Together with 25 energy use experts in the UK, Belgium, Netherlands, Middle East and South Africa, Al-Karim delivers energy efficiency and demand side reduction projects for industrial companies, utilities, multilateral banks and governments to help decarbonize and make organisations more energy efficient.

Did you know?
The EU has set itself a 20 percent energy savings target by 2020. This is roughly equivalent to turning off 400 power stations. But providing a clean reliable energy supply is a tough challenge. One that requires innovative thinking on balancing supply and demand.
