Solarix wins Emaar Innovation Challenge

May 24, 2022

High skyscrapers, lots of sun and a willingness to make major strides in making construction more sustainable. Dubai is a city with great potential for integrated solar energy solutions. We are therefore extremely proud that we have won the Emaar Innovation Challenge with our aesthetic solar facades!

Of the 209 registrations for the challenge, Solarix was selected as one of the 14 parties for the ‘demo days’ in Dubai. A great program for a week organized by EMAAR in collaboration with Wouter Trufino Global Proptech with the latest innovations and the opportunity to get to know each other and Dubai better.

What is the Emaar Innovation Challenge?

Emaar is one of the largest project developers in Dubai, known for the tallest building in the world and Stocklisted to the Dow Jones. Emaar wrote the Innovation Challenge . In the Sustainability challenge, we were asked how we can use buildings in a sustainable way in the direction of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and which can actually be achieved. This includes daily energy consumption for the building’s utilities, production and transport of building materials and a system for waste management during and after construction.

    Solarix pitched for this Sustainability challenge and was selected together with Pininfarina, E.ON, WakeCap, OTTAN, Sablona, Vepa – Vertical Parking, Solcold, Zypho, Terrax, Vybe Construction, Recyclex, Basilisk Self-healing Concrete and Desert Board for an international adventure to Dubai. A wonderful week full of inspiration and new opportunities under the guidance of Wouter Truffino from Global Proptech.

    A sunny ending

    We couldn’t have closed the week better than proudly receiving the prize from the Emaar Innovation Challenge for the Sustainability component. As Solarix, we see enormous potential in all high-rise buildings, where a lot of energy can be generated with our aesthetic solar facades. The potential yield with the large amount of Sundays in Dubai is of course enormous.
