DUBAI, May 21, 2016

Etihad Energy Service Company (Etihad Esco) said it has partnered with Dubai Land Department to explore new opportunities and identify standards of energy conservation, to achieve financial savings and energy efficiency across all its operations.

Etihad Esco is a leading project launched by Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) to make the emirate a leading example of energy efficiency for the region and the world.

As an energy service company, it enables the energy performance contracting market in Dubai by developing 'green' projects targeting more than 30,000 buildings.

This supports the UAE Vision 2021, and the Dubai Plan 2021 to achieve the emirates' sustainable development, stated Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, the vice-chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy and chairman of Etihad Esco, after signing the memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Sultan Butti Bin Mejren, the director general of Dubai Land Department.

It also supports the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050, to establish its position as a global hub for clean energy and energy efficiency, stated Al Tayer.

"The MoU defines the framework and develop cooperation between the two sides, enabling Etihad Esco to explore opportunities to achieve the highest levels of efficiency to reduce energy use and lower costs across all of Dubai Land Department’s operations," he added.

According to Al Tayer, Etihad Esco will develop a portfolio of solutions and opportunities to reduce energy use in all the projects approved by Dubai Land Department in relation to energy efficiency in Dubai.

“The project with Dubai Land Department is one of the applications of the Demand Side Management strategy to reduce energy demand by 30 per cent by 2030. The strategy features nine programmes to manage energy demand. These include green building regulations, retrofitting existing buildings, district cooling, wastewater reuse, laws and standards to raise efficiency, energy-efficient streetlighting, and Shams Dubai,” he added.

Bin Mejren said the partnership with Etihad Esco reflects its commitment to excellence in the operations.

The effective solutions offered by this partnership will ensure that we meet these objectives, making us a role model for our customers for adopting and applying the highest green building standards," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
