Dragon City Bahrain, the Kingdom’s largest wholesale and retail trade centre, has taken a significant step towards supporting environmental efforts and sustainability by installing solar panels to produce clean energy, in cooperation with Vitol Energy.

The initiative includes the installation of over 10,000 solar panels on 1,300+ shaded car parks at Dragon City Bahrain, generating an impressive 9,500 mwh of electricity annually and reducing emissions by 6,500 metric tonnes per year. This makes it Bahrain’s second largest solar plant and biggest solar parking lots.

The official inauguration of the solar panel project was marked by a special ceremony attended by His Excellency Dr. Mohammed bin Mubarak Bin Dainah, Minister of Oil and Environment, and Special Envoy for Climate Affairs, Eng. Ahmed Al Ammadi, CEO of Diyar Al Muharraq and Board Member of Dragon City Bahrain, as well as senior officials and stakeholders.

On the occasion, Eng. Al Ammadi stated: “We are delighted to be launching the Dragon City solar plant under the patronage of His Excellency Dr. Mohammed bin Mubarak bin Daina. This pioneering initiative aims to serve members of our local community and encourage sustainability across Diyar Al Muharraq’s various residential and commercial projects. At Diyar Al Muharraq, we remain dedicated to investing in environmentally conscious practices in line with our vision to build a sustainable city for both residents and visitors.”

The installation of solar panels at Dragon City Bahrain is in line with national efforts to achieve net zero emissions by 2060.

The implementation of the solar panel project is expected to have a significant impact on the environment, reducing emissions by 6,500 metric tons per year. This will help to improve air quality, reduce pollution, and contribute to a healthier and more sustainable future for the community.
