Falcon Eye Drones, Dubai based drone-powered solutions company, introduced a sustainability practice to the portfolio of its wide range services in the Middle East. Drones for Sustainability vertical is designed to address the growing importance of sustainable business and industry practices across construction, oil and gas, agriculture, mapping, surveying, utilities, energy, and many other highly regulated sectors. Within the framework of the new practice Falcon Eye Drones will be sustainability proofing their upcoming developments by evaluating the amount of carbon footprint that will be avoided by utilizing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) to service a project; increasing its participation and contribution towards regional discussions at industry events and trade shows; and further contributing towards the education of relevant industry professionals and experts via co-hosted and independently organized events and training activities.

“While we are fully aware of drones’ impact on the time and cost efficiency of any project we encounter, sustainability of these ventures is an added value that industry players don’t fully recognize yet. Sustainability and renewable energy practices are some of the top priorities amongst the GCC and wider Middle Eastern governments and are explicitly reflected in their vision statements. By launching our Drones for Sustainability vertical, we are helping our customers to be much more sustainable, industry professionals to learn about ‘cleaner’ practices and our peers to continue their sustainable journeys while supporting further growth and progression of our flourishing region”, said Rabih Bou Rashid, Managing Director of Falcon Eye Drones.

Drones for Sustainability vertical was inspired by the increasing role UAVs play across many industries that lean towards clean energy practices. New practice was also boosted by the regional market sentiment on renewable energy and sustainability. The Middle East and North Africa’s (MENA) renewable energy market is currently dominated by the UAE and Saudi Arabia, where power requirements will grow by 6.4% each year until 2022. According to the World Future Energy Summit statement, the Middle East is expected to more than triple its share of renewable energy from 5.6% in 2016 to 20.6% in 2035, with solar making up the lion’s share of this figure. To successfully achieve this target, an estimated USD 30-40 billion of capital will need to be invested in future projects across the region.
