Dubai: The “OWNEK” awareness initiative was started by Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) in order to save licenced contractors and consultants time and effort by having DEWA approve requests for electricity connections for the first time.
The initiative includes a series of awareness sessions and in-depth videos in Arabic and English in order to explain all the pillars, instructions, and requirements that must be taken into account when submitting applications, as well as tips and recommendations that will hasten the approval process.
Mr. Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA, remarked that, “DEWA provides all the necessary capabilities and smart services that help consultants and contractors carry out their work and conduct their transactions with ease, to enhance Dubai’s competitiveness in doing business, and transform Dubai into the smartest and happiest city in the world. We are committed to providing the tools, requirements and instructions that enable stakeholders to work within the best conditions and with the least possible effort and time, to enrich their experience, achieve their happiness, and the interest of all parties, in addition, to facilitate and accelerate the mechanism for obtaining electricity service. This is in accordance with the best international standards and practices.”
“We are committed to providing a motivational environment to build and consolidate strong and long-term relations with our partners. This ensures the prosperity of our business. This also strengthens DEWA’s position, which has become among the most distinguished entities in the world,” Mr. Al Tayer further added.
