Emirates Water and Electricity Company (EWEC) is the sole procurer of water and power within the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and beyond, with the mandate to ensure the supply of water and power to consumers. EWEC is part of ADQ, one of the region’s largest holding companies with a diverse portfolio of major enterprises spanning key sectors of Abu Dhabi’s non-oil economy. EWEC was formed in November 2018, succeeding the Abu Dhabi Water and Electricity Company (ADWEC).
To support UAE demand for water and electricity, we procure supply from 16 plants across the UAE (12 current and four in the near future), including conventional power plants as well as two solar power plants, one of which is the largest single-site solar power plant in the world.
The 2 gigawatts 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.
