Fi­nance cen­tre shines bright with LEDs

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

Tra­di­tional light­bulbs are to be phased out across the Dubai In­ter­na­tional Fi­nan­cial Cen­tre and be re­placed with LEDs, as part of ef­forts to go green. Some 28,500 lights, in­clud­ing street light­ing, will be swapped for brighter and more en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly al­ter­na­tives. DIFC and the Eti­had En­ergy Ser­vice Com­pany signed the deal yes­ter­day. It is es­ti­mated to im­prove en­ergy ef­fi­ciency and sus­tain­abil­ity, and ac­cord­ing to the con­tract, DIFC will achieve 72 per cent on light­ing in an­nual sav­ings over six years. The fi­nan­cial cen­tre is home to 1,445 reg­is­tered com­pa­nies, with a work­force of 19,808 em­ploy­ees, due to triple by 2024.
