Empower has recorded a milestone achievement in power saving over 892 megawatts of energy in 2015 by using district cooling.

Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO of Empower, said the figure was down to more efficienct cooling plants and acceptance to district cooling among end-users and building owners.

“We provide district cooling services to many businesses and hotels in Dubai, which are firms that follow strict environmental strategies that made them subscribe to district cooling. The data shows how big the DC systems benefit the environment, businesses and households in their energy consumption, and the state’s power grid,” said Bin Shafar.

“The saving in MW marks huge impact on power plant capacity of Dubai. Since adopting district cooling services in the UAE, we realised that this technology could contribute to energy saving and conservation of natural resources. Indeed, our strategy has led to making us a major contributor in Dubai’s transition towards a green economy."
