Service Station of the Future

Using solar and wind power to energise the future, ENOC’s Service Station of the Future brings together sustainable developments and technological advances with modern designs for a next-generation experience.

ENOC’s Service Station of the Future is the perfect amalgamation of futuristic design, environment friendly solutions and technological advances that all work together to create a unique fueling experience. Inspired by the Ghaf tree with its deep roots and far reaching canopy, this service station acts as a symbol of resilience and co-existance.

The world’s first service station to receive a platinum certification in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), ENOC’s Service Station of the Future uses various eco-friendly alternatives to everyday scenarios. For instance, it uses high efficiency LED lights that save 60 percent more energy compared to conventional lighting and 20-30 percent more energy compared to regular LEDs.

The service station is also primarily powered by both wind and solar energy. A 25 metre wind turbine, the first of its kind in the UAE, generates an output capacity of 12.7MWh, powering the station and allowing it to have its own on-grid metering facility. Its 283 integrated solar panels also provide it with an energy yeild of 143 MWh every year, while also providing natural lighting during the day with 100 percent UV protection. All of this energy uses a dedicated building management system that efficently monitors and controls HVAC, lighting systems as well as water and electrical consumption.

This service station leans into its ‘future’ element, with an interactive fuel dispenser complete with cashless payment features and fueling indicator sensors with wayfinding intelligence systems, which all work together to reduce waiting periods and enable a seamless fueling experience.

Located at the Expo 2020 Dubai site, the Service Station of the Future will serve the event’s entire fleet of vehicles ahead of, and during, its six-month duration. It will also serve members of the public as part of a lasting sustainable legacy after Expo 2020 Dubai ends in March 2022.

The design of ENOC’s Service Station of the Future also follows the same eco-friendly and technological path. It is comprised of 37 tonnes of eco-friendly carbon fibre (three times stronger and five times lighter than steel) to construct the canopy, while 133 leaf shaped Ethylene Tetrafluoroethylene (ETFE) cushions allow for a high corrosion resistence and wide temperature range. Additionally, light-dimming motion sensors on the canopy dim the lights when no motion is detected, saving 10-15 percent of energy. The service station is also the first in the region to use carbon filteration technology to treat waste water to be used for irrigation purposes and reducing water consumption.
