Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) has reportedly collaborated with Canadian companies to work on clean and renewable energy projects, which comes in line with managing director and chief executive officer of Dewa, HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, meeting with high-level Canadian delegation.

According to Dubai Media Office, Al Tayer met with Canada's Consul General for Dubai and the Northern Emirates, HE Marcy Grossman, and Trade Commissioner at the Consulate General of Canada in Dubai, Gabriel Jabbour to discuss Dewa’s strategy for the energy sector.

Speaking about the collaboration, Al Tayer explained that the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 aims to diversify the energy mix to cover 75% of Dubai's total clean energy production by 2050.

Dewa’s Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, which is the largest single site solar park in the world with a capacity to produce 5,000MW of energy by 2030, is being built with an investment of $13.6bn (AED50bn).

Commending Dewa’s achievements, Grossman said that Canadian companies and institutions are interested in Dewa’s projects which are aimed at promoting sustainable development in Dubai.
