    DEWA automates power grid management and troubleshooting

    June 28, 2022 - Abdul Rawuf


      The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has launched a system that could fix power grid issues without human intervention.

      The Automatic Smart Grid Restoration (ASGR) system would allow the utility provider to remotely locate faults in its power network - to isolate them, and automatically restore their service.

      "The Smart Grid is an integral part of DEWA's strategy to develop state-of-the-art infrastructure for managing facilities and services using disruptive technologies and Fourth Industrial Revolution applications," CEO Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer said.

      The move is part of the firm's strategy to adopt latest technologies in power generation, in which it has allotted AED 7 billion in investments.

      "DEWA's adoption of the latest international technologies in power generation, transmission and distribution, has made it one of the best utilities worldwide. In 2021, DEWA achieved a new world record in electricity Customer Minutes Lost (CML) per year," the CEO said.

      Dubai recorded 1.43 CML, compared to around 15 minutes by major utility companies in Europe, Al Tayer noted.

      DEWA's investments in electricity transmission projects from 2021 to 2024 have reached AED 10 billion.
