Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Emirates NBD to promote cooperation in innovation and digital transformation.

This is part of DEWA’s strategy to support innovation at all levels.

The MoU was signed by HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA, and Hesham Abdulla Al Qassim, Vice Chairman and Managing Director of Emirates NBD Group, during GITEX Technology Week 2017.

The MoU enhances collaboration in supporting innovation and implementing projects that promote innovation and improve services provided to customers. It also aims to exchange knowledge and expertise in digital transformation and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

“At DEWA, we work to achieve the vision of our wise leadership by keeping pace with the Fourth Industrial Revolution, taking advantage of disruptive technologies, and supporting the Dubai 10X initiative, which sets the Government of Dubai on a mission to be a global leader that is 10 years ahead of other cities, through government innovation.
