UAE Initiatives to Promote Energy Efficiency

Dubai has launched a programme, Dubai Integrated Energy Strategy, to reduce energy requirement by 30% by 2030.

This is a demand side optimisation measure that includes eight pillars of strategic importance in managing the energy demand, with retrofitting of existing buildings, Energy-efficient street Lighting and Building regulations being few of them. The Dubai Government is also the first in the region to formalise energy management through a demand side management (DSM) strategy that resulted in the formation of the Etihad Master ESCO, which is focusing extensively on many areas for energy efficiency and CO2 reduction.

Abu Dhabi Environment Vision 2030 policy is an integral part of the economic vision that has imperatives to be delivered across the following sectors:

Energy and Utilities; Industry; Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries; Buildings and Infrastructure; Transportation; Public Realm Amenities and Forestry; Environment; and Waste Management.

In the context of Buildings, Estidama in Abu Dhabi regulates the design, construction, and operation of buildings through phased approvals. Estidama also uses an assessment scale called the “Pearl Rating System”, for driving and determining sustainable development by reducing building’s load from HVAC systems and lighting.
