A glimpse of our organizers
Since Dubai is one of the fastest growing cities in today's world, making the provision of high quality infrastructure facilities absolutely imperative, and since providing an advanced transport network for the people of Dubai has been high on the government's agenda, which is evident from its initiatives to enhance the public transport facilities and improve roads across the emirate to make travel safer and smoother, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) was formed by the decree number 17 for the year 2005. RTA is responsible for planning and providing the requirements of transport, roads & traffic in the Emirate of Dubai, and between Dubai and other Emirates of the UAE, neighboring countries in order to provide an effective & an integrated transport system capable of achieving Dubai's vision & serving the vital interests of the Emirate.
Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) was formed on 1 January 1992, by a decree issued by the late Sheikh Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum to merge Dubai Electricity Company and Dubai Water Department, which had been operating independently before then. Both organisations were established by the late Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum in 1959. Dubai Government fully supported the two organisations to provide Dubai’s citizens and residents with their electricity and water needs.
Since its establishment, DEWA has made considerable achievements, to be ranked as one of the best utilities in the world. Today, DEWA provides its services to more than one million customers in Dubai, according to the highest standards of efficiency, reliability, and availability.
DEWA’s results surpass major international utilities. DEWA reduced losses from electricity transmission and distribution networks in 2020 to 3.3% compared to 6-7% in Europe and the USA. Water network losses were reduced to 5.1% compared to around 15% in North America. DEWA also achieved the lowest customer minutes lost per year (CML) in the world of 1.66 CML compared to around 15 minutes in Europe.
