The Dubai regulations - to be implemented imminently - mark the Middle East's first formal allowance of distributed renewable energy generation. These standards define requirements for connection to the Dubai transmission and distribution systems and set up a common framework for grid connection agreements.

The regulations especially assist deployment efforts for large commercial buildings and private industrial sites, which in an increasing number of cases can now generate solar power below the cost of grid-supplied, gas-fired power.
