Lack of energy saving steps sees rise in bills

By Staff Writer

Commercial and residential property owners and tenants in Dubai who failed to take energy saving measures a year ago will have seen their electricity bills soar by up to 66 per cent in the past 12 months, according to a new survey, details of which were released recently.

The survey was carried out for leading property and facilities management event FMExpo, by Farnek Avireal, the UAE company which advises building owners on how to cut utility bills. FM Expo takes place from May 24 to 26 at the Dubai International Exhibition and Convention Centre and is the premier event for the Middle East property and facilities management industry, estimated to be worth $704 billion (Dh2.5 trillion) over the next 25 years.
