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.
