains always one step ahead when it comes to addressing these concerns through launching several sustainable initiatives—such as these solar rooftop systems.


The inauguration, led by The Kanoo Group CEO Fahad Kanoo and Enerwhere Founder and CEO Daniel Zywietz, aims to reflect the Group’s strategy to encourage its divisions to opt for renewable sources of energy to reduce carbon emissions and work towards the goals set by thse Federal Government.

The CEO also noted the importance of such initiatives now that the threat of global warming and climate change are becoming more and more imminent. “It is our duty to step up and ensure that we take part in the worldwide effort to address this common challenge. We all have a role to pursue a transition to alternate resources and technologies—and be a responsible energy supplier,” he said.


Meanwhile, Chairman Mishal Kanoo, who spearheaded the initiative, said that the solar rooftop system is just one of the many solutions that reflect the conviction of the Group to solve the complex energy problem in a sustainable manner.


“On behalf of The Kanoo Group, I am beyond proud of the new undertaking as it shows our resolve to use innovative technology in order to come up with sustainable solutions. We believe in the business model of Enerwhere, and I am confident that it will start a solar revolution across the region. We want to encourage everyone to build an impactful business that can provide value to their partners, while saving the planet,” he said.


With the new solar rooftop systems project, The Kanoo Group hopes to achieve the following:


-          System Size: 490 Kwp of Solar PV             

-          Production of 15,894 Mwh during System Lifetime

-          Carbon Reduction: 6,993 Tons of CO2 Emission System Lifetime

-          115,390 trees saved during System Lifetime


Enerwhere, The Kanoo Group’s main partner for this initiative, is the first and leading distributed solar utility in the Middle East and Africa, as well as one of the largest solar contractors under DEWA’ Shams Dubai programme. Its solar-hybrid solutions have been proven to be reliable and transportable, enabling its customers to significantly reduce their costs and CO2 emissions.
