Philips Lighting has partnered with the Dubai Municipality to launch the “world’s most sustainable LED lamp”, which has been developed for residential and professional use across the city by 2017. Announced at the Water, Energy, Technology and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) in Dubai on Wednesday (5 October), the “Dubai Lamp initiative” will see two million of the world’s first commercially available 200 lumen-per-watt LED lamps installed across the city over the next 12 months. The initiative, which will increase the rollout to 10 million lamps by 2021, is expected to reduce household and enterprise energy use by up to 90%. Philips could eventually replace around 80% of the conventional bulbs in the city with the Dubai lamps – which can last up to 15 years longer.
