Dubai, UAE, 16 May 2019: Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower) has signed a gold sponsorship agreement for two years with ASHRAE RAL for its activities in Africa, the Middle East, South Asia (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka) and Turkey.

Through the sponsorship, Empower will pursue to shed light on ASHRAE’s RAL activities and its role in supporting energy-efficient cooling solutions, in addition to the UAE’s efforts to support District Cooling, which aims to strike the desired balance among such goals as economic development, preserving the environment, reducing carbon emissions and achieving sustainability.

Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO, Empower and Dr Ahmed Alaa Eldin, Director & Regional Chairman, ASHRAE Region-At-Large, signed the agreement. Speaking on the occasion, Bin Shafar said the agreement is an affirmation of strengthening the ongoing cooperation between Empower and ASHRAE RAL in the field of District Cooling. He stressed the importance of supporting ASHRAE’s RAL global efforts, through several future agreements between the two organisations, as it is the global sustainability partner for many District Cooling companies.

“We strive to move forward through partnerships and agreements with many international organisations and entities, to enhance Empower’s role in contributing to the global strategies and initiatives that promote sustainable development,” Bin Shafar said. “The ASHRAE RAL gold sponsorship agreement contributes to increasing Empower’s brand awareness and communicating its goals and strategies across the global market. It also helps us to highlight the UAE’s efforts and the leadership’s vision to overcome energy challenges, adapt climate changes and boost the transition towards sustainability. Empower seeks to reduce emissions by encouraging investors and owners of major projects, in the UAE and abroad, to adopt efficient District Cooling systems, and also by sponsoring and participating in ASHRAE’s RAL conferences, locally and internationally. This supports the vision of our wise leadership, as well as the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) for the transition towards sustainability.”
