Dewa signs up for Dubai energy forum
Dubai, April 6, 2013
The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) said it has signed up as a strategic sponsor for the second session of the Dubai Global Energy Forum (DGEF 2013) to be held from April 15 to 17 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Held under the patronage of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, this year’s Forum’s theme is ‘Clean Energy for Sustainable Development.’
Dewa’s sponsorship of the forum is in line with the aspirations of the Government of Dubai and its national long-term initiative launched by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, ‘Green Economy for Sustainable Development,’ which aims for the UAE to be a world leader in the field of sustainability.
"Our sponsorship of the energy forum emphasizes Dewa’s support for the aspirations of our government in its determination to transition to a green economy, and stems from our belief in the need to use clean energy to fuel sustainable development in the emirate and the UAE in general, as well as our resolve to become a truly sustainable globally renowned utilities company,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, the vice chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy and MD and CEO of Dewa.
"The Forum, which is organized by the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy, is of great importance at the local, regional and global level. It serves as a global platform for clean energy experts and industry representatives to develop solutions to pertinent issues, discuss the latest developments and potential opportunities in this vitally important sector," stated Al Tayer.
The topics and themes for the second session were confirmed by the Supreme Council at a press conference held last week.-TradeArabia News Service
