Abu Dhabi Energy Services (ADES), a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi National Energy Company (TAQA), has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA), the UAE?s one of the largest public healthcare network

ADES will explore retrofitting SEHA?s healthcare facilities with energy efficient modifications that reduce power and water consumption to enhance energy efficiency and sustainability throughout the emirate of Abu Dhabi.

ADES and SEHA will be working closely together to assess current energy and water consumption trends and develop a comprehensive plan to improve efficiency across SEHA?s facilities. The MoU plays an important role in Abu Dhabi?s Demand Side Management and Energy Rationalisation Strategy 2030, which targets a reduction in electricity consumption by more than 22% and water consumption by more than 32%.

Dr Marwan Al Kaabi, acting group chief operations officer, SEHA, commented, ?As part of our mandate and vision to deliver the best health care that meets and exceeds world-class standards, we are always exploring ways of improving our services. Our MoU with TAQA enables us as an organisation to implement a stronger system for efficiency in our power and water usage across all our facilities. We are pleased to collaborate with TAQA to ensure we provide the most advanced and exceptional quality of services to all our patients. Our collaboration allows us to maintain both our power and technological systems at the highest levels, in order to optimise all our operations.?

ADES was announced in January 2020 to accelerate the transformation of Abu Dhabi?s power and water sector and is focused on identifying, sourcing and funding solutions that can deliver tangible reductions in both energy and water usage.
