The Dubai Police have won three awards from the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy under the "Dubai Program for Excellence in Energy Demand Side Management."

This programme recognises exemplary efforts by institutions and individuals contributing to Dubai's sustainable future through responsible energy and water use efficiency, circular economy, innovation, and exceptional contributions that enhance the sustainable environment.

The awards were received for three sustainable projects: "Exemplary Maintenance Project", aimed at retrofitting Dubai Police buildings with energy-saving technologies; "Exemplary Solar Project", which involves using solar panels for clean energy, both implemented by the General Department of Logistics; and the "Exemplary EV Fleet" programme known as "i-Serve," executed by the General Department of Transport and Rescue, which converts service vehicles to eco-friendly ones.

His Excellency Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Vice Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy and MD & CEO of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), presented the awards during a ceremony at the Four Seasons Jumeirah on Monday.

His Excellency Major General Ali Ghanem, Assistant Commandant for Community Happiness and Logistics at Dubai Police, emphasised that under the guidance of His Excellency Lieutenant General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police, the force is committed to innovating projects and initiatives that apply best practices in energy efficiency and enhance a sustainable environmental work culture, aligning with Dubai Government's vision.

Ghanem highlighted the significance of these awards as they reflect Dubai Police's solid commitment to Dubai's "Energy Demand Management Strategy," aiming to reduce energy and water consumption and promote a more sustainable future. He also praised the programme's role in motivating institutions and individuals to work towards reducing energy and water consumption by 30% by 2030, reflecting Dubai Police's ongoing commitment to participating in all awards that reflect excellence in various fields, including energy.

Brigadier Juma Ahmad bin Darwish Al Falasi, Acting Director of the General Department of Transport and Rescue at Dubai Police, reiterated the commitment to adopting the best environmentally friendly practices in the field of vehicles, stating that the award-winning "i-Serve" electric vehicle project aims to convert service vehicles to environmentally friendly options, achieving a 100% reduction in petrol service vehicles, thus supporting Dubai's Sustainability initiative.
