Says it ensures sustainability and conserves energy
On the occasion of the World Environment Day (WED) 2012, Emirates Central Cooling Corporation (Empower), has urged private and public sector entities as well as community organisations to make preservation of the environment a top priority. Announcing this in a communiqué, Empower asserted that district cooling technology was the ideal solution to preserve the environment.
Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO, Empower, said: “Preserving environment is a critical necessity, not a luxury that we can do without. Environmental degradation is the biggest challenge that is threatening the world today, and this is reflected in the drastic climate change we are witnessing today.”
He added that district cooling services were at the forefront of cooling solutions that ensured sustainability and conserved energy resources and that Empower had succeeded in increasing the footprint of usage of district cooling in Dubai by widening its use in residential and commercial areas and in offices and hotels.
According to Empower, the company is guided by the directive of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to conserve the environmental resources in the Emirate of Dubai.
