Emirates National Oil Company Group (ENOC), the Official Integrated Energy Partner of Expo 2020 Dubai, has won ten accolades last year for its Service Station of the Future, demonstrating its commitment to sustainability, innovation and design in the energy sector.
ENOC’s sustainable and architecturally unique station, shaped in the form of the UAE’s national tree, the Ghaf, is inspired by the country’s rich heritage and traditions. Marking a true innovation in fuel retail, it is also the first station in the region to incorporate an on-grid wind turbine for power generation and carbon fiber in constructing its canopy. It features digital signage in the station consisting of 12 million LED chips that illuminate digital screens onsite and other features such as electric-vehicle chargers and multi-media interactive advanced dispensers.
The Service Station of the Future won “The Architecture MasterPrize 2021” for its quality architectural design and the “Sustainable Project of the Year” and “Innovation In Design” awards from Design Middle East Awards.
Last year, the RetailME Awards recognized the Service Station with the “Most Admired Store Design of the Year” and “Most Admired Retail Concept of the Year” titles. It was also honored by MEED Projects Awards 2021 as MENA Winner for Small Project of the Year, National Winner for Oil & Gas Project of the Year and Bronze – Sustainability Medal.
The list of recognitions is followed by the recent win of the prestigious award for the “Best New Retail Forecourt 2021” at the Asia Pacific Enterprise Awards and the “Corporate Social Responsibility Award” at the 2021 Idea of the Year Awards.
“We are pleased with the awards and recognitions we received so far for ENOC’s Service Station of the Future, which is currently serving the logistical needs of Expo 2020 Dubai. The service station showcases our commitment to sustainability, innovation and design within the country’s energy sector, demonstrating our continuous support to help the nation realize its long-term vision.”
Opened at the Expo 2020 Dubai site in February last year, the Service Station of the Future also received the LEED platinum certification, an internationally recognized building certification system from the US Green Building Council, making it the first platinum-certified station in the world.
The Service Station of the Future is currently serving the entire Expo 2020 fleet. It is expected to serve members of the public at District 2020 as part of Expo’s lasting sustainable legacy after its doors close in March.
