Dubai Expo 2020 pavilion sustainably powered by a Fronius PV system

17/11/2022 / Dubai, United Arab Emirates

With a 52.45 kWp rooftop installation, the Belgian government supplies its Dubai Expo 2020 pavilion from renewable energy using four Fronius Symo on-grid inverters.

What is it being used for and Why did they invest into PV?

The Belgium Pavilion at Expo 2020 offers a unique comics-inspired tour of the future of mobility, letting you see yourself as a character as you explore smart infrastructure, self-driving vehicles and more. Being a futuristic movement focused on green and renewable energies, solar panels could not be missing, as they are in charge of supplying the whole building with renewable energy. 


In 2020, the Kingdom of Belgium took the decision to install a 33 kW rooftop, extending it to the final 52.45 kW during the construction phase due to aesthetics.

Navitas as a Fronius System Partner has been working closely with Fronius in sales, so they are experienced with the product and appreciate the brand for its easy handling and quality. 

When approached by a premium customer like The Kingdom of Belgium, they knew Fronius Symo was going to be the perfect for them, as it is an inverter with better temperature derating; efficiency and production. Being Fronius in the end, the first choice of customer.
