Dewa to showcase smart initiatives at Gitex
24 Aug 2014

The Dewa will be present at the Dubai Smart Government’s stand at Gitex, which will be held from October 12 to 16 at the Dubai World Trade Centre. 


The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, or Dewa, is participating in Gitex Technology Week 2014, with its participation supporting the Smart Government initiative launched by His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and the Dewa’s efforts to promote its smart services.

The Dewa will be present at the Dubai Smart Government’s stand at Gitex, which will be held from October 12 to 16 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

The Dewa was one of the first governmental organisations to announce the complete transformation of its services into smart services in less than a year after the launch of the Smart Dubai initiative, which aims to transform Dubai into the smartest city in the world. Through its participation at Gitex, the Dewa aims to reach a larger segment of users and encourage using its smart services that enable customers to complete their transactions easily and conveniently. Through the smart services, the Dewa can meet a large number of requests and transactions simultaneously without any delay.

“Our participation in Gitex... aims to demonstrate the Dewa’s latest smart services and initiatives to visitors and customers, and encourage them to adopt a smarter and easier way of living. The Dewa’s smart transformation will help build a better future for everyone by effective participating in achieving the vision of His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to achieve the satisfaction and happiness of the customers by making government services available to them round the clock in support of the strategy of the government,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, managing director and chief executive officer of the Dewa.

Among the initiatives it will showcase at Gitex, the Dewa will highlight its three initiatives that support the Smart Dubai initiative to transform Dubai into the smartest city in the world. The first initiative is to encourage households and building owners to install photovoltaic solar panels to generate electricity, which can be consumed within the premises with the surplus to be exported to the Dewa’s grid.

The second initiative is deploying smart metres and applications that enable customers to directly monitor their actual electricity and water consumption through their smart device or PC. The third initiative includes establishing the infrastructure for electric-vehicle charging stations.
