HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA, honoured 10 customers from Dubai's Mirdif area for their successful reduction of electricity consumption.

The initiative was part of the first phase of DEWA's pilot project to encourage homeowners and households across the Emirate in implementation of the Demand Side Management Strategy, to reduce energy and water demand by 30% by 2030.

The project included direct communication with customers, through various communication channels.

It provided them with customised reports explaining their consumption details, tips to reduce their consumption, and comparisons between electricity and water consumption, as well as those of neighbouring homes.

Al Tayer said: “Through this leading project, we are committed to transforming Dubai into a model for a smart sustainable city, in collaboration with our partners from the public and private sectors.

"This supports the objectives of the Dubai Plan 2021, as well as our efforts to contribute to the implementation of the Demand Side Management Strategy.

"The strategy aims to reduce energy and water demand by 30% by 2030 to move to a more sustainable future. This establishes a sustainable energy-saving model that supports economic growth without compromising the environment and its natural resources.” 

Al Tayer commended the home and building-owners’ positive feedback in the first phase of the project.

He applauded the high level of environmental and community awareness demonstrated by the participants and their efforts to reduce energy and water consumption.

He noted that DEWA will continue to launch initiatives and projects to consolidate the concept of conservation between all segments of society.
