The 4th annual RetrofitTech Dubai Summit & Awards will kick off on April 10 to highlight the positive impact of retrofitting on cutting energy.

 The two-day event will also showcase some of the latest innovation and retrofit technology being introduced to the market.

 More than 250 attendees and 45 industry experts will take part in the gathering to discuss and find innovative ways to deliver on the UAE’s retrofit program of buildings.

Solution providers – such as Sylvania, Honeywell, Quantum Eurostar, Siemens, Daikin, Weber, Kimmco Isover, Talisen International, Belimo, Armstrong, Dow, ABB, Neon Energy, Opple Lighting, City Care Energy Solutions, Taqeef, Optima, NVC Lighting, Madico, CU Phosco, Ledvance, Smart Automation Energy, Auto Millennium Group, Farnel, Al Yousuf Engineering, Emirates Insolaire, Kromatix, Edge Technology, LPA Lighting and Energy Solutions and Luceco - will be showcasing their retrofitting products and solutions to more than 250 professionals in the market.

This prestigious event will include a dedicated awards ceremony to recognize and celebrate excellence and achievements in this field.

The Dubai Supreme Council of Energy has set the goal of reducing energy demand by 30% by 2030. Retrofitting and refurbishing existing buildings has been identified as a core strategy to reduce overall energy demand.

 The UAE allocated more than $8 billion to retrofit buildings in Dubai.

 "We believe this event will provide an ideal platform to know more about the development and growth plans of the UAE’s Retrofit sector“ said Ali Al-Jassim, CEO of Etihad ESCO.

Dubai’s outstanding effort in retrofitting buildings in the past years has helped generate energy and water savings across the Emirate. We are looking forward to continuing and accelerating the progress of this to help us achieve our target of retrofitting 30,000 buildings by 2030," he said.

"We have the pleasure of hosting the 4th Annual RetrofitTech Summit & Awards where we will announce all of our planned projects for 2018-19 and look at the different types and scope of retrofits we will be embarking on. Our partners in the public and private sectors will join us for the event to get the chance to examine the progress made so far, and look at the potential to save electricity and water through smart and innovative retrofits,” Added Ali Al-Jassim.

Dubai’s Etihad Energy Services Company (Etihad ESCO), which is specialized in retrofitting buildings in Dubai, aims to increase the share of central cooling in the Emirate to 40% by 2030.

In 2017, Etihad ESCO announced that it is planning to implement $ 43.56-million-dollar projects this year, diversifying beyond building retrofits into industrial retrofits and solar power projects.

ESCO has awarded the tender in May 2017 for the development and installation of solar photovoltaic systems at 640 villas for UAE Nationals in Hatta.

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) is currently retrofitting more than 30,000 buildings in the Emirate to ensure energy efficiency and manage energy demand.

The project is worth a total current investment of $ 8.17 billion and expected to achieve financial savings of $22.33 billion.

With 700 hotels currently operational in Dubai, retrofitting hotels may also become a requirement within Dubai.

 The healthcare and education sectors are also undergoing retrofitting. Hospitals including Sharjah Teaching Hospital and Issat Omran and universities like AUD and Zayed University have already started retrofitting in order to improve their energy efficiency programs.
