A Glimpse Through the Years
The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) was formed on 1 January, 1992, by a decree issued by His Highness Shaikh Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum to take over and merge the Dubai Electric Company and the Dubai Water Department that had been operating independently for several years until then. Both these organizations were established in 1959 through the foresight and initiative of His Highness Shaikh 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.

Dubai Electricity Company
In the year 1959, His Highness Shaikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum issued a decree to establish the Dubai Electricity Company (DEC) with the objective of generating electricity and transmitting and distributing it to consumers in Dubai. The Company set up its first office in a rented house near Al Nasr Square, Deira, and soon after started to supply electricity to its first consumer. Thus started the operations of a dynamic organization that was to play a pivotal role in spurring the growth and development of Dubai, ushering in a bright era for its people.

Dubai Water Department
In 1959, the same year that the Dubai Electricity Company was established, His Highness Shaikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, the then Ruler of Dubai, ordered the establishment of a specialized organization to carry out the project of supplying Dubai with water. This was a momentous juncture in the history of the Emirate for, with adequate supply of water and power, Dubai could now begin to confidently undertake a prudent program of modernization and establish itself as a bustling center of trade and business.

...And Today
Today, after more than three and a half 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 consumer has always been DEWA's well entrenched philosophy. Owing to this policy, the Authority has come a long way in serving the consumers and thereby making its own contributions to the economic growth of Dubai.

Today DEWA employs a workforce of about 4000 employees who constantly endeavour to see that both the quantity and quality of services provided are of the highest standards in consistency and reliability.

Thus the expansion continues in order to meet the ever growing demand for electricity and water, and keeping this in mind DEWA 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.
