Abu Dhabi is saving nearly $1m a year thanks to low-energy lighting

A sustainable lighting strategy in Abu Dhabi, including the introduction of LED streetlighting, is saving the emirate AED 3,286,229 ($895,000) a year.

The city is taking dramatic steps to try and cut the cost of its public lighting by 60-75 per cent by 2020 – by reducing energy use by at least 60 per cent, and maintenance costs by 40–80 per cent. It also aims to  reduce light pollution by 60 per cent.

It plans to switch all of its 35,000 streetlights to LED.

Since the sustainable lighting plan was first devised in 2011 by Abu Dhabi's lighting expert Martin Valentine, the municipality has carried out a number of lighting upgrades, including LED lighting on Sheikh Zayed Street, which cut energy use by 85 per cent, a trial of LED streetlighting in the city's East Sector 48, new lighting in the Sheikh Zayed Tunnel, which cut energy use by 86 per cent, new decorative lighting on Sheikh Zayed Bridge, and new lighting underneath a number of the city's bridges, including Al Jawazat Bridge, Al Saada Bridge and Al Muroor Bridge.

The city has also produced a handbook for public realm and streetlighting , which is being made available free for the benefit of local lighting professionals.

My names are Ashley Vivian, Am here to share a testimony on how Dr Raypower helped me. After 1/5 year relationship with my boyfriend, he changed suddenly and stopped contacting me regularly, he would come up with excuses of not seeing me all the time. He stopped answering my calls and my sms and he stopped seeing me regularly. I then started catching him with different girls several times but every time he would say that he love me and that he needed some time to think about our relationship. But cannot stop thinking about him so i decided to go online and i saw so many good talk about this spell caster called Dr Raypower and i contact him and explain my problems to him. He cast a love spell for me which i use and after 24 hours, my boyfriend came back to me and started contacting me regularly and we moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends. We eventually got married and we now have been married happily for 3 years with a son. Ever since Dr Raypower helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before.You can also contact this spell caster and get your relationship fix Email: Urgentspellcast@gmail.com or Urgentspellcast@yahoo.com see more reviews about him on his website: http://urgentspellcast.website2.me Call or WhatsApp: +1 (424) 330-8109 also view his blog: https://urgentpowerfullovespell.blogspot.com/
