Dubai: Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) is investing Dh37 million to upgrade its infrastructure to enhance energy efficiency, save power and protect the environment.

This announcement was made by Saeed Al Tayer, vice-chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy and managing director of Dewa during a press conference held in Dubai on Tuesday.

These developments will include a lighting retrofit project within the Jebel Ali Power Station and the Al Awir Power station worth Dh21 million, the cost of which will be recouped by energy savings within three and a half years, Al Tayer said.

Retrofit projects on seven Dewa buildings will cost Dh16 million, which is also expected to be repaid through savings over six years, he added.

The two projects will be executed by Philips Lighting and MAF Dalkia Middle East and monitored by Etihad Energy Service Company (ESCO). These projects are expected to be completion in December.

“This initiative is in line with the objectives of Dubai Integrated Energy Strategy 2030, which aims to reduce energy demand by 30 per cent and reduce carbon emissions by over five million tonnes by 2030,” Al Tayer said.

Etihad ESCO will further drive similar initiative with the private and public sectors including Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) and Jebel Ali Free Zones Authority (Jafza), Stephane Le Gentil, CEO of Etihad ESCO told Gulf News.
