SunPower Corp. has announced the construction of a 1-megawatt solar power system on the roof of the Masdar Institute building, Masdar City, located on the outskirts of Abu Dhabi. The system is installed on a canopy structure that provides shade for the roof terrace as well as clean, renewable solar power for the facility.

"The Masdar Institute building is the first to be completed in Masdar City. The sophisticated campus provides the ideal setting to drive real innovation and a concrete path to the technologies critical to powering," said Alan Frost, Director of Masdar City. "With its reputation for reliable, high quality technology, SunPower's high-efficiency solar panels were selected to maximize the solar power generated by the system and achieve our renewable energy goals."

"The Masdar Institute is the nucleus of research and development activities in Masdar City and has a key role in the development of the city," said SunPower Managing Director Jorn Jurgens. "SunPower is pleased to be part of this groundbreaking project, helping Masdar City to achieve their renewable energy goals with SunPower E19 solar panels, which deliver record-breaking efficiency of at least 19.3 percent in standard conditions."

SunPower has more than 1 gigawatt of solar technology installed on homes, businesses and power plants worldwide.
