Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower), the world’s largest district cooling services provider, announced the continuation of the '360 Solution for Metering Artificial Intelligence, AIMS 360' project to align its corporate strategy with Dubai Integrated Energy Strategy. This works to secure sustainable energy supply and enhance efficiency using advanced technologies and artificial intelligence in this sector, as it is currently witnessing high demand around the world. This supports Empower’s strategic direction to meet the growing demand for district cooling in Dubai.

Empower has adopted a clear approach to achieve its objectives. Empower's Team developed the '360 Solution for Metering Artificial Intelligence, AIMS 360’. This is a smart and innovative solution that imagines the system in 2014. After years of research and development, the team was able to fully implement the system in the beginning of year 2018, for more than 85,000 registered customers. The project is a complete remote system for collecting meter reading data, which will all be linked to the system. It aims to efficiently manage district cooling needs, at both ends of the district cooling process, in the entire region. The system is capable of round-the-clock data collection and is designed to serve customers with accurate billing requirements, for automated detection and analysis of meter errors for debugging.

This leading global system has helped reduce operating time in the billing process by providing the online meter reading requirements. Using this feature, the meter reading details are only one click away for final settlement, registration or billing disputes. Through this feature, customers need not wait for long periods to receive the required meter reading.

More than 1,000 buildings have been connected to this system. The main server is located at Empower's headquarters, which is connected to all meters located in different areas of Dubai. One of the system’s unique features is its ability to perform a dedicated and independent analysis, by accurately reading the meter in real time, thus, making the meter reading analysis easier for billing purposes and detecting errors, such as consumption waste and inappropriate use of district cooling service. This helps balance the cooling consumption to avoid an increased bill value. 

“Empower currently operates over 1.34 Million (Refrigeration Tonnes) RT, to more than 85,000 customers in Dubai. Due to the increased adoption of district cooling services in Dubai, we have developed smart and innovative solutions to achieve operational excellence and provide the best district cooling services to customers. In 2014, Empower studied the rapid growth in demand for district cooling and considered the support needed to provide services to its customers, according to the highest international standards. After this study, the '360 Solution for Metering Artificial Intelligence, AIMS 360' was launched,” said Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO of Empower.

Bin Shafar highlighted that Empower’s services rely on meter reading. Hence, Empower's Meter Team developed the '360 Solution for Metering Artificial Intelligence, AIMS 360'. AIMS 360 is a smart system designed to simplify the process of reading the meter and the application of the features of automatic analysis and early detection of the system. The new system provides improved results and accurate meter reading. 

Bin Shafar stressed that the system’s main idea is to provide early detection of energy losses to promote conservation of this vital element. 

Empower was globally recognised for its efforts when it received Honorable  mention at IDEA Innovation Awards for the '360 Solution for Metering Artificial Intelligence, AIMS 360', this was part of the 109th International District Energy Association, IDEA, Annual Conference and Tradeshow 2018, held in Vancouver, Canada, from 11 to 14 June.

Empower currently operates over 1.34 Million RT, providing environmentally responsible district cooling services to large-scale real estate developments, such as Jumeirah Group, Jumeirah Beach Residence, Dubai International Financial Centre, Business Bay, Dubai Healthcare City, Jumeirah Lake Towers, Palm Jumeirah, Discovery Gardens, Ibn Battuta Mall, Dubai Design District and International Media Production Zone, among others.
