Ishraq invests in premium energy reduction solutions for two Express by Holiday Inn hotels in Dubai

Green credentials becoming deciding factor for real estate investors


Energy Management Services (EMS), one of the leading energy management and consultancy firms in the Middle East, has recently announced that it has signed an agreement with Ishraq Gulf Real Estate Holding (BSC) to provide premium energy reduction solutions for the Express by Holiday Inn Hotels at Al Safa and Jumeirah.

“There is certainly a trend for real estate developers to invest in environmentally friendly and energy efficient solutions for their projects, as the green credentials of a building are becoming the deciding factor for many real estate investors. Our solutions will help the two hotels to become more environmentally friendly and more economically viable by significantly reducing the operational and utility costs,” commented Khaled Bushnaq, Managing Director, EMS.

Under the terms of the agreement, EMS will provide Energy Efficient Architecture (EEA) analysis and solutions for the two developments, which are in varying stages of feasibility and construction by the innovative property development company.  Various solutions will be introduced that will enable the Express by Holiday Inn to optimise its energy performance and achieve significant savings, without compromising its operation, services, style or comfort level, while also enhancing the comfort, health and well being of its guests.  

EMS will also provide a systematic evaluation procedure directed at analysing the function of systems, processes and building equipment, for the purpose of achieving the required functions at the lowest total cost of ownership. 
“We have decided to implement these EEA solutions based on our commitment to offer guests a premium living environment that is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also healthier than other developments. It was a natural decision to make, as the cost of implementing these solutions will be offset by the significant reductions in our utility bills,” said Sami Al Ansari, (CEO), Ishraq. 

Since its establishment in 1991, EMS has strengthened its position in the Middle East markets, offering integrated services that include designing, implementation and investment in cost-effective energy projects for industrial, commercial and institutional customers, conducting value analysis for buildings under construction and providing training in energy-efficient systems.

With offices in KSA, Bahrain, Qatar, Jordan, Kuwait and the UAE, EMS is focused on providing innovative cost-effective technologies for the design, construction and operational stages of various developments throughout the Gulf region.
