HE the Minister of Energy and Industry Dr. Mohammed bin Saleh al-Sada  affirmed here yesterday Qatar’s commitment to the adoption of strategies and programmes to encourage rationalisation of electricity consumption so as to enhance the efficiency of energy use. He was speaking on Arab Energy Efficiency Day.

He called on citizens and residents to participate in the national campaign for rationalisation and promotion of the efficiency in the use of water and electricity to achieve sustainable development and to support efforts aimed at preserving the environment.

Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (Kahramaa) is committed to meet the country’s electricity and water requirements at the highest levels of reliability and efficiency, said Kahramaa president Issa bin Hilal al-Kuwari.

He said the proper use and conservation of energy and water resources would lead to sustainable development and help cope with economic, urban, and social development in Qatar.

“Individuals and corporations have a responsibility to promote and increase energy efficiency throughout the country,” he said.

The president also urged the country’s residents to make the national campaign for the conservation and efficient use of water and electricity ‘Tarsheed’ a success.

The steady rise in population owing to development has contributed to a corresponding increase in the requirement for water and electricity and one needs to be extremely careful in conserving water and energy resources in order to maintain adequate quantities of both for the coming generations, said the senior engineer.

“We endeavour to promote the awareness of nationals and expatriates on energy efficiency and the severe impacts of waste and irrational use on sustainable development. We welcome all positive initiatives in this context,” he said.
