A delegation from the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, or Dewa, has met Dutch officials from the Kingdom of the Netherlands while making an official visit.
The delegation, headed by Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of Dewa, met officials from the public and private sectors in both Rotterdam and Amsterdam.
The visit supports Dewa's efforts to exchange expertise and review the latest technologies and best international practices in smart transformation. The meetings discussed topics of mutual interest, particularly Dewa's supporting the transformation of Dubai into the smartest city in the world.
During his meetings with Dutch officials, Al Tayer explained that Dubai has a clear strategy for sustainable development, based on the vision of His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, who last November launched the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 to provide seven per cent of Dubai's energy from clean sources by 2020. The strategy consists of five main pillars: infrastructure, legislation, funding, building capacities and skills, and having an environmentally-friendly energy mix.
