Energy Efficiency Description:

ADWEA, the largest utility in the UAE, has largely completed roll-out of smart meters across its distribution zone of 680,000 consumer points, with an extensive wireless mesh linking into a fibre optic system. This provides the capability to capture and analyse consumption data at time intervals as low as every 15 minutes and to use data for baselining the effectiveness of new demand-side-management initiatives.

DEWA, Dubai’s utility, has launched a 10,000 smart meter pilot program.
