Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, DEWA, has won three Golden Globe Tigers Awards in Sustainability Leadership. The awards are for Best Renewable Resources - Energy, Best Renewable Resources - Green Building, and Best Renewable Resources - Sustainable Transport, for the Green Charger initiative. DEWA received the awards in a special ceremony in Malaysia. The awards underline DEWA's intensive efforts to protect natural resources, and achieve sustainable development across all areas.

Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA, said he was proud of DEWA's achievements. "Winning three awards at the Golden Globe Tigers Awards 2016 emphasises our success and commitment to the vision of Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. It also reflects our commitment to the UAE Vision 2021, and the Dubai Plan 2021, which have clear roadmaps with ambitious initiatives and development projects that combine economic development with the sustainability of energy and a clean, healthy, and safe environment.

This helps to make Dubai a smart, integrated, and sustainable city that achieves sustainability of resources and provides a clean, healthy, and sustainable environment. This in turn ensures green growth, enhances energy efficiency and management of waste, optimises resources, establishes sustainable communities, and focuses on research and planning to promote sustainable development," said Al Tayer.

"In line with the Smart Dubai initiative launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum to transform Dubai into the smartest city in the world, DEWA has launched three smart initiatives. These are 'Shams Dubai', to connect solar energy to buildings, 'Smart Applications through Smart Meters and Grids', and the 'Green Charger' to establish the infrastructure and build electric vehicle charging stations. Our objective in the transition to become the smartest city in the world is to achieve the happiness of society and provide instant and seamless smart services anytime, anywhere. Dubai has all the capabilities to reach the top position globally and has already become a leading global hub for trade, finance, tourism, green economy and sustainability," added Al Tayer.

"The construction of the eco-friendly Sustainable Building in Al Quoz supports the Green Economy for Sustainable Development initiative, launched by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, to build a green economy and drive sustainable development. DEWA's Sustainable Building is the largest government building in the world to receive a platinum rating for green buildings from Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, LEED, in the USA. The building uses 66 percent less energy and 48% less water than other buildings by adopting the best international standards in green buildings," said Al Tayer.

"In line with our vision to become a sustainable world-class utility, DEWA has achieved unprecedented results, and is today a global role model in performance, reliability, efficiency and service, compared with leading global organisations. This award reflects our aspirations and ongoing efforts to be in the lead by implementing the best international standards across all of our projects," concluded Al Tayer. - Emirates News Agency, WAM –
