Light Middle East 2015 – Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, 
6 – 8 October 2015, (Booth H1-D21, Hall 1) 

Dubai, United Arab Emirates (October 5, 2015) - Lutron Electronics, the global lighting, shade and temperature control expert, is presenting its comprehensive range of energy management and control solutions at Light Middle East 2015. Lutron’s energy saving products offer smart solutions for the cost effective control and Facility Management of commercial environments such as corporate buildings and offices, thus leading to significant cost savings for new developments as well as renovation projects. 

Workplace lighting can impede business growth. In most office buildings, lighting accounts for around 39% of annual electricity use. The figures climb higher in specialized settings such as healthcare facilities (43%) and hotels (55%). As energy costs rise, creating an energy-efficient workplace becomes an increasing priority for business. 

A whole building solution helps companies reach full energy efficiency. The New York Times cut $600,000 from its annual lighting costs after installing the Lutron Quantum® system. After installing EcoSystem®, a Houston building saved $50,000 on its electric lighting bill, and saw a $16,000 reduction in air conditioning expenses. Reducing uncomfortable hotspots and glare also improves personnel's productivity. 

Light control also decreases HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) energy costs. Lutron shading systems reduce the amount of solar heat gain that enters a space while reducing glare. Shades can also be controlled by Hyperion®, Lutron’s solution to automatically adjust shades based on the sun’s position throughout the day, taking into account the season, building location and façade.

Dimming lights is the perfect start to saving energy. A single Lutron dimmer saves a business more than $85 annually, which can quickly represent several thousand dollars of savings in large-size commercial developments. Furthermore, Lutron’s commercial dimmers are designed to last at least 10 years. Upgrading to dimmers not only improves the comfort of work space, it improves the return on investment as well. 

Mr. Shadi Kharouf, Lutron Sales Director for Middle East, Turkey and Central Asia, said: “With the regional focus on developing smart and sustainable knowledge economies, energy management and cost savings are quickly rising to the top of the corporate agenda in the Middle East. Lutron’s range of solutions for lighting, shade and temperature control, such as our Quantum Vue Facility Management software for Smart Buildings, helps optimize the corporate environment, and creates efficient - and energy efficient - workplaces whilst reducing costs.”
