RWE Middle East wins Dubai consultancy contract
DEWA/German joint venture to advise on emirate's major energy questions.
RWE Middle East has been awarded new major consulting contracts in the MENA region.
The joint venture between the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) and RWE Consulting GmbH and RWE Technology GmbH is advising the government of Dubai (Dubai Supreme Council of Energy) on their Integrated Energy Strategy 2030.
The team will advise on all major questions of their Energy Strategy - from determining the ideal supply mix to demand side efficiency and energy innovation.
RWE won this project after a competitive selection process against all major strategy consultancies.
The joint venture already advises a leading energy company in Abu Dhabi on the development of their Smart Meter Strategy.
RWE’s experience in Smart Meter and Smart Grid paired with the strategic competence lead to convincing the client that RWE was the best choice out of a competitive selection process.
Peter Terium, CEO of RWE AG, explained the importance of these initiatives: “There are interesting regions that have not previously been the focus of our business activities, but still offer opportunities.
“We also want to increase our level of activity in the Arabian Peninsula and in North Africa and offer the countries of the Arabian Peninsula comprehensive consulting services. Our latest successes in particular the “Dubai integrated energy strategy project” were only possible due to the fact that our experts were able to win out in an intensive selection procedure against prominent global consulting companies. This shows that our expertise in energy matters is sought after. We enjoy a good reputation in the region.”
