Sustainability systems to be fitted at 34 Dubai Police facilities
Systems to save energy and water, as well as solar PV fixtures, will be installed by Etihad ESCO at Dubai Police facilities such as police stations, prisons, and offices
Up to 34 of Dubai Police's facilities would be installed with systems that boost their sustainability output, it was announced.
Etihad Energy Services Company (ESCO) signed a service agreement with Dubai Police to provide energy efficient and sustainable systems for its facilities, including police stations, prisons, and offices.
As part of the agreement, Dubai Police would "go green" with the installation of systems that would help save electricity and water, as well as reduce carbon emissions.
Etihad ESCO was also contracted to install solar photovoltaic (PV) systems at the facilities, and carry out LEED audits for some of Dubai Police's buildings.
The contract is expected to generate energy savings for Dubai Police.
Commenting on the contract, Eng Ali Al Jassim, the chief executive officer of Etihad ESCO, said: "Dubai Police has always been at the forefront of green and sustainable initiatives, [and] we are pleased to engage with them to support their drive towards a clean and green future.
"At Etihad ESCO, our goal is to collaborate with public and private sectors to make a positive contribution to the country and its strategies towards the future of energy.
"We are confident that our agreement with Dubai Police will not only assist them to reduce energy usage, but also facilitate access to new technologies and solutions for improving energy efficiency."
In 2016, Etihad ESCO’s retrofit projects saved 54 gigawatt-hours (GwH) of energy through retrofits of 2,178 buildings, which equated to $9.3m (AED34m).
