Inspiring Eco-Urban: Kahramaa launches sixth 'Conserving Building Competition'.

QATAR General Electricity and Water Corporation (Kahramaa) has launched the sixth edition of 'Conserving Building Competition' under the theme 'Inspiring Eco-Urban' and as one of the initiatives of the National Program for Conservation and Energy Efficiency (Tarsheed). All entries for the competition should be submitted through Tarsheed page on Kahramaa website after reviewing the terms and conditions and filling in the registration form. It is open for all buildings in government, residential, commercial, industrial, hospitality and sport sectors, according to a press statement by Kahramaa. The competition is meant to create awareness about the building conservation concept in society, create public awareness on the benefits of building conservation practices (energy and water), mobilise people and encourage them to embrace energy conservation strategies and motivate consumers to adopt building conservation practices in the local construction market, the statement said. The buildings will be evaluated in several phases by a panel of experts based on criteria developed by experts, such as HVAC system, lighting, plumbing fixtures, landscape, operation and maintenance practices, building energy management, building automation, sustainability measures, specific energy/water consumption and building insulation. Winners will be announced and honoured at Tarsheed 6th Annual Celebration to be held in April. 'Conserving buildings' are buildings that reduce electricity and water consumption, carbon emissions, and provide better living for residents in Qatar, Kahramaa further stated. (QNA)
