Energy Management Services (EMS), the first energy management solutions provider in the Middle East, today announced a partnership with Greenlight-Energy, a light-emitting diodes (LEDs) systems company, to install lighting devices that will reduce energy consumption at the EMS offices by 63 per cent.

This initiative will allow EMS to save energy, cut costs and provide an eco-friendly environment within its premises. Expected to last up to at least 50 000 hours, LEDs do not contain harmful chemicals such as mercury, emit significantly less heat than normal lights, and reduce the burden of already crowded landfills.

"The measure comes from our belief that eco-friendly habits at the workplace significantly help businesses implement a relentless energy conservation drive. It is also one of the best ways to reduce consumption of energy without impacting the working environment,"? said Khaled Bushnaq, CEO of EMS.

With long-term estimates of LED efficacy at 150-200 lumens per watt, white LEDs offer lighting professionals significant benefits especially for ambient settings.

"LED lighting is considered eco-friendly and can significantly contribute towards reducing fossil fuel depletion and carbon dioxide emissions. While LED lighting causes zero environmental concern when it comes to disposing the product (unlike fluorescent bulbs), the installation of the lights in working environments will boost employee morale in the knowledge that they are doing their part for the preservation of the environment. Plus, LED lights are more cost-effective than traditional lighting,"? said Robert Viehweger, general manager of Greenlight-Energy.
