WETEX is organised by Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA, in line with Dubai’s vision to build a sustainable future for the Emirate.

The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) was formed on 1 January, 1992, by a decree issued by the late Sheikh Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum to take over and merge the Dubai Electricity Company and the Dubai Water Department that had been operating independently for several years until then. Both these organisations were established in 1959 through the foresight and initiative of His Highness Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, the late Ruler of Dubai, as government-supported bodies with the objective of making available to the people of Dubai an adequate and reliable supply of electricity and water.

Today, after five decades, DEWA is an inspiring success story known for its efficiency and reliability in every facet of its operations. Constant planning and forecasting to meet the growing demands of the customer has always been DEWA's well entrenched philosophy. Owing to this policy, DEWA has come a long way in serving the customers and thereby making its own contributions to the economic growth of Dubai.

Today DEWA employees a workforce more than 10,000 employees who constantly endeavor to see that both the quantity and quality of services provided are of the highest standards in consistency and reliability.

DEWA’s expansion continues to meet the ever growing demand for electricity and water and continues to maintain its corporate structure and functioning in the most professional and advanced ways to ensure its continued success in the years to come.
