ADES will continue to build energy services offerings in the Emirate, and further leverage our skills and expertise to enable commercial and industrial clients to realise sustainability ambitions. The team has laid the groundwork for significant growth and I look forward to working with our clients to future-proof their facilities toward a net-zero future,” Al-Qubaisi said following his appointment.
