Empower has successfully completed 10 years of its operations in December 2013. Over the last decade, Empower has seen a consistent level of growth. It recently acquired Palm Utilities and Palm District Cooling, considered as one of the largest ever acquisition in the district cooling industry, transforming Empower into the world’s largest district cooling services provider in terms of capacity.
