Clean Energy Business Council together with EWS-WWF, UNF-CCC and The Sustainable City, in cooperation with the Dubai Solar Show being organised by Dubai Electricity & Water Authority is delighted to present the second annual Dubai Solar Show Seminar Week. Leading global industry experts will share their expertise, knowledge and insights, and through DEWA’s generous support and commitment to education, information and knowledge sharing, these seminars are free to attend.
DEWA prioritises Dubai’s sustainable development, to make the city a global hub for green economy, and reduce carbon emissions. This is achieved by increasing reliance on renewable and clean energy resources, retrofitting buildings, enhancing energy efficiency, and increasing sustainability awareness among stakeholders. This is in implementation of the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 which aims to provide 7% of Dubai’s energy from clean sources by 2020, 25% by 2030, and 75% by 2050.
In line with this strategy, DEWA has launched many mega projects and leading initiatives, including the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, which is the largest single-site solar project in the world. DEWA has also launched a number of smart initiatives to support the Smart Dubai initiative to make Dubai the smartest and happiest city in the world. This also includes Shams Dubai, to encourage building owners to install photovoltaic solar panels to generate electricity.
DEWA’s expansion continues to meet the ever growing demand for electricity and water and continues to maintain its corporate structure and functioning in the most professional and advanced ways to ensure its continued success in the years to come. With a vision to become a sustainable innovative world-class utility, DEWA has also been committed for the past 19 years to organising the Water, Energy, Technology and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) in its quest for innovative technologies and solutions, best practices and global partners that will help improve the quality of electricity and water not only for Dubai but also for the benefit of the entire region.
