The Ministry of Climate Change and the Environment, in collaboration with the Khalifa University for Science and Technology and the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), has launched a laboratory for artificial intelligence based on artificial intelligence techniques to identify the locations of solar energy concentrations. to identify and monitor and analyze the levels and sources of air pollutants in the country. The quality of water, to keep pace with the strategy of the artificial intelligence of the Emirates, and to improve the quality of the goals of Vision 2021.
Dr. Thani Bin Ahmed Al Zaidi, Minister for Climate Change and Environment, said: "The Ministry's artificial intelligence laboratory is in line with Emirates' artificial intelligence strategy, the pioneering initiative announced through the wise leadership within the UAE 2071 goals. . "
Al-Zuwaidi emphasized that the Ministry would like to be a pioneer in government agencies that apply all tools and techniques in the field of artificial intelligence and ensure high efficiency in achieving the strategic goals.
"The lab aims to protect the local environment by carefully monitoring and analyzing the available information and using it when making the right decisions, based on the latest available global technologies, which play a crucial role in the environmental sector. especially in the field of monitoring, data analysis, communication, storage and retrieval. It is normal to integrate and strengthen all these tasks using systems based on knowledge and artificial intelligence ».
The laboratory comprises three main systems: instantaneous solar maps in the UAE, a solar simulation system and an environmental monitoring system, which includes immediate monitoring and prediction, and the monitoring system for the marine environment.
Solar photovoltaic maps and the solar simulation system contribute to an optimal location planning for the use of solar panels for energy generation, and contribute to mapping an integrated system of plants and solar power plants as an energy source.
The environmental monitoring system, which includes immediate monitoring and forecasting, includes data on concentrations of air pollutants, as well as data on satellite air quality indices, and also includes a series of maps showing the concentrations of air pollutants and their orientation to the state, and the three key pollutants such as carbon monoxide. , nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide, ground ozone, particulate matter with a diameter of less than 10 microns and a model for predicting concentrations of particulate matter with a diameter of less than 2.5 microns for five days.
