Etihad ESCO is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA)
Etihad Energy Services Company (Etihad ESCO) has signed a service agreement with the ENOC Group, which will see the former upgrade the latter’s services stations with improved air conditioning, automated lighting and will also install solar photovoltaic (PV) systems.
The agreement stipulates that Etihad ESCO will enhance the energy efficiency at one ENOC service station as a proof of concept, following which the upgrades will also be performed on other stations. The project is expected to enable ENOC Group to cut down its energy consumption by more than 36% in the coming years.
“The project supports the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 to establish the emirate as a global hub for clean energy and energy management efficiency. We will work on providing sustainable solutions and installing solar PV systems to aid ENOC petrol stations in cutting down more than 36% of its energy consumption in the next seven years. The higher efficiencies resulting from the retrofitting of existing buildings and establishments support the objectives of the Demand Side Management Strategy 2030, to reduce electricity and water demand by 30 per cent by 2030,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, chairman of Etihad ESCO and MD and CEO of DEWA.
The agreement was signed by Al Tayer and ENOC Group CEO Saif Humaid Al Falasi. Al Falasi said that sustainability initiatives have always been ENOC’s priority.
“Our goal is to support implementing the UAE Green Growth Strategy. Our new partnership with Etihad ESCO will further accelerate our journey towards the achievement of our sustainability goals while also underscoring the increasing significance of such initiatives in promoting sustainable development in the future,” noted Al Falasi.
