Originally proposed by Dr. Harold Hyunsuk Oh, the first World Energy Day was commemorated on October 22, 2012 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

A large number of heads of states, ministers, and country delegations from 89 United Nations member states adopted The Dubai Declaration - Energy for All, and unanimously supported the World Energy Day Proclamation. The aim of World Energy Day is to send positive signal worldwide demonstrating the importance of choices society makes regarding energy policy, energy production, energy use, and the environment.

World Energy Day has been stated by H.E. Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Vice Chairman of the Supreme Council of Energy and MD and CEO of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, as playing a pivotal role in the conservation of natural resources around the world.

World Energy Day is celebrated internationally. H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai, in addition to representatives from over 54 countries under the United Nations, Arab League, and African Union are stated as planning to celebrate World Energy Day 2013.

World Energy Day aims to support the policies that increase energy efficiency across various sectors. This includes increasing efficiency of transportation networks, industrial processes, buildings, and the electricity grid. It also aims to increase energy efficiency and sustainability in urban and regional planning. DEWA has been supporting the sustainable development of Dubai through initiatives and projects that support the energy infrastructure of the emirate, works to lower electricity and water consumption below world averages.
