Dubai Energy Efficiency Training Program Holds Performance Contracting & Funding Certification Course for the First Time in the UAE
The Dubai Energy Efficiency Training Program, launched by TAQATI (DSM Program Management Workplace) as component of its required, effectively held the sneak preview Getting and also Financing Qualification (PCF) course in the UAE, from September 18 to 20, 2018, at the British University in Dubai (BUiD).
Among the biggest barriers to obtaining energy projects accepted as well as applied is the absence of upfront resources. The PCF program, licensed by the Association of Power Engineers (AEE), helps much better finance energy projects and successfully use efficiency contracting as well as innovative funding versions based upon best techniques. The training course was specifically designed for CFOs and financial managers, financiers, ESCO and also solar experts, center managers and structure owners.
Ali Al Jassim, CEO, Etihad ESCO, said: “We are proud to introduce latest globally accredited energy efficiency trainings programs in Dubai to drive the regional market growth. Although energy projects deliver attractive and long-lasting financial benefits, many professionals do not possess the necessary skill sets to effectively navigate and design their financing options. PCF course is designed to bridge this skill gap by building the right capabilities to achieve Dubai’s ambitious target of 30 per cent reduction in energy consumption by 2030.”
TAQATI, the dedicated Program Management Office for the Dubai Demand Side Management (DSM) strategy, set up under Etihad Energy Service Company (Etihad ESCO), launched the Dubai Energy Efficiency Training Program in April 2018 in partnership with BUiD, AEE and the International Institute for Energy Training (IIET).
