With the world’s population set to reach 9.6billion by 2050, Empower has called for joint efforts to preserve natural resources through eco-friendly services.
Dubai has adopted many advanced strategic plans to keep up with the anticipated population growth and preserve natural resources for future generations.
The Emirate is moving towards utilising eco-friendly comprehensive services, including district cooling services, as one of the leading cities in urbanization and population and economic growth.
Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO of Empower, said: “Anticipated increases in the Earth's population greatly impacts natural resources, particularly water.
“This requires joint regional and global efforts to apply the best green practices in all projects and operations, including district cooling services, to help maintaining a safe and healthy environment for the future generations.”
“Without proper actions regionally and globally to preserve these resources, the significant growth in population can be disastrous. We are all partners in protecting Earth.”
Empower has also received a ‘carbon emissions reduction certificate’ issued by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
The company pointed that district cooling services effectively contributes towards the reduction of carbon emissions that cause global warming, increasing water evaporation rates and the rapid depletion of this vital resource.
Bin Shafar: “Empower uses state-of-the-art technology in district cooling, and employs AI to monitor and control chilled water circulation through the plants via the thermal energy storage system which reduces both power consumption and burden on the national grid in peak hours.
“Moreover, treated sewage water is used through treated sewage effluent system, for the cooling of the devices and equipment inside the station to assure further reduction in consumption of fresh water.”
