Its pilot installation was carried out at the Al Tawba Mosque, Sharjah, over a period of six months between August 2015 and January 2016.

The exercise demonstrated year-over-year energy savings of 37%, and these findings are endorsed by the Sharjah government’s Department of Islamic Affairs, which oversees mosques in the emirate. 

The company's energy solutions portfolio and BMS include systems from Alerton and CentraLine.
