The solution is designed to serve customers with accurate billing requirements, auto-detect and analyse meter fault for real-time rectification, provide a sustainable supply of district cooling for customers and result in a win-win situation for Empower as a district cooling service provider and for customers as recipients of cooling energy.

The second Innovation Award was received for the “Energy Transfer Solution Flow Control Optimisation Using Statistical Process Control, SPC,” which will benefit Empower as well as the end user. Applying SPC, Empower is committed to meeting the contractual demands of the end user in terms of flow requirements and supply temperature.

Empower was selected to win the awards for the adoption of state-of-the-art district cooling systems with world-class standards as well as its ability to deliver world-class district cooling services to a variety of projects in several fields and meet the increasing demand for district cooling in Dubai.

The awards are a recognition of Empower’s pivotal role in promoting the use of district cooling technology, which is an environmentally friendly and energy-saving practice used in residential and commercial buildings, hotels and other facilities. The awards also reflect Empower’s ability to save resources in operating costs, energy conservation, and preserving the environment from carbon emissions.
