The company emphasised the importance of district cooling to real estate developers ahead of the upcoming Cityscape Abu Dhabi2017, one of the largest and most significant real estate events, which will take place at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC)from April18th to 20th 2017.

'District cooling is the need of the hour. It paves the way for economic advancements. The UAE is making remarkable advancements in real estate; as such adopting district cooling is the way forward,” saidH.E. Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO of Empower.

A report by Transparency Market Research Report stated that the global market for district cooling is likely to expand at a 5.10 per cent CAGR during the period from 2015 to 2024, surging from a value of US$11.1 billion in 2015 to US$17.3 billion by the end of the forecast period. The increasing focus on energy saving and the burgeoning demand for BREEAM and LEED-certified buildings are expected to fuel the district cooling sector.According to the study, the Middle East and Africa, North America, Latin America, Asia Pacific and Europe are the key regional markets for district cooling across the world.
