The Museum of the Future has signed a strategic partnership agreement with Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) to showcase technologies and solutions related to the future of environmental sustainability and renewable energy.

The agreement aims to pave the way for constructive research to help solve current ecological challenges and comes with the museum’s intent to provide solutions by applying technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

“At DEWA, we enhance national and global partnerships to forecast and shape the future to serve humankind. This supports the preparations for the next 50 years. The Seventh of the Principles of the 50 highlights the strategic goal to make the UAE a future global leader,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA.

“DEWA has built a solar power plant that supplies the museum with clean energy. We are glad today to strengthen our partnership with the Museum of the Future,” Al Tayer stated. “Through this partnership, we will work to select the best innovations and technologies to display in the museum, and we will work to support the government initiatives to contribute to making Dubai the smart city of the future, in addition to discovering more future technologies,” he added.

Khalfan Belhoul, CEO of the Dubai Future Foundation, said, “DEWA’s captivating experience at the museum will introduce visitors to future innovations and concepts related to the production of clean energy and the transition to a green economy.”

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, inaugurated the museum on February 22.
