How to register a company in the energy sector in Dubai

The prolific energy sector in the UAE and particularly in Dubai offers a wide range of businesses among which we mention the electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply. One can set up a limited liability company in order to operate such business in Dubai’s free zones. From a legal point of view, the activities of such kind of business must respect the provisions of Dubai Electricity Law. Our Dubailawyers are at your disposal with comprehensive legal support when establishing a company in the energy field.

Steps involved in opening a company in the energy sector in Dubai

As it is known, the UAE is a major player in the gas and oil sector among players worldwide. The activities of companies in the electricity and gas sector in Dubai are controlled by Dubai Electricity Law through the Ministry of Energy in the country. The supply of electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning for households in Dubai attracts foreign investors who want to operate in this flourishing sector. Because Dubai continues to expand, and many citizens decide to relocate here, entrepreneurs from abroad have focused on supply companies to serve in this domain, and moreover, they have the possibility to operate in the renewable energy sector. 

An LLC in Dubai is the proper business form through which an electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning company can work. We mention that a limited liability company can be established in Dubai’s free zones for 100% ownership. One must bear in mind that special licenses and permits are mandatory to activate in this field and those are:

• the electrical license for contractors and consultants;

• the utility license for consultants;

• the trade license for the company.
