Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower), the world’s largest district cooling services provider, highlighted the importance of innovation in energy-efficiency and sustainable development, in connection with the UAE Innovation Month. The UAE Innovation Month is observed from 1st to 28th February 2018 under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, under the slogan ‘Innovation starts with you’.

UAE Innovation Month is a national initiative which involves community members and state institutions, to establish the UAE on the global map as an important hub for creativity and innovation. This supports the UAE Vision 2021, which aims to foster a culture of innovation, and the National Innovation Strategy, which aims to make the UAE one of the most innovative countries in the world over the next seven years.

“The UAE is witnessing a unique international attention that has been initiated by our wise leadership, on the strong faith in the capabilities of the country’s human resources, and its role in shaping the future. The UAE Innovation Month is an opportunity to highlight the achievements of the UAE to the world. It is also an opportunity to encourage state institutions to review their innovations. Being innovative is part of the lifestyle of UAE citizens and residents, and at Empower we continue to instill a culture of innovation among our employees in all aspects of daily work” said Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO of Empower.

“We are proud of our leadership, which has provided us with an environment that encourages innovation and creativity.
