Over two million smart metres installed says DEWA

In the first phase, which was completed in 2016, the utility firm installed approximately 200,000 smart metres

The number of smart metres in Dubai has significantly increased from 200,000 in the first phase (completed in 2016) to approximately 2.1mn at present, Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has stated.

Smart metres enable customers to benefit from the Smart Living initiative launched by DEWA, which helps them monitor their consumption independently, the statement from DEWA noted.

In early December 2022, the utility firm said it had completed 93% of fourth phase of its H-Station and, later in the month, it said it began construction of $12.5m Hatta Sustainable Waterfalls project.

“With the directives of the wise leadership, DEWA is working to provide an advanced infrastructure to manage facilities and services through smart and interconnected systems that use technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), block chain, and the Internet of Things (IoT), among others,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA.

Through smart metres customers can log onto their DEWA accounts through the website or smart app, and view their dashboard to monitor their consumption, and learn about tariff slabs in the residential sector. Customers can also benefit from the initiative by comparing their consumption with similar homes, to help them manage their consumption, DEWA noted.

Al Tayer remarked, “Smart metres provide many advantages for customers to control their consumption proactively and digitally without contacting DEWA, in addition to transforming Dubai into the smartest and happiest city in the world.”

In early January 2023, Digital DEWA subsidiary – Moro Hub – in association with EY launched its first AI driven managed services for Operation Technology (OT) in its Cyber Defense Centre (CDC) in the UAE.
