Municipality Donates 100,000 Lamps To Dubai’s Government Housing Projects
(20 June 2017)


Dubai Municipality has donated 100,000 lamps for Dubai housing projects, as part of the municipality #Year of Giving initiatives.

The move is part of the municipality’s community responsibility to serve the nation and contribute to its development process, said Ahmed Saeed Al Badwawi, Director of Applied Sustainability and Renewable Energy Department. The lamps represent unique innovation in terms of environmentally friendly specifications, and do not contain mercury and heavy toxins. They also do not produce ultraviolet rays or generate heat, thus reducing the electric load on air conditioning, Al Badawi said.

"The lamps will be provided and distributed over the coming years free of charge for the benefit of the local community. The initiative includes studying lighting needs in residential areas and replacing the four old types of lamps, in coordination with the donor organisation. The savings that will be achieved from the initiative of distributing 100,000 lamps in the housing projects will be AED4,000,000 during the year, and 10,700,000 kWh of energy per year in addition to 6,400 tons of carbon dioxide emissions," he said.

He said the Dubai Plan 2030 aims to reduce the non-clean energy by 30 percent, equivalent to 1000 GW per year and carbon emissions by 16 percent by 2021 and protecting the environment using clean energy in the emirate. "Dubai lamp serves this strategy by reducing energy consumption by 90 percent and will reduce an amount of 640 kilo tons of carbon dioxide emissions until 2021," said Al Badwawi.

Al Badwawi said main feature of the lamp is that it comes in three types: 1, 2 and 3 watt bulbs instead of 20-60 watts, which consume high energy for lighting.

"The lamp works more efficiently and that it will reduce energy consumption according to the available size. The cost of the lamp is competitive and the lamps are currently available in the market. The average lifespan of the lamp is up to 25 years," he added.

Al Badwawi stressed that Dubai Lamp is one of the future accelerators. "The initiative aims to reduce energy demand and carbon dioxide emissions and is a global model of innovation and creativity in energy and lighting," he said.
