Empower achieves a total electricity savings worth AED 2.8 billion in 2017

Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower), the world’s largest district cooling services provider, has achieved total electricity savings of 1072 MW in 2017, which worth AED 2.8billion.

District Cooling saves approximately 50% of power used for cooling, compared to conventional cooling systems, according to a study conducted by the United Nations Energy Efficiency Initiatives. This makes district cooling one of the top energy-efficient and energy-saving accelerators in the world.

“Due to our responsibility as a leading government company, we are committed to the conservation of natural resources. We continuously invest and innovate in the modernisation and development of district cooling technologies, according to the best international practices. This reduces energy consumption and provide more eco-friendly and efficient district cooling services in the region. This also supports the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to reduce electricity and water consumption by 30%, and transform Dubai into a global hub for green economy, while being the city with the lowest carbon footprint, by 2050,” said Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO of Empower.

 “Empower is making a major shift in its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), by moving from being district cooling services provider, to launching and implementing CSR initiatives and programmes to rationalise and conserve the consumption of energy resources. This contributes to sustainable development, and helps reducing carbon emissions, so as to support the UAE’s efforts in becoming one of the leading countries in the world. Hence, we launched a four-month summer campaign called ‘Smile at 24 degrees'. The campaign achieved 5.4% energy savings in district cooling energy consumption,” added Bin Shafar.

Empower introduced an online calculator on its website to helps its customers monitor and plan their district cooling consumption, helping them reduce consumption and achieve significant savings.

Empower relies on sustainable and responsible operational processes that help it achieve the leadership's vision towards sustainable development and the green economy, by conserving natural resources such as energy and water, adopting efficient energy sources, and complying to the Dubai Plan 2021 and the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050.

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