Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower) on Sunday said it saved 892MW of electricity in 2015 in addition to more than 263 million gallons of water over the past five years.

"These results qualify us to be a leader in reducing carbon emissions in the UAE and scoop up many international recognitions and certificates as an environmentally friendly company," Ahmad bin Shafar, Chief Executive Officer of Empower, said in a press release.

Empower, the world’s largest district cooling services provider, renewed its commitment to protect the environmental resources in the UAE in conjunction with the World Environment Day (WED).

The company said that this commitment stems from Empower’s efforts to implement UAE Vision in adopting best sustainable solutions to save natural resources for future generations.

"Empower’s adherence to United Nation (UN)’s standards in protecting the environment is part of the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to prioritise sustainability to save environmental resources for generations to come," Safar added.

Throughout the past 13 years, Empower worked in accordance with Dubai plans towards sustainability and green economy through applying the latest technologies and developments in the cooling system. The company spearheaded many awareness campaigns for its customers to maximise the use of District Cooling technology that provides more than 50 per cent of energy savings compared with conventional cooling systems.

Empower operates more than 1.1 million Refrigeration Tonnes (RT), providing environmentally friendly district cooling services to large-scale real estate developments, such as Jumeirah Group, Business Bay, Jumeirah Beach Residence, Dubai International Financial Centre, Palm Jumeirah, Jumeirah Lake Towers, Ibn Battuta Mall, Discovery Gardens, Dubai Healthcare City, Dubai World Trade Centre Residences and Dubai Design District, among others.
