Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has invested heavily in Artificial Intelligence (AI) to innovate solutions, programmes and initiatives that improve the performance and productivity, as well as promote the quality of DEWA’s services.
Through Digital DEWA, the digital arm of DEWA, the entity has reshaped the concept of a utility to contribute in creating a new digital future for Dubai, and disrupt the entire business of public utilities by becoming the world’s first digital utility to use autonomous systems for renewable energy and storage while expanding the use of AI and digital services.
Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Managing Director and CEO of DEWA, said: “DEWA’s plans align with promising government strategies and plans, including the UAE Artificial Intelligence Strategy 2031, which aims to develop an integrated system that employs AI in vital areas of the UAE, and the Dubai 10X Initiative, launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, which mandates the Government of Dubai to aid Dubai’s progress into leading the future by making it ten years ahead of other cities through government innovation and reshaping traditional frameworks.”
He added: “DEWA’s application of the latest innovative technologies has helped it achieve the best results globally compared to top utilities in Europe and the USA. The smart adoption of DEWA’s services reached 98.99 per cent until the end of the second quarter of 2022. DEWA has completed the digital integration of more than 70 projects with government and private organisations.”
Digital DEWA is based on four pillars: launching advanced solar power technologies; deploying a renewable energy grid with innovative energy storage technologies; expanding and integrating AI solutions to make Dubai the first city to provide electricity and water services using AI technologies and digital services.
