He underscored that COP28  provides the opportunity to showcase the country’s inspiring and globally leading model in climate action

“This is part of our responsibility as a Principal Pathway Partner of COP28, and the exclusive electricity and water services provider in Dubai. At COP28, DEWA will showcase its achievements in the comprehensive and sustainable development journey, as well as its efforts to enhance public-private collaboration, build partnerships, and exchange experiences and success stories,” said Al Tayer.

Driving sustainability

DEWA has developed major projects and is implementing initiatives to achieve the goals of the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 and the Dubai Net Zero Carbon Emissions Strategy 2050 to provide 100 per cent of Dubai’s total production capacity from clean energy sources by 2050.

The Dubai-listed company has several pioneering initiatives and projects to diversify its sources of energy.

These include multiple clean and renewable energy sources and technologies such as photovoltaic panels, concentrated solar power, green hydrogen production using solar power, and pumped-storage water technology using clean energy in Hatta.

Earlier in October, the utility giant commissioned the 200 megawatts (MW) second unit of the fourth phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, with an estimated cost of up to Dhs15.8bn

The 950MW fourth phase is the largest single-site project in the world that combines concentrated solar power and photovoltaic technologies.
