Etihad Energy Services Company (Etihad ESCO) has signed an energy efficiency service agreement with Dubai Police to provide energy-efficient solutions for 34 of its facilities, the company said through a Press communiqué.

According to the communiqué, 34 facilities including police stations, prisons, and offices would be serviced under the agreement.

Speaking on the occasion, Ali Al Jassim, CEO of Etihad ESCO, said: “Dubai Police has always been at the forefront of green and sustainable initiatives. We are pleased to engage with them to support their drive towards a clean and green future.

“At Etihad ESCO, our goal is to collaborate with public and private sectors to make a positive contribution to the country and its strategies towards the future of energy. We’re confident that our agreement with Dubai Police will not only assist them to reduce energy usage but also facilitate access to new technologies and solutions for improving energy efficiency.”

Al Jassim added that as part of the agreement, Etihad ESCO would be installing solar PVs and conducting LEED audits for some of the police facilities, apart from providing water and electricity efficiency solutions.

These solutions, he added, would help Dubai Police to reduce their carbon emissions.

Lieutenant Colonel Dr Tamim Al Haj, Director of the Environment, Health and Safety Department at Dubai Police, added: “At Dubai Police, sustainability is the core of our operations. We believe that small things make big differences. Through our collaboration with Etihad ESCO, we aim to forecast the future towards sustainable development and adopt small changes to daily routines to make sustainability our way of life.
