Nights of Ramadan in Dubai

Ramadan graces us with the splendor of its days, and gives us through its night’s acts of obedience and the splendor of worship.

It has become a welcome breeze that we feel every year, quenching the thirst of our hearts and souls with its faith reviving programs.

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) was formed on 1 January, 1992, by a decree issued by His Highness Sheikh Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum to take over and merge the Dubai Electricity Company and the Dubai Water Department that had been operating independently for several years until then. Both these organisations were established in 1959 through the foresight and initiative of His Highness Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, the late Ruler of Dubai, as government supported bodies with the objective of making available to the people of Dubai an adequate and reliable supply of electricity and water.

To date, DEWA has made considerable achievements ranking it as one of the best service utilities in the world. 2013 saw several accomplishments including the inauguration of M-Station, the UAE’s largest power and water desalination plant that has the production capacity of 2,060 megawatts (MW) of electricity and 140 million imperial gallons of desalinated water per day (MIGD). This followed the opening of DEWA’s Sustainable Building in Al Quoz, the largest government building in the world with a Platinum rating for green buildings from Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED).

Additionally, peak demand for water reached 296 MIGD compared to 285 million in 2012 (an increase of 3.85%).

In terms of benchmarking, DEWA outperformed the private sector and top European and American companies in efficiency and reliability, reducing the proportion of electricity wastage from 7.03 % to 3.46 % between 1998 and 2013. This rate compares to the US and UK, which recorded 6.28% and 7.7%, respectively.

Water losses fell from 42.5% to 10.4% between 1989 and 2013. DEWA achieved a rise in the rate of efficiency of electricity production from 2.52 % in 2007 to 26.9 % in 2013. Customer Minutes Lost dropped from 20.62 minutes to 5.62 between 2008 and 2013, compared to an average customer minutes lost in leading countries, which were over 15 minutes per year.
