ABU DHABI — Japanese experts will make a presentation next week on sustainable ‘Cool City’, which will save up to 60 per cent of energy and provide a solution to the escalating carbon dioxide percentage in the UAE atmosphere. The presentation will be made in the presence of officials and business leaders in Abu Dhabi tomorrow and in Dubai on November 5, it was announced at a Press conference.

The sustainable Cool City concept is based on the principles of eco-friendly infrastructure and energy consumption.

Cool City will incorporate the latest green technology in transport, urban development and architecture with a low carbon footprint.

The city is being promoted by the Sustainable Urban Development Consortium for Japan and Gulf States Partnership (SDCJ).

Led by Japanese company Nikken Sekkei, the delegation will consist of top Japanese business leaders, government advisers and technical experts.

“This is not just about concepts but specific and detailed technical proposals which Japan wishes to share with the UAE,” said Mitsuo Nakamura, consortium representative and president and CEO of Nikken Sekkei Limited, one of the world’s largest architectural design firms.

“The UAE is well aware of the environmental challenges it faces and energy conservation will be a key issue in the years to come. We want to share our technological advances with the UAE, in the belief that it could make a significant contribution towards reducing its carbon footprint,” said Nakamura.
