Johnson Controls Arabia, a provider of integrated solutions that include HVAC equipment, fire and security systems, building management systems and controls in the MENA region, has achieved remarkable energy efficiency results in its projects over the past two years. The company has reduced energy consumption in its projects by 263 gigawatt hours annually, reducing their operational costs by more than SR80 million ($21.3 million), which is equivalent to planting 3 million trees and saving the national economy 432,000 barrels of oil.
Johnson Controls Arabia recently showcased its solutions at two key industry events: the 7th RetrofitTech Saudi Summit (Nov 14-15) and the 14th Real Estate Development Summit (Nov 15-16) in Riyadh. With a guaranteed 25-30 percent reduction in energy consumption and a four to six-year ROI, the company spotlighted its retrofit services, which make up 80 percent of its business, emphasizing their role in modernizing systems. Johnson Controls Arabia also highlighted its energy-saving and aftermarket services and tailored solutions for diverse sectors and budgets.
Dr. Mohanad Al-Shaikh, CEO of Johnson Controls Arabia, said: “At Johnson Controls Arabia, we’re dedicated to advancing ambitious national goals on carbon emissions and climate change. Our products thrive on global technological trends, boasting extended lifespans through advanced retrofit and aftermarket services. With a robust portfolio and a skilled team, we stay at the forefront, aligning seamlessly with the evolving needs of local and regional businesses.”
“We have recently initiated a comprehensive modernization process for the ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration system of a distinguished commercial center in Riyadh, enabling an annual reduction in energy consumption costs by approximately SR900,000. Replacing the project’s outdated chillers and pumps with state-of-the-art cooling management systems will also yield a tangible return on investment within a period of four to six years,” Al-Shaikh added.
Retrofit projects hold significant importance for HVAC systems as they ensure the sustainability and efficacy of these solutions and contribute to the reduction of their operational costs in the long run.
