Opportunities in UAE’s retrofitting market
Some of the important future projects by Etihad ESCO will include energy management service (EMS) works for the Dubai Civil Defense, Hatta solar project, Dubai International Airport (Phase 2), and Dry-docks (Phase 2).
Etihad Energy Services (Etihad ESCO) has signed its first private sector service agreement with UAE-based luxury property developer Seven Tides. As part of this agreement, Etihad ESCO will now develop and tender ESCO activities for 22 properties, that are owned and managed by Seven Tides.
Under the Service Agreement, Etihad ESCO will provide Services to at least 22 properties, including offices, hotels and residential units in the emirate. The service agreement will provide Seven Tides with the market’s best energy conservation and solar solutions across Seven Tides’ portfolio of current real estate and hospitality projects.
The retrofit programme for 2017 will includes 2,000 buildings and energy saving of 20%.
Excellent Opportunities for the Sustainability and Energy Efficiency Industry:
- Several government-backed entities in Dubai have signed contracts worth around $20 million to make environmental improvements to their real estate portfolios.
- 28 per cent the cost savings up to this figure that can be achieved through energy efficient retrofitting according to the international energy agency
- 70 percent the amount of energy produced in the country that buildings use according to Dubai Municipality
- The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) estimates that buildings use about 40 per cent of global energy, so ‘greening’ buildings is a crucial part of any country’s energy-saving strategy.
- Experts estimate that as much as 29 per cent of energy consumed by buildings can be reduced at little or no cost
- Retrofitting buildings to green standards is a great source of job creation, and could create thousands of jobs across the Middle East
- The Empire State Building recently received an eco-friendly makeover, which will reduce energy costs by $4.4 million a year
