DEWA’s Eti­had ESCO has part­nered with Siemens to aid the Is­lamic Af­fairs and Char­i­ta­ble Ac­tiv­i­ties Depart­ment (IACAD) with re­duc­ing the en­ergy con­sump­tion of 115 mosques and two build­ings through the ex­e­cu­tion of a retro­fit project.

Siemens will be sup­port­ing Eti­had ESCO and IACAD to pro­vide heat­ing, ven­ti­la­tion, and air con­di­tion­ing (HVAC); and wa­ter and light­ing retro­fit so­lu­tions; along with the in­stal­la­tion of con­trol sys­tems to fur­ther re­duce the en­ergy con­sump­tion of HVAC and light­ing, within the frame­work of the first phase of the pro­gram.

The project scope will also in­clude mea­sure­ment and ver­i­fi­ca­tion for a six years con­tract pe­riod. Upon com­ple­tion, Siemens will guar­an­tee a 20.43% re­duc­tion in an­nual en­ergy con­sump­tion, re­sult­ing in yearly savings of over AED3,000,000.

The en­ergy and equip­ment per­for­mance post the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the cur­rent project are guar­an­teed for six years, with a pay­back pe­riod of 3.7 years, Eti­had ESCO said.

Ali Al Jas­sim, CEO, Eti­had ESCO said: “Mosques are ca­pa­ble of set­ting per­fect ex­am­ples of en­ergy ef­fi­ciency prac­tices, thereby en­cour­ag­ing vis­i­tors to adopt the same. In­stal­la­tion of HVAC, wa­ter and light­ing retro­fit so­lu­tions, along with ad­di­tional con­trol sys­tems will sig­nif­i­cantly lower en­ergy con­sump­tion and gen­er­ate huge savings across 115 mosques un­der IACAD’s man­age­ment.”
