    EWEC drives the planning, forecasting, purchase and supply of water and electricity in Abu Dhabi and beyond. EWEC performs its role as the sole procurer of water and electricity from independent producers, ensuring the short and long-term balancing of bulk supply and demand for distribution companies. EWEC is part of ADQ, one of the region’s largest holding companies with a broad portfolio of major enterprises spanning key sectors of Abu Dhabi’s diversified economy.

    Charged with leading the change in the energy sector, EWEC is responsible for securing appropriate generating capacity and ensuring economic value reaches all stakeholders. The company achieves this through careful forecasting and planning that informs the short and long-term balancing of supply and demand.

  • What steps are your company taking to reduce carbon emissions?

    EWEC’s commitment to reducing carbon emissions falls in line with the UAE Energy Strategy 2050, which has set a number of objectives. These strategic goals include deriving 50 per cent of the country’s total energy mix from clean and renewable sources. Overall, the carbon footprint of power generation will be cut by 70 per cent by 2050 as part of the strategy, while consumption efficiency is set to increase by 40 per cent among individuals and companies.

    Sustainability flows throughout EWEC’s mission. It animates strategic priorities, including securing the economic supply of water and electricity, championing change in the energy sector and enabling the sustainability priorities in UAE Vision 2021, UAE Water Security Strategy 2036 and UAE Energy Strategy 2050.

    In April 2021, our Statement of Future Capacity Requirements Summary Report for Abu Dhabi’s future water and electricity production forecasted a significant 50 percent reduction in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from a shift towards more sustainable water and electricity production by 2025.
