Majid Al Futtaim is the world’s leading shopping center, community, retail, and leisure innovator in the Middle East, Africa, and Asia. A 6.2-megawatt peak solar power plant was inaugurated by Yellow Door Energy at The Bahrain Mall. It is operated by Carrefour Bahrain. Yellow Door Energy is the most trusted partner in sustainable energy for industrial and commercial businesses throughout the Middle East, Africa, and more.
The solar power purchase agreement was signed by Majid Al Futtaim with Yellow Door Energy. The roof of The Bahrain Mall has seen more than 11,000 solar panels installed. It covers an area of over 40,000 square metres. The rooftop solar plant, with a peak power of 6.2 megawatts, produces 10 million kilowatt-hours (equivalent to 7,100 metric tons) of clean energy within the first year.
Laurent Hausknecht is the Regional Director for Gulf at Majid Al Futtaim Retail. He said that it was an immense pleasure to participate in this historic launch with Yellow Door Energy. The installation of solar panels on The Bahrain Mall’s roof brings us closer to our Net Positive Strategy. This will allow us to continue the company’s vision of creating “great moments for everybody, every day”, but it will also enable us to transform the environmental savings into unforgettable experiences for all visitors to The Bahrain Mall every single year.
