Rating the true energy performance of Dubai's buildings
By 2030 Dubai aims to have improved energy and water efficiency by 30%. Addressing the efficiency of the existing building stock will be a significant contributor to that effort. Dubai's electricity and water regulatory body, the RSB, has developed a scheme to rate the electricity and water performance of Dubai's buildings. This scheme looks at actual, not theoretical, performance. By identifying and exposing both good and poor performance, the aim is to encourage building owners to improve their assets.
The Middle East Chapter’s next virtual event on Tuesday 2 June will describe the scheme, the benchmarking results so far obtained on a sample of Dubai's buildings, and the plans for scheme implementation.
- Dubai has an ambitious and comprehensive demand-side management strategy
- Building performance rating has a key role in the emirate's efficiency efforts
- By looking at the operational performance of buildings, the Dubai rating scheme aims to address the weaknesses of asset rating schemes, that offer little insight into true energy use
- We have a good baseline understanding of energy performance across apartment and office buildings
- With the real estate market likely to get only more competitive, differentiating your building's performance should become only more important for owners
