Sharjah Electricity & Water Authority has paid a visit to Qatar, to share information with Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation’s (Kahramaa) Conservation and Energy Efficiency (CN) Department.

Kahramaa has received a delegation from Sharjah Electricity & Water Authority related to energy and water conservation and the efficient utilisation of the valuable resources, The Peninsula reports.

The CN Department shared a presentation on Qatar’s fruitful experiments conducted through the National Program of Conservation and Energy Efficiency ‘Tarsheed’, which focused extensively on the implementation of Conservation Law no. 20/2015, regarding electricity and water consumption.

The presentation included information on awareness drives as well as formulating and regulating laws for tariff, electrical appliances, conserving building practices and renewable energy, as part of the projects and initiatives of ‘Tarsheed’, which was launched by Kahramaa in 2012.

The UAE delegation praised the Tarsheed program for its role in information dissemination around the conservation and consumption of energy and water, while embracing new technologies pertinent to renewable energy.

The Sharjah delegation’s visit was the end of a Gulf Tour by the UAE delegation in an effort to promote relations and share expertise among the GCC countries around providing the best electricity and water services, applying the newest technology and encouraging a culture of conservation to preserve vital resources.

The delegation also visited Kahramaa’s Awareness Park – due to open this year and is the first of its kind in the region.

The facility, whose main focus is to inform future generations of the importance of conserving electricity and water consumption and preserving natural resources to achieve comprehensive sustainability as per Qatar National Vision 2030, will receive schools, universities and researchers.
