The largest renewable energy project in the Middle East, Shams 1, covers 2.5 square kilometres in Madinat Zayed in the Western Region, and will generate 100 megawatts of clean and sustainable energy - enough to power 20,000 homes, and the biggest step so far towards Abu Dhabi's goal of obtaining 7 percent of its energy from renewable sources by 2020, according to local media.
