Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW) and Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) announced today the signing of a three-year partnership agreement to sponsor annual Water, Energy, Technology, and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) and Dubai Solar Show.
The agreement was signed at ADSW 2023 by Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of DEWA, and Mohamed Jameel Al Ramahi, Chief Executive Officer of Masdar.
As per the agreement, DEWA will be the ADSW opening ceremony associate partner from 2023 to 2025, while Masdar will be the WETEX jubilee sponsor for the same period.
Al Tayer said,
“DEWA and Masdar have a strategic partnership that supports the vision of the wise leadership for a sustainable future in the UAE. We are pleased to sign this partnership agreement, which supports our common vision to enhance the pioneering position of the UAE in investing in renewable and clean energy. We collaborate to develop innovative solutions and projects that contribute to building a sustainable future for us and for generations to come. ADSW and WETEX are leading events that support the government strategies in the UAE, including the UAE Net Zero by 2050 strategic initiative and the Dubai Net Zero Carbon Emissions Strategy 2050 to provide 100 percent of Dubai’s total power capacity from clean energy sources by 2050.”
Mohamed Jameel Al Ramahi, Chief Executive Officer of Masdar, commented,
“We are pleased to enter into this partnership that will help advance our shared goals for global collaboration for sustainability. Masdar has long recognised the value of WETEX, which stands alongside Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week as a major event on the global sustainability calendar and demonstrates the commitment of the UAE leadership to accelerating the energy transition. Through platforms such as WETEX and ADSW, the UAE is driving the global sustainability agenda and taking a leading role in climate action. We look forward to continuing to enjoy a productive partnership with DEWA on future events.”
The partnership agreement will ensure greater alignment between the two key UAE platforms, in line with the UAE’s long-term sustainability vision and net-zero objectives, and ahead of the 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28), taking place in the UAE from 30th November to 12th December.
