Empower is witnessing "remarkable successes" in terms of Artificial Intelligence solutions as the coronavirus pandemic keeps the region on lockdown.
Ahmad bin Shafar, CEO of Empower, said the endurance of district cooling services during this time of crisis is being achieved through a proactive vision to keep pace with rapid changes and improving performance, productivity and quality.
He said: "Inspired by the vision of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to rely on AI to upgrade future services, sectors, and infrastructure, Empower continues its efforts to support the Smart Dubai initiative to make Dubai the smartest and happiest city in the world, driven by its capabilities to adapt to global developments, foresee the future and harness all potentials to achieve prosperity and happiness.
"Dubai relies on AI to enhance energy sustainability and efficiency, and Empower is keen to be a key contributor to achieve this goal."
Key to this is Empower's un-manned, self-operating plants and Command Control Centre AI for analyzing millions of data, and the operation of the Thermal Energy Storage tanks.
Shafar added: "We are committed to research and develop everything related to district cooling operations, and will spare no effort or time in adopting modern innovations to effectively contribute to supporting the national innovation strategy, while continuing to provide services of outstanding quality to customers, residents, developers and building owners.
"The efforts of our teams in the field of innovation have been recognized locally and globally. Empower won international award recently in recognition of company’s outstanding contributions in adopting AI based advanced technologies in district cooling operations."
