Infrastructure development of the district cooling system for ICD Brookfield Place involves connecting the building to Empower's district cooling plant in DIFC through pipelines using technology. District cooling services will be connected to the building in 3 phases.
“We are happy to provide district cooling services to ICD Brookfield Place, one of Dubai's leading real estate projects. The diversity in Empower’s portfolio reflects the confidence of real estate developers and customers in district cooling solutions. This is because of the sustainable district cooling services provided by Empower according to the highest international standards, for its customers, and saves energy by 50%, compared to conventional cooling services,” said Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO of Empower.

“Empower strives to take part in the implementation of the directives of the UAE’s wise leadership to transform Dubai into a global hub and a successful model of the new green economy to enhance its competitiveness, achieve sustainable development, and preserve its environment for future generations. Empower also supports the UAE Centennial 2071, which aims to make the UAE the best country in the world in all fields, especially in district cooling and environmental conservation. This works by educating and encouraging investors and large urban developers to gain benefit from energy efficient and environmentally friendly district cooling services that contribute to adopting green practices across Dubai,” added Bin Shafar.
