Empower campaign records 4.1% savings on district cooling consumption

DUBAI, Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation, Empower, has concluded its ’24?C Cool’ campaign, and achieved 4.1 percent savings on district cooling consumption in the past three months.

The campaign, which was launched in July 2018, seeks to reduce energy consumption through maintaining optimum temperature and reducing the value of customers’ consumption bills, to achieve sustainable development goals Commenting on the achievement, Ahmad bin Shafar, CEO of Empower, said that the initiatives aim to reduce energy consumption and preserve natural resources. This supports the objectives of the Dubai Integrated Energy Strategy 2030 which aims to transform the emirate into a global hub for clean energy and green economy and strengthen its position to become the city with the lowest carbon footprint in the world.

He added that it also supports the UAE Vision 2021, which aims to make the UAE one of the best countries in the world by the Golden Jubilee of the Union.

“The campaign achieved satisfactory results that reflect consumer awareness. Consumers are active partners in national sustainable development plans, through their commitment to reduce consumption, especially in summer when there is a high demand for energy usage. This is why we double our efforts, in summer, to meet the increasing demand for cooling services, through sustainable public awareness and educational initiatives,” Empower’s CEO concluded.
