         The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) on Dec. 20 said that it will build the Gulf Cooperating Council region’s first hydroelectric power station — a 250-MW pumped storage hydro plant that will be powered by solar PV. The new facility is one of several new projects announced by DEWA as part of the Hatta Comprehensive Development Plan. According to DEWA, the pumped storage hydro plant will be completed within five years DEWA’s other projects include installing electric vehicle charging stations in Hatta and solar PV panels on rooftops to produce electricity from solar power.
