The Barakah Nuclear Energy plant is located in the Al Dhafra region of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, approximately 53 kilometres West-Southwest of the city of Ruwais.KNOW MORE
One of the world’s largest single-site solar power plants, Noor Abu Dhabi began commercial operations in April 2019. Located at Sweihan, Abu Dhabi, it covers an area of 8 square kilometres and features 3.2 million solar panels. The plant produces approximately 1 gigawatt (AC) of power.KNOW MORE
The 1.5 gigawatts (AC) Photovoltaic (PV) Plant in Al Dhafra will be the new world’s largest single-site solar power plant, nearly double the capacity of Noor Abu Dhabi and reinforce Abu Dhabi as a leader in Solar PV.KNOW MORE
The Taweelah Reverse Osmosis (RO) facility will be the largest RO water desalination plant in the world when completed in 2022.KNOW MORE
Mirfa 2 Reverse Osmosis (M2 RO) Independent Water Project will see desalination of seawater using RO to supply up to 120 million imperial gallons of water per day.KNOW MORE
The greenfield Waste-to-Energy Independent Power Project is a collaboration with Tadweer to divert waste away from landfills.KNOW MORE
We seek to achieve alignment with the energy mix outlined by the UAE Energy Strategy 2050, launched in 2017, to increase the contribution of clean energy in the total energy mix to 50 per cent by 2050 while reducing the carbon footprint of power generation by 70 per cent.WHO WE ARE
EWEC has the key task of planning and preparing the long-term demand forecasts for water and electricity in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and beyond, using robust analytical models and in-depth analysis.
EWEC develops long-term water and electricity purchase agreements with water and electricity production companies and establishes bulk supply tariff sales agreements with distribution companies.
EWEC enables the optimisation of cost whilst also providing the increased energy security that comes from a larger and more integrated system.
