Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, DEWA, in support of the vision of Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, and the UAE in its preparations to host the best World Expo that the world has ever been seen in Dubai, DEWA has launched a wide variety of initiatives, allocating over Dh 2.6 billion to boost electricity, water, and renewable energy projects according to the highest international standards.

DEWA focuses its efforts on setting up an excellent energy infrastructure that meets the emirate's development needs to achieve the Dubai Plan 2021 to make Dubai a smart, integrated and connected city that has a high-tech infrastructure that supports social and economic development to be on a par with the best cities in the world. This supports Dubai Expo's theme of ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future' and its three sub-themes of sustainability, mobility and opportunity.

To emphasise its commitment to sustainability, one of the main pillars of World Expo 2020 in Dubai, DEWA has also assigned a large part of the budget to clean-energy-related projects in support of the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050, launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, to provide 75 percent of Dubai's total power output from clean energy by 2050.

This will make Dubai's carbon footprint the lowest in the world. Most prominent of these projects is the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum solar park and the Shams Dubai project to encourage building owners to install photovoltaic, PV, panels to generate electricity from solar energy and connect it to DEWA's grid. DEWA has also budgeted for research and development, and research and innovation in renewable energy. All these will promote sustainable development in the UAE. – Emirates News Agency, WAM -http://www.wam.ae/en/news/general/1395291567239.html
