Also present were Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Vice Chairman of the Supreme Council of Energy, and Ahmed Buti Al Muhairabi, Secretary General of the Supreme Council.

"The Council was briefed on the latest energy demand management approaches led by the Dubai Integrated Energy Strategy 2030 and the management and distribution of gas in Dubai in line with Dubai's Integrated Gas Strategy 2030. Both strategies have been established in line with the directives of the leadership, as well as the goals of the UAE Vision 2021 and Dubai Plan 2021, which focuses on sustainable development, the preservation of environment and fulfilling the aspirations of all concerned. The energy demand management strategy includes eight major programmes: green building systems specifications, retrofitting of buildings and cooling areas, and raising standards of efficiency of appliances, equipment and lighting, among others. Each stakeholder will provide the Council with information on the status of retrofitting buildings according to green building standards," said Al Tayer.

We have also invested Dh 16 million in seven building sat DEWA to conserve 31 per cent of their annual power consumption, equivalent to 6GWhoverthe next six years," said Al Muhairabi.
