More than 400,000 customers enrolled in DEWA’s ‘My Sustainable Living Programme’

Al Tayer 14 AugDubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has announced that more than 400,000 residential customers are enrolled in the ‘My Sustainable Living Programme’ since its launch in October 2018 and until the end of July 2020

The ‘My Sustainable Living Programme’ is part of the Smart Living initiative to raise awareness and help customers manage their high-usage of electricity and water, without the need to contact DEWA. This enhances their experience and reduces demand on the ‘Verification of Electricity/Water Consumption’ service.

“We work in line with the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to achieve sustainable development in all aspects, and the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050, to make Dubai the city with the lowest carbon footprint in the world by 2050. We strive to enhance consumer behaviour, in line with the Demand Side Management Strategy to reduce the demand for electricity and water by 30 per cent in 2030,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, managing director and CEO of DEWA.

“The large turnout indicates the high level of awareness in society on achieving sustainable development and protecting the environment. This encourages us to launch more innovative initiatives to encourage stakeholders to be responsible and motivate positive competitiveness among them to reduce consumption and their carbon footprint,” added Al Tayer.

The programme has several main features, including a comparison dashboard of similar homes in the region, and other similar highly efficient homes, providing customers with a monthly consumption report, and awareness tips. DEWA interacts with its users through its website, smart app, email and text messages.
