Customer Challenge

The retrofit of the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority’s (DEWA’s) power stations was aiming to greatly reduce energy consumption, and to make Dubai’s built environment a leading example of energy efficiency for the region and the world. DEWA needed a solution that would not only provide sustainable lighting and energy savings, but also offer a retrofit that would not disturb plant operations.

The right lighting


The focus for Philips was twofold: The right lighting solutions to provide comfortable lux levels while lso focusing on reducing energy consumption, and developing a sustainable lighting solution for the plans for the long-term duration of the project. Additionally, Philips had to be able to guarantee these energy savings and lighting levels.


Philips guaranteed lux levels in all areas, and committed to conducting maintenance and upkeep on all new LED lighting systems over the next five years. As such, annual checks and measurements of all fixtures and lux levels are undertaken. Should any fitting not match guaranteed lighting levels, Philips will take corrective actions, and any failed luminaire will be replaced. These measurements are overseen by dedicated project management from Philips, and continuously monitored by a Certified Measurement and Verification Professional to ensure the guaranteed energy savings and lux levels throughout the course of the project.
