In talks with Samer Ayyash , Partner, MBA, CEM® Director Electrical Division

Consolidated consultants Group will be exhibiting its latest products at The Big 5 Solar in Dubai this November. We spoke to the Director, Samer Ayyash; here's what he told us as he prepares to participate to the the  largest solar meeting place.

How do you find the solar market in the Middle East right now?

Middle East region is considered one of the most attractive areas for Solar Development project where it is anticipated that from now on, more than 20 Gigawatts will be installed by 2023. All of that due to the governmental policies for different countries in the region, legalization for net metering installations, cost increase of conventional energy prices (HFO and Gas) along with the drop of solar systems and technologies. Moreover, Middle east irradiation maps show that this area is the most attractive one from technical and financial perspectives.

Why would you recommend doing business in this region?

In addition to the geographical location and irradiation characteristics for the Middle East region, Middle East and Gulf region are hub for all new technologies in different trades. Moreover, the strong investment environment, existing expertise in different fields, availability of skilled professionals and labours, and fair legalization for all business activities, are considered as an edge for the region.

What are the top 3 trends in the industry according to you?

Due to ease of installation, low initial cost along with technology advancement, PV modules along with investors and solar heating system components are the most attracting trends.

What do these mean for your company?

As part of CCG mission and vision as a leading service provider through delivering sustainable solutions, design, studies and environment friendly solutions, Solar energy and systems play major role in our innovative solutions and designs. Accordingly, CCG at all the times keep tracking and updating all of its experience in alignment with the technological developments related to solar energy.

Moreover, CCG was able to deliver its services with the highest quality and standards compliance. And finally, CCG delivers all type of supporting services such as civil design, architectural, engineering, etc. which is considered as our competitive edge compared to others in the industry. CCG mission and vision is to continue and expand within the region and world.

What products will you present at The Big 5 Solar?

CCG will demonstrate its experience in solar energy along with vast experience in different engineering sectors which will form a favorable partner for all clients, developers, contractors, lenders and other stake holders. CCG experience, agile project management, innovative designs and experienced resources will help in reducing construction time, minimize variation orders, improve systems performance and increase added value for all of its projects.

Why is there demand for them in the Dubai/Middle East?

Dubai and Middle East region are considered as the most attractive areas within the world, which made all decision makers and leaders in those areas to take the lead and provide energy and solar plants as environmental friendly ones. In addition, cost of solar energy is very low which will help in improving the economy for different countries in the region.
Nowadays, with many projects coming from small scale to Mega and even Giga scale, Dubai and Middle East region are considered as great business opportunity for all service providers, manufacturers, developers, and contractors.

How will the exhibition help you to grow business in the UAE?

This exhibition is a great opportunity for CCG to expand and share its experience in Solar energy in other countries, through meeting decision makers, different contractors and developers. This exhibition will help in showing our projects portfolio and how we were able to improve all project types (from small scale to Mega scale) in terms of performance, reliability, cost, time and quality. This event will be a great networking opportunity.
