Digital technologies in electricity and water are the order of the day for Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA) during GITEX Technology Week 2019.
DEWA is demonstrating its key initiatives that use artificial intelligence and disruptive technologies to enhance the experience of its customers, partners, employees, and other stakeholders through the five-day exhibition.
“GITEX Technology Week is an important opportunity to highlight DEWA’s AI applications and its smart and innovative solutions,” said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA.
“These are part of our strategy to support the Smart Dubai initiative, which aims to make Dubai into the world's smartest and happiest city.
“This is also part of our efforts to contribute to transforming Dubai into a global centre for disruptive technologies and to keep pace with the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
“These also contribute to achieving national strategies, including the UAE Centennial 2071, the National Artificial Intelligence Strategy 2031, the UAE Strategy for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, the Dubai Plan 2021, which aims to make Dubai proactive and creative in meeting the needs of individuals and society as a whole, and the Dubai Paperless Strategy, which aims to build an integrated paperless government framework by 2021.”
DEWA has its own stand (S2-D1) and is also part of the pavilion of Smart Dubai Government Establishment, the technology arm of Smart Dubai Office.
“Through Digital DEWA, our digital arm, we are redefining the concept of a utility to create a new digital future for Dubai to support the Dubai 10X initiative, which was launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to propel Dubai into the future, putting it 10 years ahead of other global cities through government innovation and disruptive technologies.
“DEWA will disrupt the entire business of public utilities by becoming the world’s first digital utility to use autonomous systems for renewable energy and storage. At the same time, we are expanding our use of AI and digital services.”For the latest MEP news from the UAE, Gulf, and around the world, follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn.
