Tabreed, the UAE-based district cooling utility company, has announced its annual energy savings in 2013 reached 1.2bn kilowatt hours (kWh).

The significant reduction in energy consumption translates into the elimination of 570,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, equivalent to the removal of over 110,000 cars from the streets, said a statement from the Abu Dhabi firm.

In the UAE alone, Tabreed’s 60 district cooling plants achieved a total energy saving of 1bn kWh, with the remaining 200m kWh savings produced in the company’s six plants located in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman and Bahrain, it stated.

Commenting on the saving, CEO Jasim Husain Thabet said cooling accounts for 50% of total energy consumption in the GCC region and 70% during the peak summer months.

“With an expanding population, economic growth and diversification underway, as well as continued industrialisation, it is becoming increasingly vital that reliable, energy-efficient and eco-friendlier cooling solutions are utilised in order to meet our growing cooling requirements," Thabet said.

“As a key infrastructure partner, Tabreed is proud of the role it plays in enabling the region’s, and in particular the UAE’s, economic and social development. By decreasing the energy consumed for cooling, we are simultaneously able to protect the environment, lower our carbon footprint, and play a modest role in helping the UAE realise its vision of a sustainable economy,” he added.

Tabreed’s district cooling services are delivered to many of the UAE’s landmark projects including the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Marina Circuit, Dubai Metro, and Etihad Towers.

In the GCC, Tabreed also provides cooling to key projects such as The Pearl – Qatar, and the Aramco establishments in the Eastern region of Saudi Arabia.
