Dubai, 20 December 2018 – His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chancellor of British University in Dubai, honored Ali Al Jassim, CEO, Etihad ESCO, in recognition of the success achieved by the Dubai Energy Efficiency Training Program, during the graduation ceremony held at the British University in Dubai (BUiD) on December 19, 2018. The Program was set up by TAQATI, established by Dubai Supreme Council of Energy (DSCE) under Etihad ESCO, in April 2018 with an aim to build the right capabilities to achieve Dubai’s ambitious target of 30 per cent reduction in energy consumption by 2030, and to foster a community of innovators and thought leaders to spearhead Dubai’s energy efficiency measures; and to create value for the emirate by offering continuous opportunities for professional development. The Energy Efficiency Training Program combines an array of internationally and locally certified training programs and modules to cater to the learning and development needs of various stakeholders in Dubai’s energy sector. A Performance Contracting and Funding Certification (PCF) course was organized for the first time in the UAE in September 2018, as part of the Program.
