Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) is planning to triple its power generation and water desalination capacities in the next ten years. According to a statement from the Dubai Executive Council, the utility firm is planning to invest around US $15 billion (AED55 billion) between 2006 and 2015 to meet the Emirate’s expected demand. DEWA is expected to increase its electrical capacity to 13,250MW and desalination to over 2.6 million m3 per day. The demand for desalinated water grew by 13% in 2005, while electricity demand rose by 17%. A surplus of both utilities is currently available, but further demand is forecast when current construction projects complete.
