Estate management company Provis has achieved major energy and utility cost savings worth more than US$ 820,000 in the last six months in 12 communities across its portfolio
The company demonstrated its commitment to the environment through introducing various sustainability solutions that resulted in avoiding 10,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions and nearly 22mn KWH of total energy from chilled water and electricity optimisation initiatives, resulting in 66 per cent overall improvement in utility savings compared to the same period last year.
HP Aengaar, Provis CEO, said, “We are committed to the long-term sustainability objectives of the country and will spare no effort to positively contribute to the UAE Vision 2021 and the Abu Dhabi Environment Vision 2030. Thanks to our team’s expertise, we were able to make significant savings across several communities we manage without compromising quality.”
Other green features implemented in Provis managed communities include the installation of energy-efficient LED lights and the implementation of several water conservation techniques using weather-based irrigation systems and the use of Treated Sewage Effluent for irrigation purposes that led to water savings worth US$81677.55.
Closely aligned, the UAE Vision 2021 includes achieving a sustainable environment at its core while the Abu Dhabi Environment Vision 2030 aims to preserve and enhance the emirate’s natural heritage by promoting the efficient use of natural resources and contributing to a better quality of life for all.
Provis utilises a cloud-based real time Building Management System (BMS) that instantly collects data and automatically detect faults and therefore lowers operating costs and reduces energy bills. The BMS is projected to save four per cent to six per cent of energy and operating costs annually across Provis managed communities. Other technologically powered solutions such as data analytics of assets and cooling optimisation have already been rolled out and the company is seeing clear results across its portfolio.
