Renewed collaboration to install 250,000 additional smart meters across Dubai
 
 
Dubai, UAE, 23 October 2019:    Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) renewed its collaboration with Honeywell to install 250,000 additional smart meters across Dubai, bringing the total number of Honeywell smart meters installed as part of ‘Smart Applications via Smart Grid and Meters' initiative to approximately 1 million.
 
The project aims to provide smart infrastructure for electricity transmission and distribution networks, to ensure the speed of response to immediately reconnect in the event of any disruption; rationalize consumption via smart meters; and to monitor the details of consumption accurately, instantly and at any time, to enhance convenience and satisfaction levels of all citizens and residents, thereby bringing them happiness and supporting the sustainability of resources. Smart grids come with advanced features such as automatic decision-making capabilities and interoperability across the electricity network. 
 
Smart meters are the main features of DEWA's ‘Smart Applications via Smart Grid and Meters' initiative, which aims to develop an advanced infrastructure capable of supporting Dubai's efforts to become the smartest and happiest city in the world. The strategy includes several programs aimed at improving energy management through investments in projects worth up to AED 7 billion, which are scheduled to be completed in the short, medium and long terms until 2035.
The most outstanding feature of Honeywell smart meters is flexibility and adaptability to various telecommunication technologies, whether wired or wireless, such as GPRS, RF, G3 PLC, and LPWAN among others. Honeywell smart meters will use the wireless module.
 
“We are delighted to partner with DEWA again to expand the smart metering project. Honeywell smart meters form the basis of smart energy initiatives in Dubai. We have been working with DEWA for many years to set new standards and develop a new approach to energy use in Dubai,” said Norm Gilsdorf, President of Honeywell, High Growth Regions, Middle East, and Russia.
 
“Our smart solutions enable DEWA to create a smarter power grid, providing smart energy management solutions that drive energy efficiency, operational improvements, and cost savings for DEWA. It will also provide consumers with data to help them understand their usage and energy consumption patterns. Our main objective and commitment are to support DEWA in the achievement of the government's sustainability goals and promoting smarter use of electricity throughout Dubai,” he added.
 
DEWA's agreement with Honeywell comes on the sidelines of the 21st Water, Energy, Technology and Environment Exhibition (WETEX 2019), organized by DEWA under the directives of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai; and under the patronage of HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, Minister of Finance and President of DEWA, at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre from 21-23 October. DEWA is organising the exhibition in conjunction with the 4th Dubai Solar Show. 2,350 exhibitors from 55 countries will participate in the 21st WETEX, spread over an area of 85,000 square metres.
