DEWA and EDF sign renewables pact

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) French energy giant EDF have signed an agreement to work together on a range of initiatives including energy storage and renewables.

Other areas of collaboration will include system integration, distributed energy resources, demand response, and electric vehicle charging stations.

The two companies signed a Memorandum of Understanding at the World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi last week.

A key focus of the agreement will be the deployment of all the focus areas in the emirate of Dubai, which has a target to increase its volume of clean energy in its power mix to 7 per cent by 2020, 25 per cent by 2030 and 75 per cent by 2050.

DEWA chief executive Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer said: “Establishing a strategic partnership with a leading organisation such as EDF supports DEWA’s commitment to adopting the latest technological innovations and benefiting from international best practices.”
