Meraas Discovery Gardens

When we first approached the client about conducting an energy conservation study at their buildings in the Discovery Gardens, they were skeptical of the results due to prior unfavorable experiences. Nevertheless, they were convinced to have us started with auditing only one of the buildings to explore the potential. Upon seeing the calculated savings and impressive payback (less than 6 months), they agreed to extend the implementation scope from one building to four buildings of different types. The implementation was financed by the client themselves and implemented via a contractor under the supervision of Griffin Consultants. With the success of the first 4 pilot buildings, Meraas extended our scope to cover all 59 buildings owned and operated by them at Discovery Gardens. The project was concluded in May 2019 with the total savings amounting to ~4,600 MWh or 3,250 equivalent Tons of CO2. The project also resulted in significant improvement to the indoor air quality and humidity issues. The actual verified annual energy savings are: 15% chilled water annual savings: 3,411,763 ton-hr/ yr 25% electricity annual savings: 1,529,903 kWh/ yr 16% combined annual cost savings: 2,860,605 AED/yr Payback: less than 6 months
