Expotrade announces Middle East Smart Lighting & Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi this November
On the 5-6 November 2012 high-level experts and decision-makers driving the evolution of energy efficient lighting systems throughout the Middle East will convene at the Middle East Smart Lighting & Energy Summit
From construction and product development, to architectural and urban lighting, Middle East Smart Lighting & Energy Summit will provide the most up-to-date information on the case studies, solutions and companies driving this fast growing market.
Join over 200 senior professionals committed to the deployment of innovative, intelligent and energy-efficient lighting solutions. In-depth and unique case studies, a comprehensive exhibition of the most innovative solutions and industry-recognised speakers make the Middle East Smart Lighting & Energy Summit the leading intelligent lighting event of 2012.
Lighting consumes 19% of all electricity in the world. As governments and municipalities focus on increasing energy efficiency, the different lighting sources and systems being applied come under scrutiny. By adding intelligence to lighting, energy consumption and carbon emissions will be reduced significantly.
In UAE itself the population and urban development continue to grow at a record pace, the emphasis on energy efficient solution becomes increasingly important, for governments and municipalities. Lighting systems, sources and controls used for roads transport infrastructure, public buildings such sports stadiums and shopping malls, and private buildings are being optimized to meet the regulatory demands and standardization.
With hundreds of urban development projects and new buildings coming to fruition within the next 5 years, it is essential that lighting systems and sources chosen are intelligent.
Recently in China more than 1.9 million LED lights were installed in over 20,000 street lights. This was the largest municipal intelligent lighting control projects which included 16 miles of highway, 119 streets and 1 tunnel. The installation resulted in electricity savings of approx USD 3 million and 17.6 million kWh. The lights were installed with 1.9 million Cree XLamp XP-E and XP-G LEDs in an effort to improve living conditions for local citizens and to meet China’s stringent roadway lighting requirements for light efficacy, brightness, luminance, heat dissipation, and service lifespan.
Middle East Smart Lighting & Energy Summit will explore the different opportunities in Smart & Intelligent Lighting, offering you all the information that you need to make the most informed decision for your project. Join your peers and meet the leaders of this rapidly evolving market.
