DEWA highlights its sustainability efforts at Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) is participating in four panel discussions during the World Future Energy Summit. Hosted by the Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company (Masdar) from 16th to 18th April 2024, the event aims to accelerate the pace of sustainable development and advance economic, social, and environmental development.

 

DEWA is also showcasing its key projects and innovative initiatives in sustainability and renewable and clean energy at its stand in Hall No. 5 (Energy Hall) at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC).

 

"The vision and directives of the wise leadership of President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, have contributed to promoting the pioneering position of the UAE in investing in renewable and clean energy. DEWA’s participation in the World Future Energy Summit is part of our commitment to supporting pioneering national events that promote sustainability. It also supports our strategic partnership with Masdar. Our efforts integrate to develop innovative solutions and projects that consolidate the UAE’s leading global position in sustainability and the transition towards clean and renewable energy sources, as well as providing world-class platforms for exchanging experiences and best practices and highlighting the latest technologies and investment opportunities in the clean and renewable energy sector,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA.

 

“Through the World Future Energy Summit, we aim to share our experiences and expertise in diversifying energy sources and increasing the share of clean energy in Dubai. This supports the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 and Dubai Net Zero Carbon Emissions Strategy 2050 to provide 100 percent of Dubai’s total power production capacity from clean energy sources by 2050,” Al Tayer added.

 

On the first day of the World Future Energy Summit 2024, Mohamed Abdulkarim Al Shamsi, Chief Officer Climate Change and Sustainability at DEWA, is participating in a panel discussion titled ‘Navigating a low carbon pathway to a just energy transition’. Al Shamsi will highlight DEWA’s efforts in sustainability and the transition towards clean and renewable energy sources, in line with the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 and the Dubai Net Zero Carbon Emissions Strategy 2050 to provide 100% of the energy production capacity from clean energy sources by 2050.

 

On the second day of the summit, Mohammad Jame, Vice President - Clean Energy and Diversification at DEWA, will participate in a panel discussion titled ‘Energy decarbonisation: Tripling installed renewables by 2030’. Jame will highlight DEWA’s efforts in renewable energy and the latest developments in the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park DEWA is implementing. This is the largest single-site solar park in the world, based on the Independent Power Producer (IPP) model. By the end of 2023, its production capacity reached 2,627 MW. By 2030, its production capacity will exceed 5,000 MW using solar photovoltaic panels and concentrated solar power.

Dr. Ismail will highlight DEWA’s pilot Green Hydrogen Project at the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park. It is the first project of its kind in the MENA region to produce hydrogen using solar power. The pilot project has been designed and built to accommodate future applications and test platforms for various uses of hydrogen, including energy production and transportation. The production of green hydrogen is mainly carried out through electrolysis using renewable energy sources.
