Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation, the largest district cooling service provider in the region and a joint venture between TECOM Investments and Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), this week collected four prestigious awards at the International District Energy Association's (IDEA) 99th Annual Conference in Florida, US.


Ahmad Bin Shafar , CEO of Empower, received the awards – three gold and one silver - from Robert P. Thornton, President of IDEA, at a gala ceremony held on the sidelines of the IDEA conference, which ran from 29 June – 2 July and brought together a distinguished gathering of industry experts from the district energy sector.


In his acceptance speech, Bin Shafar said:


“These awards are a great honor for us and affirm the industry's recognition of the strides Empower has made to further the advancement of the energy efficient cooling service in the region.


“This prominent recognition confirms Empower's leadership, highlights the company’s strengths and future potential and validates our commitment to delivering on our promises. Empower's solid business strategy and our hard working and talented team are the main reasons behind today’s achievement. It also underpins our position as the largest district cooling service provider in the region.”


Empower received the three gold awards for the total square footage committed to district cooling on the UAE level; the total number of buildings committed on the UAE level, and the total number of buildings on a corporate level in the GCC. The silver award came its way for the total square footage committed on a corporate level in the GCC.
