UAE CEO is 2010 'Legend of Energy'
EMS CEO Khaled Bushnaq named 2010 Legend in Energy by the AEE
UAE-based Energy Management Services International (EMS), the first company in the Middle East to provide energy management solutions, has announced that CEO Khaled Bushnaq has been named ‘2010 Legend in Energy’ by the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE).
The AEE is a global organisation of more than 13,000 certified energy engineering professionals worldwide across over 80 countries.
The announcement was made at AEE’s 33rd World Energy Engineering Congress held in December 2010 in Washington DC, US.
The ‘Legend in Energy’ title is a special mark of distinction accorded to global leaders in the field of energy engineering and management. It acknowledges the pioneering role Bushnaq has played in establishing regional benchmarks for conducting energy feasibility studies, energy surveys and strategic audits, and for comprehensively evaluating the needs of energy providers and users in the Middle East.
Bushnaq’s spearheading role in energy management has been earlier acknowledged by the AEE with the ‘Special Recognition Award’ at its 16th World Energy Congress in 1993.
EMS, under Bushnaq’s stewardship, has partnered with companies and organisations for such prestigious projects as Qatar’s FIFA showcase football stadium and the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, as well as developments led by EMAAR Properties, Nakheel and various residential and commercial towers.
Mr. Albert Thumann, Executive Director, AEE, said:
“AEE is pleased to provide Bushnaq with the 2010 Legend in Energy Award. Bushnaq has been a member of AEE for almost 20 years, and is now an AEE Life Member. We are honoured to have him as a dedicated member of our organisation for so many years, and to now provide him with this lifetime designation as a Legend in Energy,” said AEE executive director Albert Thumann.
“It is now almost two decades since EMS commenced its pioneering journey in energy management in the Middle East. While our team has crossed major milestones, we are ever mindful of the long road that is yet be travelled in our quest for a sustainable future. The honour bestowed upon me by the AEE is an added impetus for EMS to progress towards new frontiers,” said Bushnaq.
