Energy efficiency projects showcased at Adipec
Abu Dhabi, November 11, 2013
Abu Dhabi’s Regulation and Supervision Bureau is showcasing some of its energy efficiency projects at the ongoing Adipec.
Rashed Hamad Al Rashdi, deputy director general, said: “Electricity conservation is integral to the emirate’s long-term energy strategy. We currently have a number of ‘live’ initiatives that are producing real, tangible, local data. Such projects help design viable solutions and shape the emirate’s future energy roadmap.”
The bureau’s energy efficiency projects being showcased will highlight ways to a smarter use of electricity. These include the time-of-day trial, demand side management pilot project and the successful ‘Turn it off’ summer campaign, he said.
Ramiz Alaileh, the bureau's powerwise manager, said: “Carrying out these projects forms an essential step in studying ways to really make a difference and initial results are very promising. We look forward to analysing the final data, but at this point it is clear that the little decisions we make every day, whether at home or at work collectively can have a significant impact on the emirate’s overall management of resources, and its future growth and prosperity.”
“Events like Adipec help us convey the right message to the residents of Abu Dhabi about their use of electricity, as we all have a role to play in preserving our precious resources for generations to come.”
The event is highlighting the need for resource diversification and demand for new resources, such as energy. It is also providing a platform for the bureau to network with sector stakeholders worldwide with a view to future partnerships. - TradeArabia News Service
