Masdar implementing energy management solution

Masdar_C3Masdar is using C3’s energy management technology in Masdar City to monitor and optimize energy, water, sustainable transportation and waste.Masdar and C3, a energy and emissions management solutions provider, announced today that Masdar is using C3’s energy management technology in Masdar City to monitor and optimize energy, water, sustainable transportation and waste.

The C3 solution is also being implemented to manage Masdar’s portfolio of international renewable generation projects and track the company’s global portfolio of CDM (clean development mechanism) carbon abatement projects and carbon credits.

“Improving energy efficiency is a critical step in optimizing operations, reducing demand and lowering waste,” said Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, CEO of Masdar.

First phase completed

The first phase of the C3 implementation has been completed, providing Masdar the ability to track all aspects of resource use across Masdar City – the low-carbon, low-waste city. This system includes monitoring and managing energy production and consumption, transportation efficiency, waste production and recycling, and water usage.

Highly efficient

The C3 analysis confirms that Masdar City’s residential buildings are highly efficient, with a 56 percent reduction in electricity demand versus the ASHRAE 90.1-2004 standard, and a 70 percent reduction versus the average Abu Dhabi multi-unit residential building.

Feedback on sustainability

Masdar Power is also using C3 to monitor its global portfolio of renewable power projects, including Gemasolar, its 19.9MW CSP plant in Seville, Spain. The software will provide Masdar with invaluable feedback on the sustainability of their wide reaching local and international renewable energy projects.
