AURAK will benefit from 21% lower electricity
bills, and 15% lower water bills, equivalent to around AED 900,000 saved
each year, while cutting its annual carbon emissions by 700 tons
- Siemens is providing energy-efficient air-conditioning
and water-conservation systems at the AURAK campus
Siemens has partnered with the American University of Ras Al Khaimah
(AURAK) to help the university reduce expenses and curtail carbon emissions as
it educates a future generation of leaders.
A part of the collaboration, Siemens will be retrofitting the air
conditioning, ventilation, lighting and hot water systems and install water
conservation equipment and advanced energy controls across 19 buildings at the
AURAK campus. These measures will save the university around AED 900,000

The three entities plan to add electric vehicle
charging infrastructure to federal roads
- MoEI, Siemens and Audi to cooperate on
initiatives that promote the switch to electric vehicles and sustainable
The United Arab Emirates’ Ministry of Energy and
Infrastructure (MoEI), Audi Middle East, and Siemens signed an agreement to
cooperate on boosting electric vehicle (EV) charging capacity on federal roads
and increasing adoption of EVs across the country.
The agreement follows MoEI’s selection in June of
Siemens technology for a nationwide network of ultra-fast chargers. The
discussions with Audi are expected to expand on this initiative as part of the
brand’s ambitious infrastructure investment plans across the UAE.
- Siemens will deliver the control system, software and other components of a microgrid powering QSE's solar-panels factory in Doha
- The hybrid power system will enable QSE to save on electricity and curtail carbon emissions
Siemens will deploy the Middle East's first microgrid designed for industrial use, enabling Qatar Solar Energy (QSE) to reduce electricity costs, curb carbon emissions and benefit from a more stable power supply.
The microgrid at QSE's factory in Doha will comprise a mix of energy sources -- the local grid, solar panels, battery storage, back-up generators and cooling system. Generating as much as 1 megawatts from the sun, the hybrid network will enable QSE to trim its electricity bills by maximizing use of solar power and storing energy in batteries to satisfy on-peak demand.
