DUBAI: Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower) has achieved a 4.6 per cent reduction in electricity consumption during the second month of its ‘24˚C Cool’ campaign.

The three-month campaign targets more than 85,000 end-users. It urges them to set their air conditioners at 24 degrees Celsius in summer, to reduce energy consumption and consumer bill value. This supports the achieving of sustainable development goals.

“District cooling systems have proved their efficiency and ability to reduce electricity consumption, as they save around 50 per cent of the electricity for cooling compared to conventional cooling systems. Empower works on developing its district cooling technologies according to the best global practices. This helps in reducing energy consumption and providing more efficient and environmentally friendly district cooling services,” said Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO of Empower.

“Empower’s summer campaign is part of our initiatives to support various energy-efficiency and demand-side management strategies of the Dubai government, including the Dubai Integrated Energy Strategy, launched under the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai.
