Under the patronage of HH the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation (Kahramaa) is all set to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the National Programme for Conservation and Energy Efficiency (Tarsheed) at the Kahramaa Awareness Park (KAP) on April 24 with the slogan “one promise, one journey’’.
This celebration will be graced by the presence of HE the Prime Minister and Interior Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa al-Thani, HE the Minister of Energy and Industry Dr Mohamed bin Saleh al-Sada, Kahramaa’s president and senior engineer Essa bin Hilal al- Kuwari, other dignitaries, diplomats, high level officials from government and private sectors, schoolchildren, stakeholders’ representatives and others.
Through the celebration, Kahramaa will announce the official opening of the KAP and its further strategies, projects and achieved targets for the ongoing programme. Kahramaa, through Tarsheed, aims at rationalising the consumption of water and electricity and intensify the culture of conservation of vital resources in Qatar.
Kahramaa will also felicitate the winners (individual and corporate) of the three competitions organised by its Conservation and Energy Efficiency Department.
During the event, Kahramaa will announce Tarsheed’s new roadmap to achieve the objectives set out by Qatar National Vision 2030 and extended National Development Strategy.
The programme, which was initiated as a National campaign for Efficient Use of Water and Electricity, was launched for five years in 2012 on Earth Day, which falls every year on April 22.
Tarsheed, through its strategies and programmes, aims at reaching all segments of the society to create awareness for conserving the precious resources.
Kahramaa has also joined hands with a number of organisations including schools to give impetus to the programme for its successful implementation across the country. It has also signed 54 MoUs with various organisations to implement its objectives and help inculcate and extend a conservation culture in Qatar to preserve country’s vital resources and reduce carbon emissions for the sake of the environment.
Kahramaa has also appealed to all residents of Qatar to take an active role in the programme, by adhering to the country’s conservation laws and regulations.
