Empower unveils district cooling guides for property owners


Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower) has launched two guides for building owners and designers on district cooling services and operating systems.

The launch comes following the naming of Dubai as a "Champion City" for global district cooling.

The guides were unveiled during a workshop sponsored by Empower and organised by ASHRAE, to review the guides by specialists and researchers in the cooling sector from around the world.

Empower CEO Ahmad bin Shafar said that the company will continue its efforts to transform Dubai into a global hub for clean energy and a green economy.

The 'Owner’s Guide for Buildings Served by District Cooling’ is a reference for building owners and designers, providing them with basic information on the advantages of district cooling services and the installation and operation of cooling systems in a simple manner, he explained.

The guide addresses owners' concerns, such as a selection of the design consultant, responsibilities for the maintenance of equipment within buildings, and the specific structures for district cooling pricing, in addition to service linkage, networks, meters and maintenance.

It also reviews design flaws and other system constraints on existing buildings, and includes various supplements with case studies on performance issues, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
