New Engineers for Old Ideas

According to Dr. Ben Hughes of the Heriot-Watt University campus in Dubai, there is a new pressure on engineers in the area to find more sustainable options for energy sources. The heavy amount of construction throughout the UAE is harmful for the environment, as it releases emissions that contain carbon dioxide. Rather than focusing all efforts on developing new sources of energy, engineers are being encouraged to look at the past. Wind towers are becoming an important aspect of the areas energy conservation efforts, and engineers experienced in this type of technology are in high demand.

Simulations of a wind generated heating and air conditioning system that utilizes modern versions of wind towers combined with patented technology that relies on solar power were very successful at the Heriot-Watt University campus in Dubai. Adapting this technology to be cost effective for the climate in the UAE will require the collective work of engineers and architects in Dubai. For engineers that have been considering looking for opportunities in Dubai, this push for sustainable and eco-friendly heating and cooling options provides a chance to get in on the ground floor of what will likely be a system the world looks when moving forward into the future of energy use. Few areas of the world are putting such a high priority and focus on renewable energy as the UAE, and Dubai is the place to be if you want to be an engineer on the cutting edge of this advanced technology.
