Reducing the Emirate’s energy, electricity and water consumption by upto 30 percent by 2030 is a huge task. And Dubai’s Demand Side Management Strategy has taken up the Herculean challenge to make this happen.
The organization is set to host the much-awaited annual event ‘Outdoor Lighting Projects UAE’, scheduled for March 14-15, that will see the participation of firms working towards sustainable development. Besides offering lucrative business opportunities, the event will also act as a catalyst boosting the Emirates drive of becoming one of the most eco-friendly nations.
“The Dubai Supreme Council of Energy has set the goal of reducing energy demand by 30 percent by 2030. Recently, the UAE Ministry of Energy and Etihad ESCO signed an MoU to develop Federal Energy Services Market in the UAE,” said an organiser.
“To achieve a reduction in the UAE’s energy demand, retrofitting and refurbishing existing buildings while reducing the water and electricity consumption have been identified as core strategy. In addition, retrofitting outdoor lighting networks with energy efficient systems will also be critical,” he added.
“We are committed to include various eco-friendly elements and technologies in our projects that would facilitate in decreasing the dependence on power. We would be showcasing our pioneering technologies at this two-day event,” said Mohamed El Masri, the Head of Business Development of Sharjah Oasis Real Estate Co.
