“DEWA contributes to achieving the ambitious goals of the Dubai Economic Agenda (D33) launched by  His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to double the size of Dubai’s economy over the next decade and consolidate its position among the top three global cities.

We provide all the necessary facilities for industrial, commercial, and residential projects and provide smart services to accelerate the provision of electricity and water services according to the highest international standards and practices. Al Namoos enhances Dubai’s competitiveness and consolidates its position as an international hub that attracts investors by facilitating business.

The large increase in the number of requests for electricity connection through Al Namoos service in the first half of 2023 reflects the strong performance of all economic sectors in Dubai, which ranked first globally in attracting greenfield foreign direct investment projects in 2022, for the second consecutive year,”

said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA.

Rashid Bin Humaidan, Executive Vice President of Distribution Power at DEWA, said that DEWA launched the Al Namoos service in 2014 for consultants and contractors as part of a facilitation package for industrial, commercial and residential projects. The service has reduced the procedures for getting electricity for projects up to 150 kilowatts to just two steps within five days.
