The British delegation accompanying London Mayor Lord Michael Bear to the UAE has shown interest in Dubai's independent power projects (IPPs) in desalinated water and electricity production, DEWA has said.

Lord Bear and the high-level delegation, including heads of diplomatic missions, trade bodies and representatives of 17 UK companies, were received at the office of DEWA CEO MD and CEO HH Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer.

The meeting was also attended by Nejib Zafraani, Secretary-General of Dubai's Supreme Council of Energy, Waleed Salman, Acting Vice-President, Strategy and Business Development, as well other top officials.

Al Tayer, in his capacity as the Vice Chairman of Dubai's Supreme Council of Energy, outlined the general framework of the council's strategy, focused on securing uninterrupted supply of energy, and the most important initiatives undertaken to keep up with the growing demand for energy.

Lord Bear praised DEWA and the global reputation it had attained in its achievements to date, and said the proposed IPPs were a significant opportunity for UK companies.
