Dubai, UAE, 9 September 2018: A number of upcoming mega-projects in the Middle East will contribute to a rise in demand for space cooling, said Ziad Al Bawaliz, President, Danfoss Middle East, Turkey and Africa. “Mega-projects like the Expo 2020 in the United Arab Emirates, NEOM City in Saudi Arabia and the 2020 FIFA Wold Cup in Qatar, will all contribute to a rise in demand for space cooling and energy consumption,” he added.

Pointing to the rise in energy demand as just one on-going challenge, Al Bawaliz said, “Each country has a different market demand, however, the market lacks liquidity in the way the projects are executed.” This, he said, puts tremendous pressure on contractors and suppliers. Al Bawaliz added, “Danfoss believes that there is a need for continued leadership in order to steer towards a more sustainable HVACR industry and this includes the need for discussion among industry leaders, which will eventually help in policy lobbying for a more solid, regulated framework.”
