About National Energy and Water Research Center

The National Energy and Water Research Center (NEWRC) was established in 1998 along with ADWEA; to lead our efforts in securing water and energy sustainably and economically for years to come. NEWRC is a governmental funded research, development, and deployment (RD&D) center. NEWRC assists with full range of activities from research and development to technology demonstration, and is responsible for integrating the expertise and outlook of industry, academia and ADWEA.

Focusing on researchToday's changing world is rich with new technologies, evolving cultural needs and a keen interest in the environment. As a successful and performance-driven organization, ADWEA uses cutting-edge research as the foundation of everything we do.
Preparing for today and tomorrowToday, the average person in Abu Dhabi consumes 550L of water a day, according to the EAD. All of that water must be properly desalinated before it reaches your home, we make sure that happens. Tomorrow, one thing will remain constant: the people of Abu Dhabi will still need clean water and reliable power. The development of renewable energy and alternative techniques means ADWEA can offer more efficient and environmentally safe power for you, your business and your family - now and in the future.
Dedicated to sustainability and efficiencyWater and electricity are the backbone of progress. The infrastructure we've created ensures power and water are available at all times to your family and business. We're also working hard to deepen the conversation about conservation and sustainability. We're inviting your family and your business into the dialogue.
Expanding our breadth and depthBecause we value knowledge and transparency, ADWEA shares our methods and research with others. Sharing our expertise has earned us a position of leadership and influence not only in Abu Dhabi but also regionally and internationally, particularly in terms of power generation and sustainability. Our proven technical and cost-effective solutions help Abu Dhabi and other global companies help preserve the environment.
