Dubai, UAE, 28 September 2021: The Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit (GMIS) today announced a partnership with Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) that will promote the adoption of advanced technologies to generate greater progress towards energy efficiency and accelerate sustainable energy usage in the industrial sector.  
 
Joining the Summit as a Foundation Partner, DEWA will share its expertise in implementing Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Cloud Computing and the Internet of Things to drive the transition to a low-carbon future while contributing to sustainable and inclusive economic development in the United Arab Emirates and globally. 
 
Through this partnership, DEWA and GMIS will collaborate to promote the use of advanced energy-saving innovations, including smart applications and meters, and enable greater collaboration between utility providers and industrial enterprises to eliminate energy wastage. 
“DEWA’s partnership with the Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit is a crucial step in strengthening global and regional commitments by leveraging the latest technologies, policies and opportunities to build a more sustainable future for all, and to mitigate climate change,” said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority.
 
“DEWA works in line with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to achieve the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050, which aims to provide 75% of Dubai’s total power capacity from clean energy sources by 2050. DEWA has launched several mega projects such as the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, the largest single-site solar park in the world based on the Independent Power Producer (IPP) model, with a planned production capacity of 5,000 MW by 2030. Clean energy will also come from the Green Hydrogen project and the Hydroelectric Power Station in Hatta. To support the Dubai 10X initiative, launched by His Highness, which aims to making Dubai a global leader that is 10 years ahead of all other cities, we launched Digital DEWA, our digital arm, to reshape the concept of utilities and contribute to building a digital future for Dubai and achieving government strategies. DEWA adopts innovation, the latest Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies, AI and Big Data to develop its services according to the highest standards of efficiency, effectiveness, and sustainability. DEWA also helps customers increase the efficiency of their electricity and water consumption. This reduces our carbon footprint and helps achieve the Demand Side Management Strategy to reduce 30% of electricity and water demand by 2030,” added Al Tayer, who will speak at #GMIS2021.
 
 Using the latest technologies, DEWA launched the Smart Living initiative in 2020. The initiative empowers customers to proactively monitor their electricity and water use to make smart conservation decisions independently.  The initiative has achieved significant success with over 900,000 customers benefitting from the service since its launch in July 2020 to 30 April 2021.
 
Sustainability and energy efficiency are at the heart of #GMIS2021, which will hold panel sessions, presentations, interactive workshops and networking events on a wide-range of topics, including the future of renewable energy, digital mobility at work, women in leadership, the importance of quantum machine learning and navigating health and safety in a cyber-physical environment. 
 
Badr Al-Olama, Head of the GMIS Organising Committee, said: “Since its inception, DEWA has laid out a clear vision to adopt disruptive technologies and enable collaboration to drive the transition towards clean and alternative energy sources. GMIS is proud to partner with DEWA, and through this partnership we will strengthen our shared commitment to capitalise on emerging technologies to promote long-term, inclusive economic progress and support the advancement of Sustainable Development Goals.”
 
Scheduled to be held at EXPO’s Dubai Exhibition Centre from November 22-27, the fourth edition of the Summit (#GMIS2021) will host leaders from governments and some of the largest local and global organisations to discuss and debate how data, connectivity and advanced technologies are shaping the future of manufacturing, sustainable energy production, supply chain management, and green manufacturing. 
 
Under the theme ‘Rewiring Societies: Repurposing Digitalisation for Prosperity’, #GMIS2021 will explore the importance of data intelligence and connectivity and the evolving forms of interaction between and among humans and machines in the context of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. 
The Summit will hold three Global Panorama Sessions examining the challenges and opportunities facing European and North American manufacturing and their drive toward ‘green’ investments, the role of digital connectivity to optimise integration in Latin America and Southeast Asia and the role that digital technologies will play to drive prosperity in Africa and the Middle East.
