DUBAI, 12th March, 2019 (WAM) -- Etihad ESCO has participated as a strategic partner for the recently concluded MEFMA CONFEX 2019, along with the Dubai Energy Efficiency Programme, TAQATI, (set up under Etihad ESCO).

At the exhibition this year, Etihad ESCO team shed the spotlight on retrofit projects it has implemented in the past and the cost savings achieved through the execution of energy conservations measures.

The ninth edition of the CONFEX - which concluded today in Dubai - attracted the participation of more than 500 attendees representing government entities, developers, facility management service providers and suppliers.

Meanwhile, Shadi Al Kadi, Director at TAQATI, delivered a presentation on ‘How Smart Data can Optimise Building Efficiency and Energy Management’ on second day of the conference. In addition to the conference and exhibition sessions, workshops that were held on the final day of the event covered key discussions on the sharing of best practices in facility management.

For his part, Ali Al Jassim, CEO of Etihad ESCO, said, "As strategic partners at the ninth MEFMA CONFEX, we were able to showcase our successful retrofit projects and the energy savings achieved through them before the region’s facility management sector. The role they play in the achievement of the Dubai Overall Energy Reduction targets that seek to save 30 percent energy by 2030 make them even more relevant. By demonstrating our successes at the event, we hope that we were able to inspire many more public and private entities to follow suit in the adoption of energy saving measures."

Etihad ESCO, with its mission to make Dubai’s built environment a leading example of energy efficiency, is currently retrofitting over 30,000 buildings in the emirate to ensure energy efficiency and manage rising energy demand.
