Dubai utilities authority encourages conservation
DEWA urges educational institutions in Dubai to cut consumption
In its pursuit towards the consolidation of the culture of good conservation of electricity and water as well as protecting natural resources against waste and loss, Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) launched several conservation initiatives, events and activities.
It hopes that all these initiatives will increase the awareness of local society so that conservation becomes a way of daily life, according to an official statement.
On the occasion of the call for candidacy of the educational sector, in partnership and collaboration with Knowledge and Human Development Authority, Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer MD and CEO of DEWA pointed out that DEWA is working in line with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. These directives stress the necessity of power conservation in order to conserve resources.
DEWA has ambitious plans to meet power and water conservation targets for the emirate of Dubai.
Al Tayer said that in partnership with the Knowledge and Human Development Authority DEWA has launched the “Conservation for a better future” prize which aims to promote individuals’ awareness of power and water consumption in Dubai’s educational institutions.
“We are seeking to spread conservation as a societal culture among the educational institutions in Dubai – either governmental or private. This prize will enable us to have partners in one of the most important sectors which we have always been trying to reach. If the coming generations believe in the importance of conserving our human resources, we’ll definitely succeed in building up a brighter future for them,” he said.
