Etihad ESCO signs deal with Islamic Affairs Dept
Etihad ESCO will retrofit all of the department’s facilities including mosques, office buildings, and imam’s residences
UAE-based energy management services provider, Etihad ESCO, has recently signed a service agreement with the Islamic Affairs Department.
Etihad ESCO plans to float a tender seeking energy efficiency and water saving solutions for 650 facilities under the Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department.
The tender will include retrofit of facilities including mosques, office buildings, and imam’s residences.
The scope of work includes measures to save electricity, solar PV installation, as well as sustainable water saving solutions, which is a top priority, due to the nature of the facilities.
Etihad ESCO will also provide finance solution to the Islamic Affairs Department.
Ali Al Jassim, CEO, Etihad ESCO, said: “The retrofit service will offer a range of solutions that will make Islamic Affairs’ facilities across the Emirate eco-friendlier.
“Taking into consideration resource usage in these buildings, we are focusing on installing water saving technologies, as well as energy solutions like solar PV.”
“The energy efficiency initiative at these facilities will have a positive effect on the visitors, and will encourage worshippers to implement energy conservation measures at their homes and offices.
“This will eventually result in Dubai being a sustainable city with an environmentally-conscious population.”
