The biggest install base of any technology on the planet is not smartphones, it’s lighting. As LED technology has progressed, giving lights a lifespan of up to 20 years, the ability to embed sensors in those lights is going to change how our homes, offices, and cities work. GE’s 130+ year old business is becoming a data platform that will be a source of unbelievable innovation and new apps/services in the near future.
GE is a world leader in the innovation, design, production and application of energy-efficient LED solutions, and now we are connecting them with state-of-the-art software to unleash a whole new potential for how we light our world.
Lighting technology has come a long way over the last few years, and lighting as we know it today will continue to rapidly change. The commercial market segment is undergoing a dramatic transformation, swiftly moving toward LED. In the future, integrated LED lighting systems will undoubtedly be at the forefront of lighting technology. LED fixtures and controls will illuminate when needed, while sensing environmental parameters that deliver desired outcomes, delight users and optimize assets.
GE is committed to bringing best in class and high quality products to the region that support the region’s transition to energy efficient products and solutions.
For more than 20 years, GE has offered a wide range of energy efficient lighting solutions in the Middle East. GE’s Lighting business is a leader in light-emitting diode (LED) technology, which provides the right quantity and quality of light at significant energy savings. A focus on energy efficiency in lighting is a growing trend in the Middle East and North Africa — more and more major markets in the region are choosing LEDs.
In the UAE, Grosvenor House, one of Dubai’s most architecturally compelling hospitality projects, serves as a model for the region by setting a new trend in environmental sustainability. GE Lighting partnered with the hotel to supply its LED lighting solutions which offer around 80% energy savings per year.
In Saudi Arabia, GE Lighting partnered with NICE Store in Dammam to offer GE’s eco-friendly LED lighting solution that not only complements their ambience but also creates a positive consumer experience together with low power consumption.
In Turkey, GE partnered with Çankaya University to replace their original outdoor lighting system with GE’s LED solutions to drive energy efficiency. The offered solutions deliver a 46% saving when compared to conventional ceramic metal halide solutions, totaling 63,875 Kwhr per annum alongside a 100% improvement in maintenance costs and a total of 57% cut in operational costs.
Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) were invented by GE scientists in the 1960s and since then we have established an outstanding track record in designing and building award winning commercial LED lighting solutions.
