Dubai, UAE: Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has announced winning three Golden Globe Tigers Awards in Sustainability Leadership for the Best Renewable Resources – Energy, Best Renewable Resources – Green Building and Best Renewable Resources – Sustainable Transport, for the Green Charger initiative. The awards, which were received in a special ceremony in Malaysia, underline the utility’s intensive efforts to protect natural resources, and achieve sustainable development across all areas, said the announcement.

“Winning three awards at the Golden Globe Tigers Awards 2016 emphasises our success and commitment to the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai,Commenting on winning the awards,” said H.E. Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA. “It also reflects our commitment to the UAE Vision 2021, and the Dubai Plan 2021, which have clear roadmaps with ambitious initiatives and development projects that combine economic development with the sustainability of energy and a clean, healthy, and safe environment.”

Winning the awards, he added, helps to make Dubai a “smart, integrated, and sustainable city that achieves sustainability of resources and provides a clean, healthy, and sustainable environment”.

“In line with the Smart Dubai initiative launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, to transform Dubai into the smartest city in the world,” Al Tayer said, DEWA has launched three smart initiatives, which include Shams Dubai, to connect solar energy to buildings, Smart Applications through smart meters and grids, and the Green Charger to establish the infrastructure and build electric vehicle charging stations.

The construction of the Sustainable Building in Al Quoz, which reportedly uses 66% less energy and 48% less water than other buildings, supports the Green Economy for Sustainable Development initiative launched by Sheikh Mohammed to build a Green Economy and drive sustainable development, said Al Tayer.

He added, “This award reflects our aspirations and ongoing efforts to be in the lead by implementing the best international standards across all of our projects.”
