Empower chief executive officer Ahmad bin Shafar attributed the growth to three key drivers: the increase in occupancy in residential areas such as Jumeirah Beach Residence, Al Khail Gate, Ghuroob Mirdif and Tecom C, which led to a rise of 4.5 per cent in district cooling consumption; an increase in the number of new buildings receiving Empower’s service in Business Bay; and the rise in occupancy in commercial buildings which led to a 7.4 per cent increase in district cooling consumption.
