“I received a text message from DEWA that alerted us that our water consumption is 70% higher than our regular use. Upon investigating, my husband found that one of the bathrooms had a leakage that we generally would not have been able to find out.” A resident from Dubai mentioned in our conversation about the consumption assessment tool.
She also mentioned that it not only saved the cost of the utility for us but also helped us conserve the natural resources by taking timely actions.
The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) launched a consumption assessment tool recently and it has saved a considerable amount of utility bills and energy.
But, how to use it, and what purpose does it serve?
Let’s learn what a consumption assessment tool by DEWA is, what features you get, and how to use the tool to participate in the smart living initiative by the government.
DEWA launched the consumption assessment tool for the residents to quickly analyze the consumption patterns and plan actions on electricity and water conservation. Once you complete the assessment, you receive a detailed report on your consumption and tips to improve water and electricity wastage.
The consumption assessment tool is created by DEWA to make your home energy-efficient and more sustainable.
As a part of the Smart Living Programme and to achieve sustainable development, DEWA supports the visions of the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 and the Dubai Net Zero Emissions Strategy 2050, aiming to make Dubai an international center of clean energy and green economy.
Let’s now understand what you can do with the consumption assessment tool by DEWA.
With a vision to become an internationally sustainable organization, DEWA has used disruptive technologies to offer smart and innovative services. Let’s see through this tool what it has to provide you with:
The tool enables you to review your electricity and water consumption through daily or monthly reports. It gives a smart dashboard through which you can check your consumption and see the consistency of the usage throughout the year.
It also allows you to compare your consumption with the homes similar and near your house. This feature will help you analyze how much more you consume and how you can improve your consumption by efficiently conserving water and electricity.
The tool also provides exclusive offers to buy and install energy-saving devices under the Smart Living Programme.
When you have gone on a vacation, or away from your home for any reason, you can turn the ‘Away Mode’ on and get insights into your consumption when you are not at home.
Your consumption is monitored daily by the tool, and it will send a high-water usage alert when it exceeds a certain threshold, as may be decided by DEWA. This feature prevents enormous water wastage by detecting the water leakage early.
You can auto-schedule the technicians’ visits through this tool, giving you real-time updates.
The smart channels of this tool also allow you to use the ‘call back’ feature to ask DEWA agents to call you back.
Hence, these features are implemented to offer you the convenience to use and make the most out of the tool to save water and electricity.
Now, let’s understand how you can enable these features and start using them.
All it takes to use this tool is just three simple steps:
Once you enable this tool from your DEWA account, you will continue receiving regular reports about your water and electricity consumption with customized tips on efficient usage of the resources.
Thus, use the consumption assessment tool and play your part in making Dubai the most brilliant city by adopting a sustainable lifestyle.
