Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA)’s pavilion in Expo 2020 Dubai welcomed 547,493 visitors from 1 October 2021 to the end of February 2022 with visitors praising DEWA’s smart and innovative projects.
Several local and international officials from public and private organisations visited DEWA’s pavilion in the Sustainability District. These included a 40-person Brazilian delegation, many university professors and students, researchers, and stakeholders in different areas of clean and renewable energy.
Visitors praised the sustainable and smart house designed by the FutureHAUS team from Virginia Tech University in the USA, which won the first place in the 1st Solar Decathlon Middle East, which DEWA organised in 2018. The sustainable house is cost- and energy-efficient while preserving the cultural and social environment of the Middle East as well as taking into account the region’s climate.
DEWA’s pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai displays its key projects and initiatives, such as the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, the largest single-site solar park in the world; the Green Hydrogen project, the first of its kind in the Middle East and North Africa to produce hydrogen using solar power; Digital DEWA, the digital arm of DEWA, is making DEWA the first digital utility in the world with autonomous systems for renewable energy and storage with the expansion in AI and digital services; and the 250MW hydroelectric pumped-storage power plant in Hatta.
At its pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, DEWA is providing a unique and innovative experience for visitors to introduce them to its efforts that contribute to making Dubai the smartest and happiest city in the world through pioneering projects and initiatives, especially in clean and renewable energy using the Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies to redefine the concept of a utility and become the world’s first digital utility.
