Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) is set to highlight its key initiatives and projects aimed at boosting the share of renewable and clean energy sources at the upcoming World Energy Congress (WEC).

The Dubai utility firm is also sponsoring the Start-up Energy Transition (SET) Awards at the WEC, to support entrepreneurs in the clean and renewable energy sector.
"The WEC is an important platform that will bring together experts, specialists, and decision-makers from around the world to exchange best practices and learn about the latest technologies, and investment opportunities in the renewable and clean energy sector, and evaluate the competitiveness of global energy options," said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, the managing drector and CEO.
