Dubai, UAE, 15 January 2019: Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO, Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower), the District Cooling services provider, has reviewed the draft copy of the ‘District Cooling Guide for Building Owners’, which will be published by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), Empower announced in a Press communiqué. The draft was reviewed during a workshop with the accompanying delegation on the sidelines of Empower’s participation at the 2019 ASHRAE Winter Conference and AHR Expo, held from 12 to 16 January, 2019, at Georgia International Convention Center in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, the communiqué said.

A workshop was organised to review the first draft of the ‘District Cooling Guide for Building Owners’, where participants presented a comprehensive report on all stages of design and implementation, the communiqué said. Attendees at the workshop also conducted a complete and final review of the digital and paper versions of the Guide, which will officially be released in April 2019, in a special event in Dubai, the communiqué further said. Bin Shafar thanked ASHRAE, for allowing Empower to be an active partner in this great scientific achievement, as it is an excellent academic reference for specialists, researchers and experts in the refrigeration sector around the world, the communiqué added.

Speaking on the occasion, Bin Shafar said: “We are proud that the United Arab Emirates, represented by Empower, is the first country in the world to sponsor the process of issuing the District Cooling Guide for Building Owners and the updated version of the District Cooling Guide. We are committed to participate in specialised events, including the ASHRAE conference, as it allows us to review our leading experience in District Cooling, especially in a region featured by different natural characteristics. Nevertheless, the Middle East has recently witnessed a quantum leap in this growing sector and has been able to promote sustainable development without harming the environment and wasting natural resources.”
