Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) is the sole provider of electricity and water to Dubai and generates 9,656 MW of electricity and 106,184 MIGD of water.
Today DEWA employs a workforce of more than 10,000 employees who constantly endeavour to see that both the quantity and quality of services provided are of the highest standards in consistency and reliability.
DEWA is 100% owned by the Dubai Government and a member company of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy which is the governing body of Dubai tasked with policy development, planning and coordinating with concerned authorities & energy bodies to deliver new energy sources while employing a balanced approach to protecting the environment.
DEWA was formed on 1 January, 1992, by a decree issued by the late Sheikh Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum to take over and merge the Dubai Electricity Company and the Dubai Water Department that had been operating independently for several years until then. Both these organisations were established in 1959 through the foresight and initiative of His Highness Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, the late Ruler of Dubai, as government-supported bodies with the objective of making available to the people of Dubai an adequate and reliable supply of electricity and water.
Today, after five decades, DEWA is an inspiring success story known for its efficiency and reliability in every facet of its operations. Constant planning and forecasting to meet the growing demands of the customer has always been DEWA's well entrenched philosophy. Owing to this policy, DEWA has come a long way in serving the customers and thereby making its own contributions to the economic growth of Dubai.
DEWA’s expansion continues to meet the ever growing demand for electricity and water and continues to maintain its corporate structure and functioning in the most professional and advanced ways to ensure its continued success in the years to come. With a vision to become a sustainable innovative world-class utility, DEWA has also been committed for the past 19 years to organising the Water, Energy, Technology and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) in its quest for innovative technologies and solutions, best practices and global partners that will help improve the quality of electricity and water not only for Dubai but also for the benefit of the entire region.
