SDME has been organised by the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy and Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) as part of an international competition launched by the US Department of Energy, according to a press release.

Pounentis further added, "Supporting initiatives with such a monumental importance to the youth, education and sustainability allows us to catalyse change and drive a tangible impact.”

“Our support of Team Tawazun, which is participating in the ‘Olympics of Sustainable Buildings,’ underlines our focus on encouraging young talents to innovate and create solutions that add value to our industry and future,” he added

Through SDME’s second edition, Azizi Developments supports the Manipal Academy of Higher Education Dubai Campus for its Tawazun project in line with Expo 2020’s theme ‘Connecting Minds. Creating the Future’.
