STUART G. THOMAS, professional of outstanding efficiency worldwide, with more than 30 years experience in service and FM related works, comments that special conditions should be imposed that once with the new set of regulations for energy savings announced by HH SAEED MOHAMMED al TAYER, -GM and CEO at DEWA ( Dubai Electricity and Water Authority) to be applied in the new buildings, the existent ones should fulfil some other appropriate restrictions to refer to a more careful utilisation of the devices themselves too, being advisable and necessary to act over their load factor for example.
The new set of regulations-which represent actually part II of the ones issued by DEWA- are aimed to diminish the energy consumption by 40%, also considerable improvements are going to appear in water consumption, material selection, air quality, waste usage.
Dubai, the commercial heart of the Muslim world is conspicuously a huge producer and a huge consumer as well. It is therefore clear that it should represent a major start point for applying such severe measures even if serious attention over consumption reductions has been paid for some time almost everywhere in the world. 40% actually does not mean very much, there have been discovered in the world possibilities for even larger savings, it is only to be asked if they are in accordance with the standards or not.
TOPCO Energy Saving System (TESS) offered recently the latest LED bulb where the 6 W/ 7 W/ 7,5 W one replaces succesfully the classical incandescent of 40 W/ 50 W/ 60 W. If the DEWA or other norms do not allow to use LED like the TESS suggests and which are said to assure 80% energy savings, then maybe they should be renounced and the TESS standards and codes be applied instead. Or, if the 40% comes from somewhere else and includes LEDs like TESS, more explanations about the provenience would be welcome.
Maybe the lack of enough information and explanation is the reason why OLEG ZARETSKIY makes additional comments to determine HH AL TAYER to pay atention to the necessity of applying power saving construction materials and technologies too.
Let us assume that these solicitations, suggestions, worries and questions will reach by the present thoughts soon the ones who decide in the end (HH AL TAYER, too) and room will start to be made for more understanding and more suitable configurations of our Planet.
