The presentation, led by Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO of Empower, and a series of high-level meetings with senior officials of the Ministry of Energy in India, is in line with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) on ‘District Energy in Cities’ initiative.

As the special advisor to UNEP on district cooling, Bin Shafar will also highlight the milestones of the growth of the district cooling sector in Dubai, which is among the world’s most effective in reducing electricity and water consumption by about 50 per cent.

The reduction in energy and water consumption reflects the vision of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

In line with the UAE’s national commitment to support the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development, Bin Shafar will further participate in Global Environment Facility (GEF)-6’s media launch themed ‘Creating & Sustaining Markets for Energy Efficiency,’ which is a part of the global ‘District Energy in Cities’ initiative.

In addition, Bin Shafar will also participate in a panel discussion on the role of innovative technologies in energy efficiency, and share the details of the role of DCS in enhancing competitiveness and economic sustainability and in Dubai.

The topics will include demand side management (DSM) strategy through the district cooling programme, tri-generation and smart meters, which contribute to efficient energy consumption.

Empower aims to raise awareness to scale up district cooling worldwide as an effective air conditioning technology, leading to increase in energy efficiency, reduction of carbon emissions and contribute to local and regional economies, said the company reporting to the press.
