Muscat: Oman's Authority for Electricity Regulation has appointed Danish Energy Management (DEM) and the energy services company EMS to assist in establishing a working model and roll-out programme for energy services companies to carry out auditing and retrofitting for government buildings falling under the cost reflective tariff.
The objective of this programme is to achieve long-term reduction of energy consumption and operational costs in these high electricity-consuming government buildings and related services.
Qais bin Saud Al Zakwani, Executive Director, AER, said; ‘We are delighted to appoint Danish Energy Management which brings along a wealth of experience and expertise in the energy efficiency field and have vast experiences in delivering technical assistance and capacity development services worldwide."
This audit falls within the Yaseer initiative recently launched by the Authority for Energy Regulation. The aim of the auditing and retrofitting programme is to enable government institutions to achieve sustained reductions in their overall energy consumption by utilising the innovative solutions provided by specialized energy services companies.
Energy services companies have long served government markets internationally as they work to ensure improved building performance, access to expertise, installation of new, more efficient equipment and training of building staff with little to no upfront costs, with the inherent risks being managed by these companies themselves.
