DEWA to boost services using AI and cloud

Digital DEWA, an arm of the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), is set to accelerate its uptake of digital services in the UAE.

Digital DEWA signed a strategic partnership with Group 42 (G42), an Abu Dhabi based leading Artificial Intelligence (AI) and cloud computing company.

The partnership with Group 42 enables Digital DEWA companies – Moro Hub, InfraX and DigitalX – to introduce and implement digital and data transformation initiatives. It aims to foster new services around AI and enhance innovations across Digital DEWA’s service portfolio.

HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) was at the signing ceremony in the presence of Peng Xiao, CEO of Group 42, Digital DEWA along with officials from both entities.

As a Dubai 10X enabler, Digital DEWA ensures a leading role in the adoption of digital technologies with its four pillars; solar energy, energy storage, artificial intelligence, and digital services.

Al Tayer said: “The partnership with G42 will strengthen Digital DEWA offerings, as they can now extensively collaborate on technological endeavours, to co-create services in the clean energy and IoT, leverage AI-led solutions for government entities and enterprises across different sectors as well as explore the commercial and operational feasibility of such opportunities.”

The new services will be hosted on Moro Hub and G42 cloud infrastructure to ensure data security and superior customer experience.

The services will be managed in Moro Hub’s Smart Cities Command and Control Centre, offering 24/7 support to future clients.

At the signing ceremony, Peng Xiao said, “Our expertise in the fields of AI, big data analytics and cloud computing, combined with our specialised industrial know-how, allow us to develop progressive and holistic solutions to problems in every sector, empowering businesses to transition to digital environments effortlessly. The UAE government is committed to the digital growth and development of the nation, and we are proud to contribute to this goal in every way possible.”
