Cofely Besix Facility Management (CBFM) has been recognised by HE Suhail Mohammed Al Mazrouei, Minister of Energy and Industry, for it's contribution to energy efficiency in the UAE.

CBFM was awarded with a certificate for its efforts and productive cooperation with the Ministry of Energy and the FM sector in general.

Jameel Hussain, lead energy auditor at Cofely Besix Facility Management said: “Obtaining the certificate involved participating in an active workshop throughout the year, as well as assisting the Ministry of Energy in mapping potential energy conservation measures (ECM’s) for typical buildings across the United Arab Emirates.”

Over the past year, CBFM conducted various energy audits for schools, mosques and government buildings. “In addition, we defined the energy baselines and performed the regression analyses enabling us to understand the various buildings behaviour and saving potential, as well as the proposal of a list of ECMs,” Hussain added.

Previously, CBFM received accreditation from Energy Services Company (ESCO), Regular Supervisory Bureau (RSB) and the Abu Dhabi Water & Electricity Authority (ADWEA).

“Building solid relationships with governing bodies is important to us and enables CBFM to engage in mutually beneficial partnerships,” added Bart Holsters, head of energy, ESCO and renewables at Cofely Besix Facility Management.
