Etisalat Facilities Management (EFM) has signed a contract with Energy Management Services (EMS) for the implementation of an energy saving initiative to help improve operational efficiency.

EMS is expected to cut annual utility expenses by up to 20% by installing the product across Etisalat’s 358 buildings in the UAE.

Mustafa Ahmed Al Ateek, general manager, EFS said: "This project is part of our ongoing strategy to implement environmentally friendly and cost-saving solutions in line with the UAE's Green Economy for Sustainable Development initiative, which was announced by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, last month."

The product will help EFS clients to create a new source of revenue from a share of the energy savings, upgrade existing systems at zero cost and contribute to achieveing a green energy rating system.

Khaled Bushnaq, CEO, Energy Management Services, added: "EMS realises the importance in understanding the local environment and local buildings' operational protocols. [...] Organisations cannot afford to ignore their operational inefficiencies any longer as it continues to impact their profitability. EMS feels privileged to have been selected by EFM in executing this prestigious scheme. We anticipate eFM will begin realising cost savings in 2012 as a result of saved energy."
