Dubai To Convert All Lighting To LED

Dubai Municipality, one of the main administrative departments of the Emirate of Dubai government, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Philips to convert all of the municipality’s lighting to LED. The agreement embraces all 262 of the municipality’s buildings, including city government offices, schools, public buildings such as courts and sports venues, and transportation buildings.
