Sharaf DG Energy initiative to save Dubai Healthcare City AED 550k annually
The scope of the project provided a smart car parking solution across all DHCC blocks, which now manages the entire supply, installation and maintenance of high-quality LED energy saving lighting solutions
Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC) has adopted an energy-conservation initiative with the help of Sharaf DG Energy. In just 30 days, the Dubai-based solar energy and lighting company retrofitted DHCC’s entire parking area.
The scope of the project provided a smart car parking solution across all DHCC blocks, which now manages the entire supply, installation and maintenance of high-quality LED energy saving lighting solutions. The outcome of the development has been tremendous and has significantly reduced DHCC’s electricity consumption by 1,237,745 kWh (equivalent to AED 550,000 annual savings).
Sanjay Dabur, vice-president of Strategic Business, Sharaf DG, said: “We are delighted with the result of this initiative. Not only have we surpassed client expectations, but we have exceeded the proposed energy savings by delivering a 30% extra on savings after just one year of operation.”
“This project not only positions DHCC as a technology-driven brand, but also prevents unnecessary energy wastage. DHCC’s annual savings are the equivalent to offsetting 875 metric tons of harmful CO2 emissions, and planting over 14,000 trees. Thus, as a collective, we are saving the planet.”
The scheme is based on retrofitting, a measure taken to replace redundant light fittings and accessories with new energy saving LED lights. Retrofitting drastically reduces electricity yet remains extremely ecologically-sound as it does not contain any toxic compounds or elements such as mercury.
Additionally, LED lighting is an efficient process that converts 80-90% of energy to light rather than heat. It lasts up to 100,000 hours, providing a cleaner and greener tomorrow. The lighting can also be controlled to provide the perfect color, shade, and brightness due to its flexible application. Therefore, DHCC is able to uplift and energise the moods of their patients and customers.
