ENOC Group announced today that its ‘Fuel Station of the Future’ at Expo City Dubai is now accessible to the public as part of Expo’s long-term sustainable legacy. “We are thrilled to announce the public launch of the innovatively constructed ‘Service Station of the Future,’ which is part of Expo’s enduring sustainable legacy,” said Saif Humaid Al Falasi, Group CEO of ENOC.
Since its unveiling, the service station has met the logistical demands of the whole Expo 2020 Dubai fleet both before and during the event. We intend to address the fuel and convenience demands of the public in the region as Expo City Dubai welcomes a lot of residents and companies.
Within the 4.38km2 World Expo site, the 5,841.87-square-meter station harnesses renewable energy via 283 solar photovoltaic (PV) panels placed to create 143MWh of solar power, as well as a 25m wind turbine that will provide 12.7MWh of wind energy yearly.
The Service Station of the Future has been recognised by a number of global and local organisations for its unique design and environmental features since its debut.
In addition to receiving the LEED Platinum certification from the US Green Building Council (USGBC) for its strong focus on renewable energy, water efficiency, energy savings, and CO2 emissions reduction, the service station has also won a number of awards including The Architecture MasterPrize 2021, the Corporate Social Responsibility Award from Idea of the Year Awards, and Sustainable Project of the Year.
The Service Station of the Future most recently won the Arab Energy Efficiency Day Competition for ‘Best Energy Management Systems in Industrial Facilities,’ which was held in Cairo, Egypt.
