UAE: EtihadWE unveils the new tariff structure for industrial growth

Omar Abbas - | Technology

The challenge for the Northern Emirates region is to strike a balance between sustainable energy usage and industrial growth.

Etihad Water and Electricity (EtihadWE) has responded to this challenge by introducing a revised rate system designed to maximize energy consumption and foster economic growth.

Customers in the industrial and technological sectors in the Northern Emirates frequently faced financial difficulties as a result of the current pricing system. Exorbitant energy costs prevented established industries from expanding and turned off potential investors. Acknowledging these difficulties, EtihadWE decided to review its tariff structure in order to better meet the industrial demands of the area. A tiered pricing structure based on industrial consumers' consumption habits forms the basis of the new tariff structure. EtihadWE seeks to balance meeting the energy needs of large-scale enterprises with encouraging efficiency by providing lower prices for larger amounts of energy usage.

Financial Incentives for Industrial Consumers

Businesses that use more energy than 10,000 megawatt-hours per month can save money on energy bills under the new tariff system. Rates for enterprises operating in the region start at 32 fils per kilowatt-hour and gradually drop to 26 fils per kilowatt-hour. This results in significant savings. The effort that EtihadWE and government agencies, including the Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology and the Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure, have put into developing the new tariff structure is particularly noteworthy. A common goal of promoting economic expansion and drawing capital to the Northern Emirates is reflected in this collaboration.

The importance of the updated price structure in promoting industrial expansion was underlined by Yousef Ahmed Al Ali, CEO of EtihadWE. EtihadWE seeks to contribute to the creation of jobs and economic growth in the area by providing competitive energy tariffs that both support and encourage the construction of new industrial operations and current ones. A more advantageous business climate is anticipated in the Northern Emirates with a reduction in the value of electricity consumption charges. Because the region is more appealing to both domestic and foreign investors looking for growth prospects, lower operating costs boost industry competitiveness.

Stimulating Economic Development

The new tariff structure's implementation is consistent with EtihadWE's overarching goal of advancing sustainable economic development. EtihadWE aims to reduce its environmental impact while promoting industrial growth and innovation through energy pricing optimization and ethical consumption practices.

In the Northern Emirates, the implementation of the updated energy consumption tariff system is a major step toward prosperity and sustainable growth. EtihadWE seeks to facilitate economic growth and employment creation in the area while meeting the energy demands of industry through cooperative partnerships and strategic initiatives. The Northern Emirates, through their embrace of innovation and sustainability, will become a dynamic center for investment and industrial growth in the years to come.
