The Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum chaired the Supreme Council’s 46th meeting that reviewed the strategic projects, initiatives and programmes to enhance energy efficiency in Dubai.

The meeting was also attended by HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Vice Chairman of the Supreme Council of Energy.

Talking about what transpired during the meeting, Al Tayer said: “The meeting supports the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050, launched by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to make Dubai a global hub for clean energy and green economy, and in adherence with the Demand Side Management Strategy to reduce energy and water demand by 30% by 2030.

"The meeting reviewed the study to improve the operational efficiency of cooling units in buildings by Etihad Energy Services Company (Etihad ESCO), which specialises in retrofitting buildings in Dubai to increase the share of central cooling in Dubai to 40% by 2030. We also reviewed a proposal to develop a power rating system for existing buildings, which relies on water and electricity consumption, to promote the Building Retrofit Programme, which is part of the Demand Side Management Strategy.”

The proposed nominations were approved by the Technical Committee of Emirates Energy Award (EEA) after a detailed study by a team of accredited experts. The number of applications, which were from countries from the Middle East and North Africa, as well as Europe and Asia, had doubled this year compared to the previous year's award.
