Dubai, UAE, 15 March 2018: Swiss International Scientific School in Dubai (SISD) has achieved their low-energy target, owing to the installation of LED lights, said Beat Sommer, Head of School, SISD.
Speaking on the development, Sommer said: “The installation of the LED lighting, supplied by France-based Switch Made, has enabled us to achieve our energy target. We believe that social, cultural, economic and environmental awareness prepares us to play our part in shaping a better future for ourselves. Our school campus is eco-friendly, using less energy to deliver a more comfortable, healthier environment.”
Sommer added that while educating the students is a priority, it is also vitally important for the school to offer students a comfortable and healthy interior climate.
Explaining the change in the energy usage, Sommer said, “We have reduced our wattage consumption from 6.01w/msq to 3.76w/msq by optimising energy consumption of fixtures away from the windows and switching off the light fixtures near them using photocells.”
Jeremy Loisel, CEO, Switch Made, said, “Our partnership in driving energy-efficient lighting at SISD is another strong example of our expertise in promoting sustainable built-environments through highly energy-efficient LED lighting solutions – an example of sustainability in action.”
