United Arab Emirates Emirates Global Aluminium has purchased Clean Energy Certificates for 1.1 million megawatt hours of electricity supplied by Emirates Water and Electricity Company, supporting EGA’s production of CelestiAL solar aluminium.The certificates track the use of solar power from Noor Abu Dhabi, one of the world’s largest single-site solar power plants. Noor Abu Dhabi is located at Sweihan, and has 3.2 million solar panels generating approximately one gigawatt of electricity.The transaction is the largest acquisition to date of Clean Energy Certificates that track the use of solar power in Abu Dhabi, and will certify EGA’s production of around 80,000 tonnes of CelestiAL. The volume of CelestiAL EGA produces each year depends on solar power imports from the electricity grid. The generation of the electricity required for aluminium production accounts for approximately 60 per cent of the global aluminium industry’s greenhouse gas emissions. The use of solar power by EGA significantly reduces these emissions in line with the UAE’s Net Zero by 2050 Strategic Initiative.
