Posted on 8th May 2017

Dubai Municipality (DM) has signed Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) with developers Emaar and Dubai Properties Group (DPG) to expand the Dubai Lamp initiatives within their projects.


The agreement, dubbed the Green Property MoU, was signed as part of continued cooperation in the field of energy conservation.

Signed for four years, the agreement can be renewed before the end of the term on the basis of official communication between the parties.

Paolo Cervini, president of Philips Lighting, Middle East and Turkey, said: “The Dubai Lamp is an innovation that we at Philips Lighting are very proud of on a global level.

Its groundbreaking technology and unmatched energy efficiency along with its ever-growing adoption will not only bring positive change in consumer behavior, but also contribute to Dubai’s sustainability goals and its commitment to a green economy.”

As per the MoUs, the two companies will conduct feasibility studies to install Dubai Lamp in their existing and upcoming projects.

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.

Dubai Lamp is considered to be the most energy-efficient LED lamp in the world, saving 90% of electricity bills compared to the conventional lamps due to its life span of 25,000 hours.

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 Constructionweekonline news report.

Dubai Municipality and Philips Lighting are preparing for the supply of two million Dubai Lamps for residential and professional use across the city in 2017, which is expected to be increased to 10 million lamps by 2021.
