UAE-based Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower) is set to host the seventh edition of ‘International District Cooling Conference’ from November 13 to 15 in Dubai.
Themed as ‘A Climate Solution’, the conference will be attended by global delegations representing international energy-related companies and organisations.
It is being held under the patronage of Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, the chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy, and Emirates Airlines & Group, at Jumeirah Beach Hotel.
Empower's move to organise this event comes following its successful hosting of sixth edition of the conference in December 2014, said a top official.
"Hosting this global conference for the second time in two years goes in line with our firm commitment towards the global district energy sector. Empower’s position on the global district cooling map is part of Dubai’s position as a role model of green economy," remarked its CEO Ahmad bin Shafar.
"Organising this conference is part of our mandate to disseminate district cooling technology among developing countries in the world," he added.
Bin Shafar pointed out that choosing Dubai to host a specialised conference of this scale is a clear evidence of the confidence on the advancement of the district cooling industry in Dubai.
"Also, it shows the efforts made to spread the latest means of district cooling technology and the concept of sustainability around the world, which is also the spirit of Dubai Plan 2021 that aims to build a smart and sustainable city," he stated.
In addition to a series of sessions and panel discussions, ‘International District Cooling Conference 2016’ will incorporate a workshop, and an international trade exhibition that will display latest technologies and solutions in district cooling and rationalise energy consumption related to it.
The event will close with a technical tour to advanced and award-winning facilities of Empower.
