ABU DHABI: The UAE’s clean energy powerhouse Masdar and Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) have announced the signing of a three-year partnership agreement to sponsor the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW) and DEWA’s annual Water, Energy, Technology, and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) and Dubai Solar Show.


The agreement was signed at ADSW 2023 by Saeed Mohammed al Tayer, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of DEWA and Mohamed Jameel al Ramahi, Chief Executive Officer of Masdar.


As per the agreement, DEWA will be the ADSW Opening Ceremony Associate Partner from 2023 to 2025, while Masdar will be the WETEX Jubilee Sponsor for the same period.


Saeed Mohammed al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA, said, “DEWA and Masdar have a strategic partnership that supports the vision of the wise leadership for a sustainable future in the UAE. We are pleased to sign this partnership agreement for DEWA to sponsor the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW) and Masdar to sponsor the Water, Energy, Technology, and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) and Dubai Solar Show. This supports our common vision to enhance the pioneering position of the UAE in investing in renewable and clean energy.”


Mohamed Jameel al Ramahi, Chief Executive Officer of Masdar, said, “We are pleased to enter into this partnership that will help advance our shared goals for global collaboration for sustainability. Masdar has long recognised the value of WETEX, which stands alongside Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week as a major event on the global sustainability calendar and demonstrates the commitment of the UAE leadership to accelerating the energy transition. Through platforms such as WETEX and ADSW, the UAE is driving the global sustainability agenda and taking a leading role in climate action. We look forward to continuing to enjoy a productive partnership with DEWA on future events.”


Established in 2008 by Masdar, one of the world’s fastest-growing clean energy companies, and hosted every January, ADSW is the first major sustainability gathering of a critical year for the UAE for climate action.


DEWA organises WETEX and Dubai Solar Show annually to showcase technological advancements and explore trends in energy, water conservation, the preservation of natural resources, and building a sustainable environment.


The partnership agreement will ensure greater alignment between the two key UAE platforms, in line with the UAE’s long-term sustainability vision and net-zero objectives, and ahead of the 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28), taking place in the UAE from November 30 to December 12.
