Emaar, DPG to install Dubai Lamp in upcoming projects

DUBAI, May 7, 2017

Dubai Municipality has signed agreements with two major real estate developers Emaar and Dubai Properties Group (DPG) to boost co-operation in the field of energy conservation, said a report.

As per the memoranda of understanding (MoUs), the duo will install the energy-efficient LED Dubai Lamp - that saves 90 per cent of electricity bill compared to the conventional lamps due to its life span of 25,000 hours - in all of their upcoming projects, according to state news agency Wam.

The first MoU was signed by Hussain Nasser Lootah, the director-general of Dubai Municipality and Ahmed Al Matrooshi, member of the board of directors at Emaar, while the second one was signed by Khalid Sharif Al Awadhi, the assistant director-general of Dubai Municipality for Environment, Health and Safety Control Sector and Abdulla Mohammed Lahej, the chief executive of DPG.

As per the four-year deal, Dubai Municipality will coordinate with the other parties in installing Dubai Lamp in their buildings and facilities as well as in conducting studies to evaluate the savings achieved through the installation of Dubai lamps in their projects, said the report.

These agreements can be renewed before the end of the term on the basis of official communication between the parties, it stated.

The municipality's Applied Sustainability and Renewable Energy Department has worked on this unique initiative through a partnership between Dubai Municipality and Philips, which is the largest manufacturer of LED lamps, according to Wam.

Paolo Cervini, the president of Philips Lighting, Middle East and Turkey, lauded Emaar and DPG for its collaboration with Dubai Municipality on the Dubai Lamp Initiative.

Philips Lighting will be working with Dubai Municipality to supply two million Dubai Lamps for residential and professional use across the city this year, which is expected to be increased to 10 million lamps by 2021.
