National Central Cooling Company (Tabreed), the regional district cooling utility infrastructure company has reduced the amount of energy utilised for cooling within the Gulf Cooperation Council GCC by 1.3 billion kilowatt hours during 2015.

This amount of electricity is enough to power nearly 44000 homes in the UAE every year.

This reduction in energy consumption achieved by employing district cooling instead of conventional air conditioning has prevented over 650000 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) from being released into the atmosphere, which is equivalent to eliminating emissions of 130000 vehicles annually.

“Cooling has historically been a major consumer of energy in the region representing more than 50% of annual energy demand,” said Jasim Husain Thabet, Tabreed's Chief Executive Officer.

"Tabreed is proud to support many of the GCC's most high-profile projects and to work alongside our government and private partners to collectively contribute to the sustainable development of our region."

According to the United Nations Environment Programme, district cooling benefits from significant energy efficiencies compared to conventional air conditioning including an approximate 50% reduction in energy consumption.
