In a statement, Etihad ESCO said it was implementing a “detailed analysis” of both facilities, following which, energy conservation measures (ECMs) would be proposed according to project requirements.

The retrofit project’s implementation is due to complete this year.

Ali Al Jassim, chief executive officer of Etihad ESCO, said the project was the company’s “first of many” in the UAE capital.

“Al Ghurair’s commitment to promoting energy efficiency will encourage other public and private entities in Abu Dhabi to join the march towards sustainability,” he continued.

Jamal Al-Ghurair, group chairman of Jamal Al Ghurair Group, said the organisation hoped its retrofit scheme would “contribute to the UAE’s sustainable development”.

“We are optimistic that the ECMs proposed by Etihad ESCO […] will help us gain from savings, in terms of both cost and energy.”
