Kuwait's Ministry of Water and Electricity is planning to use new technology to cool newly constructed areas, said an official here Thursday.

Assistant Undersecretary at the Kuwaiti ministry Dr. Mash'an Al-Otaibi told KUNA on the sideline of the Fifth Annual Middle East District Cooling Summit that the ministry was working on plans to cool areas such as Khairan city and future towns to be constructed in Kuwait.

The official revealed that the new cooling technology, if executed correctly, will reduce power consumption in Kuwait by 50 percent.
He indicated that cities like Khairan will be using around 4,000 megawatts of electricity, noting that the new technology will reduce power consumption to 2,000 megawatts. The plan will save around KD 11 billion in expenditure, said Al-Otaibi.

Al-Otaibi said that the new technology would reduce the emissions of Carbon Dioxdie (CO2) and it would have many other environmental benefits.

Saudi Arabia and Qatar are using such technologies in their new city projects, said Al-Otaibi who revealed that electrical consumption by 60 to 70 percent.
The Fifth Annual Middle East District Cooling Summit, which began last Monday, is attended by 400 participants representing 20 countries.
