Azizi Developments will become an active promoter of the world’s most efficient lamp
Azizi Developments and Dubai Municipality have agreed to install the ‘Dubai Lamp’ in all of the property developers new and existing properties.
Both organisations claim the lighting system is the most efficient lamp in the world and can provide 90% savings on lighting bills and lasts 25 times longer than conventional lamps. The lighting is also mercury and toxic-free, with no ultra-violet emission – making it completely eco-friendly.
The agreement was signed at the Dubai Municipality in the presence of Engr. Hussain Nasser Lootah, Acting Director General of Dubai Municipality, and Fawad Azizi, Deputy CEO of Azizi Developments.
“The UAE has made great strides in driving a sustainable economy by transforming the way energy is consumed,” said Farhad Azizi, CEO, Azizi Developments. “The government has adopted real initiatives that will positively impact the way developers and residents consume electricity over the next few years.”
He added: “In this regard, Dubai Lamps is a pioneering initiative that will help tremendously reduce household consumption of electricity over the next few years. Azizi Developments fully supports this and aims to become an active promoter of Dubai Lamps by installing them across our properties in the UAE – thus driving the UAE government’s vision for long-term sustainability.”
According to Dubai Municipality, replacing 100 lamps in each household will result in savings of 7,700 kWh per year and an additional 3,000 kWh on AC consumption. This is a total saving of AED4,000 per year on a DEWA bill. Dubai Municipality anticipates that by replacing 10 million lamps by 2020, Dubai will save over AED398 million per year and 1,072 GWh per year on electricity.
The developer said it is also exploring sustainable building design elements across its new portfolio of projects, to minimise the effects of indoor greenhouse gases, boost air quality and reduce occupants’ need for air conditioning.
