EtihadWE CEO Confirms a 7% Increase in Electricity Demand in 2023

Engineer Yousif Ahmed Al Ali, CEO of Etihad Water and Electricity (EtihadWE) announced that the average increase in electricity demand in 2023 reached approximately 7% compared to the previous year. Umm Al Quwain led with a 19% increase, followed by Ajman at 8%, the Central Region at 5%, Dibba Al Fujairah at 4%, Ras Al Khaimah at 3%, and finally Fujairah closely behind.

The CEO emphasized that EtihadWE's efforts in the electric power sector are focused on supporting the infrastructure to ensure service sustainability while adopting a strategic approach that prioritizes efficiency standards, environmental protection, and achieving climate neutrality goals—core pillars of the UAE's Energy Strategy 2050. He highlighted the inauguration of two main substations last year: Al-Hamidiya Substation in Ajman and Sharisha Substation in Ras Al Khaimah, along with three subsidiary stations, including Adhen 3, Sih Al Burairat, and Julphar in Ras Al Khaimah. These initiatives consider several factors, including annual growth rates and the rising demand for electric power across residential, agricultural, industrial, and commercial sectors within the served areas.

Engineer Al Ali also mentioned that the company operates 157 electric stations in the Northern Emirates, comprising 35 main and 122 subsidiary stations, with the total length of transmission and distribution lines reaching approximately 15,000 kilometres by the end of last year.
