Adwea to showcase power, water strategy
Abu Dhabi, July 6, 2010
Abu Dhabi Water and Electricity Authority (Adwea) will highlight its strategy for an efficient and sustainable power and water supply at an upcoming power and water show in Abu Dhabi.
Power Generation 2010 and Water Middle East 2010 will take place concurrently at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre from October 17 to 19.
“Adwea is committed to developing the long term sustainability of water and power supplies to its customers by balancing the social, environmental and economic factors that influence its business activities,” said Abdul Aziz Alshamsi, business support director of Adwea.
“Our strategic partnership with Power Generation and Water Middle East will help us to communicate our key messages about efficiency and environmental awareness, effectively to our customers in a positive and cost-efficient manner.”
“If we are to truly become a global pioneer, we must share our vision and gain support from our stakeholders,” he added.
Anita Mathews, exhibition director of Water Middle East, said: “Even though the UAE produces more than 25 million cu m of water a day through desalination, which represents 40 per cent of global production, that still only meets 80 per cent of the UAE’s demand.”
“With 16.8 per cent of the UAE’s population under the age of 15, water consumption is bound to rise considerably over the next 10 to 20 years,” she pointed out.
“It’s a similar story around the region. The Middle East has less than one per cent of the world’s renewable freshwater resources to serve five per cent of the world’s population. So projects like these are vital to ensure sustainable management and supply of the region’s natural resources,” she added. – TradeArabia News Service
