Etihad ES working on $109m retrofit projects

DUBAI, December 4, 2018

Etihad Energy Services Company (Etihad ES), a leading energy service company, is gearing up to implement Dh400 million ($109 million) worth of projects, branching out beyond building retrofits into industrial retrofits and solar projects.

The company has already set an ambitious target to retrofit 30,000 buildings by 2030, said a top official on the sidelines of the 3rd Annual Dubai Green Hotel Innovation Conference held in Dubai, UAE, recently.

Etihad ES hosted and strategically endorsed the industry-focused conference which was organized by ACM.
The event brought leading experts, policy and decision makers, and key stakeholders under one roof where participants received updates on technological innovations and the latest best practices being implemented to boost the local hotel sector’s environmental sustainability strategies, while improving operational costs and enhancing profitability.      

"Over the years, the hospitality industry in Dubai has grown exponentially. We cannot turn a blind eye on the environmental impact of hotels, especially in terms of their natural resource usage and energy consumption," remarked Ali Al Jassim, the CEO of Etihad ES.

"The hospitality industry’s energy costs in Dubai account for a significant portion of total energy consumption," he stated.

"So, in order to cut its energy demand and consequently contribute to Dubai’s 30 per cent energy demand reduction target by 2030 - we encourage all key stakeholders to take action that has long-term positive impact," he added.
An estimated 700 hotels are currently operating in Dubai, with more hotels expected to open before 2020.

The government strategically plan for effective and efficient measures to be put in place to make the hotel industry more sustainable.-TradeArabia News Service
