Dubai, UAE: Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) announced that Sharjah Sustainable City is one of the leading environmental projects participating in the 21st Water, Energy, Technology and Environment Exhibition (WETEX 2019). DEWA organises WETEX 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, from 21 - 23 October 2019 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Sharjah Sustainable City is the first project in the emirate that meets the highest standards of green economy and environmental sustainability. It is the outcome of a strategic partnership between Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) and Diamond Developers, a leading sustainable community developer in the UAE.

The AED 2 billion project is spread across 7.2 million square feet. The smart homes in the city are being built to offer up to 100 percent savings on electricity bills and 50 percent reduction on water bills. The city is powered entirely by renewable energy produced by solar panels, and smart systems will be used to reduce water consumption.

HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA and Founder and Chairman of WETEX, expressed his happiness on Sharjah Sustainable City’s participation in WETEX 2019, adding that the exhibition is an ideal platform to feature the biggest sustainable projects implemented in the UAE. It highlights the national efforts to protect the environment, and to achieve a balance between development and sustainability. This balance will help preserve the rights of future generations to live in a clean, healthy, and safe environment. It supports the UAE Centennial 2071 and the UAE Vision 2021 to make the UAE one of the best countries in the world.

“We are guided by the directives of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE; and His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai; and we support all efforts to achieve sustainable development in the UAE. We provide all the necessary requirements to enhance Dubai's efforts to build a more sustainable environment and create long-term solutions to environmental challenges. This supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 2030, and Dubai’s position as a global hub of the green economy,” said Al Tayer.

“We are delighted that Sharjah Sustainable City has joined WETEX, and we appreciate its support to WETEX as a Diamond Sponsor. We always welcome public and private entities that adopt the latest innovative solutions and best international practices. This will widen the investment horizons in clean and renewable energy, water and the environment sectors,” added Al Tayer.

“Sharjah Sustainable City is a new concept of sustainability in Sharjah. It meets the highest social, environmental and economic standards of sustainability. It will make a radical change in the concept of cities. Instead of being cities that harm the environment, they will be eco-friendly that adopt the highest environmental protection standards in every aspect. The city is powered entirely by renewable energy produced by solar panels, and has recycling plants that will recycle water and waste one hundred percent. It will be an ideal model of a sustainable city,” said Fares Saeed, CEO of Diamond Developers.

On his part, Yousef AlMutawa, CEO of Sharjah Sustainable City, reiterated that the participation of the emirate’s first and leading sustainable property project is playing a vital role in boosting Sharjah’s eco-friendly and sustainable initiatives geared towards positively influencing the lifestyles of its residents and opening new investment doors towards homeowners and businesses in the emirate. “Our participation at WETEX 2019 will focus on how Sharjah Sustainable City offers investors and homeowners a distinctive level of eco-friendly living standards through our facilities, services and benefits, redefining investments in home-ownership in the emirate of Sharjah.”

“During our participation, we will share with investors the unique benefits behind each plot as they look to invest in the city of the future, and how their investments contribute in mitigating the effects of climate change and to the sustainability of our planet and future generations. Sharjah’s green economy is expected to witness a substantial growth over the next few years, with the Sharjah Sustainable City project marking a new milestone within this economy, which continues to be one of the most attractive markets for investors and homeowners,” added AlMutawa.

The Sharjah Sustainable City in Um Fannain, aims to reduce its carbon emissions through best environmental practices, including autonomous electric vehicles for mobility and charging stations for electric vehicles. The project offers integrated and luxurious services that ensure a modern lifestyle that meets the highest standards of environmental, social and economic sustainability.
