Doha 1st September 2013 : A new educational park of Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (Kahramaa) in Al Thumama which is under construction will be available to public in mid-2014, according to reports.

 

The Park will provide awareness for residents on electricity and water conservation. It will also feature a number of other facilities. An auditorium for screening documentary films on energy rationalization will be built on the park.

The Kahramaa’s awareness park won Qatar Sustainability Assessment System (QSAS) award in 2011 for meeting all technical specifications and requirements put up by a committee set up to select the winner.

The park features a design that minimise obstruction of daylight, providing landscape that encourages green and fights desertification, applying efficient lighting, cooling, plumbing and irrigation systems as well as using solar energy to heat and treat grey water.
