A campaign to
Deploy 10 Billion
The United Arab Emirates is keen to play an important role within the Global Lighting Challenge by replacing conventional lighting systems in the federal network roads with advanced light-emitting diode technology. The aim is to reduce the amount of energy consumed in lighting and lower carbon dioxide emissions. Large efforts are already in place to replace conventional lighting in the UAE with high efficiency LED lights.
The UAE is working on replacing all conventional lighting along its 710 km of federal road network installing a total of 30,810 LED light fixtures. In the emirate of Dubai, a program is being implemented to replace 75% of existing street and park lights with LED by 2030, while the emirate of Abu Dhabi has already replaced a total of 6,274 fixtures by 2014 achieving an average reduction in lighting consumption of over 80%, and is aiming to continue replacing all the city’s inner sector roads.
