Imdaad steps up drive to cut energy use
Dubai, July 11, 2011
Imdaad, a leading provider of facilities management solutions in the UAE, is taking more aggressive steps to adopt cutting-edge technology solutions as part of efforts to help clients reduce energy consumption.
Imdaad has pointed out that energy generally accounts for the largest controllable operating cost in any facility, noting a study by Energy Star showing that energy savings of up to 30 per cent are possible even through no and low-cost strategies.
Imdaad disclosed that energy-efficient and cost-effective facilities management solutions are increasingly becoming the norm as customers have become more value-oriented and price-conscious in light of the recent global financial downturn.
The company further noted that the introduction of more advanced energy-saving tools and technologies is a logical step forward towards sustaining the growing adoption of facilities management in the UAE and across the Middle East region.
“It has been our strategy to constantly identify the latest technological advances in the area of energy management knowing fully well that we have greater flexibility to control energy-related operating expenditure,” said Jamal Abdullah Lootah, CEO of Imdaad.
“Studies and practical examples have clearly shown that energy savings can help significantly reduce the management and maintenance costs of facilities.”
“We are therefore aggressively investing to adopt the latest energy-saving technologies as part of our ongoing efforts to convince more property owners and business organizations to take advantage of our fully integrated facilities management services,” he added.
Imdaad currently offers power monitoring and savings services as part of its integrated facilities management solutions, a statement said.
The energy monitoring service is an interactive utilities monitoring system that helps businesses determine areas where they can cut back on water, gas and electricity consumption, ultimately reducing the facility’s carbon footprint, it added. – TradeArabia News Service
