The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has signed partnerships with three startups to work with them in the 4th Dubai Future Accelerators Program.
The program, organized by the Dubai Future Foundation under the theme of “One Team Co-Creating the Future” aims to strengthen the UAE’s position and enhance its role as a leading hub in the region. In addition, this comes as part of their vision to make UAE’s a platform to test solutions and technologies that are going to benefit society.
But what’s with the MoU’s signed by DEWA? The three startups were selected whereby the MoUs aim to strengthen cooperation to find innovative solutions in Artifical Intelligence (AI), electrical load control and the Internet of Things (IoT). Furthermore, the MoUs aim to transform the DEWA office at the Dubai Future Accelerators premises in Emirates Towers into a smart office based on IoT, and test the two self-cleaning devices for solar power panels.
