UAE's DC Pro opens two new offices in Australia

SYDNEY, October 23, 2017

DC Pro Engineering, a leading UAE-based engineering consultancy firm, has expanded its operations in the Asia-Pacific region with the opening of two new offices in Australia at Perth and Melbourne.

These offices will help service the growing demand from businesses and entities across the country for a push towards renewable energy, said a statement from the company.        

Renewables are earmarked as a key driver in Australia’s energy future as the country transitions away from fossil fuels to cleaner, greener energy in line with its commitment to cut carbon emissions under the terms of the Paris Agreement signed by almost all the world’s countries in 2015 to tackle climate change, it stated.

New research from the Australia Institute suggests that the best way for the country to meet its goal of reducing emissions by as much as 28 per cent is to ensure 66 per cent of its energy comes from renewable sources by 2030.

DC Pro Engineering said through these new offices the company will work in tandem with public and private entities spanning the east west electricity grids, to adapt latest technological innovations and new approaches to meet energy distribution, generation and storage to meet the needs of Australian consumers.

CEO George Berbari said: "Renewables are on the way to becoming the dominant source of energy across the globe. Governments are now aware that global warming is a real threat and are now focusing on sustainability."

"The Australian government has pledged to cut its greenhouse gas emissions significantly by 2030, and DC Pro Engineering identified a way in which we could contribute to this vision that embodies our approach," stated Berbari.

"Australia is just one of many territories where we have identified growth opportunities, but the main reason DC Pro Engineering has opened offices in Australia is to be part of the country’s green vision and journey and to share our expertise," he said.

"District energy technologies will play an increasingly important role in energy storage and conservation given the intermittent nature of renewable energy sources, and this is one area where DC Pro Engineering will excel," he added.

Marcus Wearing-Smith, the representative of DC Pro Australia, said: "District energy systems are being considered as a necessary component of Australia’s energy future. The emergence of Renewable Energy Micro Grids is essential to cater for the geographically disparate energy profile of the Australian continent."

"Traditional electricity grids are failing. DC Pro’s experience is directly aligned with the new energy regime emerging in Australia," noted Wearing-Smith.

"The company has the in-depth knowledge and experience of energy efficiency precinct and district systems combined with an exceptional understanding of enhanced HVAC systems applied to cooling dominant environments," he added.

Direct Energy Australia, an established engineering firm offering services to government and private enterprises, will partner with DC Pro Engineering on office co-ordination and client liaison.-TradeArabia News Service
