A major hotel in Dubai's Media City is the latest to make the switch to energy-efficient LED lighting.
Radisson Blue Hotel has reduced its lighting energy consumption by up to 81 per cent as part of the preparations for its Reduce Carbon Footprints drive, which will take place next year.
"Lighting accounts for about 30 to 40 percent of our electric consumption,"; commented the hotel's general manager Pasquale Baiguera.
"The decision to switch to energy-efficient green light alone will reduce the equivalent of 15,300 kg of CO2 emissions per annum."
Radisson Blue Hotel worked with renewable energy specialists Greenlight-energy to make the conversion to LED lighting, which consumes less energy, lasts longer than conventional fluorescent solutions and have no toxic materials.
It follows news that restaurant chain Yoshinoya America is to install high-performance menu boards with LED backlighting provided by EcoTek Lighting in its new store.
