DEWA Invites Turkish Firms to Take Part in WETEX and Dubai Solar Show

DEWA CEO highlighted the authority's key projects and initiatives, especially in clean and renewable energy

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) organised a virtual seminar with 90 leading Turkish companies in the energy and water sectors. H.E. Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD&CEO of DEWA, gave a speech during the seminar, which was attended by 117 participants.

He highlighted DEWA’s key projects and initiatives, especially in clean and renewable energy. He also talked about the development of trade relations between the United Arab Emirates and the Republic of Türkiye.

Al Tayer invited Turkish companies to take part in the 24th Water, Energy, Technology and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) and Dubai Solar Show, which DEWA organises from 27-29 September 2022 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Al Tayer said that the United Arab Emirates and the Republic of Türkiye have formed strong ties that have grown stronger under the leadership of H.H. Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of UAE and H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President of UAE.

"Our two nations have strong economic ties together. The UAE is Türkiye’s first trade partner in the Arab region and it ranks second in direct investments among the GCC countries, Al Tayer said.

"The two countries have ratified a Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA) which is expected to double the bilateral trade between us from the current $13.7 billion," he added

Al Tayer further said: “In line with the vision of our wise leadership, we have a clear strategy and specific goals to increase the share of clean and renewable energy in Dubai’s energy mix.

"In line with this direction of our government, we have launched pioneering projects and initiatives to diversify clean energy sources.

"These include different clean and renewable energy sources and technologies such as solar photovoltaic systems, Concentrated Solar Power (CSP), green hydrogen production using solar power as a new clean energy source of the future and pumped-storage hydroelectric power technology.

"We will continue to work hard to achieve these ambitious goals. The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park is part of DEWA’s efforts to support the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 and the Dubai Net Zero Emissions Strategy 2050."

Dr. Yousef Al Akraf, Executive Vice President of Business Support and Human Resources at DEWA, gave a presentation on WETEX and Dubai Solar Show, which is organised by DEWA.
