The Customer

Located in the heart of Dubai Marina, Grosvenor House – Dubai, a Luxury Collection Hotel of Starwood Hotels & Resorts, features two iconic 45-storey towers offering 749 rooms, suites and apartments.

Having set new standards in luxury hospitality, Grosvenor House Dubai has also earned a place of pride as a Green Key Certified hotel that has rolled out a wide range of sustainable initiatives.

From using art from waste, featuring a dedicated Green Corner to the use of LED lighting and ECO wood and implementing a Green Programme, Grosvenor House - Dubai is at the forefront in championing sustainable initiatives in the hospitality sector of the Emirate.

As part of its commitment to promote energy use efficiency, minimise carbon dioxide emissions and create a sustainable built environment, Grosvenor House – Dubai chose GE's LED lighting solutions for both common area and guestrooms exclusively.

The result of the green initiative has been significant with impressive savings in project cost, energy usage, maintenance cost and carbon dioxide emissions.

The Challenge

Grosvenor House – Dubai was seeking a lighting solution that not only complements their architectural and interior design aesthetics but also fits with its ‘green policy.' In addition to providing the desirable lighting levels that maximise guest convenience, the hotel also aimed at reducing carbon emissions and improving all-round sustainability.

The key challenge in the project was to ensure that a diverse selection of LED lighting solutions had to be provided to substitute the halogen lamps.

In all, more than 24,500 halogen lamps were identified in the lighting audit, which had to be upgraded to LED by taking into consideration the unparalleled aesthetics of the property.

The Solution

GE Lighting stepped up to the challenge by partnering with Grosvenor House Dubai in offering sustainable LED lighting solutions. As the pioneer in LED technology, GE's extensive lighting solutions were an ideal fit to the hotel's requirements.

Proven to provide up to 80 per cent energy saving compared to traditional lamps, GE Lighting's LED solutions also offer high lumen/watt efficiency, long-rated lifetime, low failure rate and assures maintenance savings.

GE Lighting provided its Energy Smart range that is remarkable for its ability to set the desired ambience while saving energy. Today, the hotel's unparalleled lighting aesthetics is also supported by GE Lighting's LED solutions.

Results and Benefits

The total energy savings per year through the LED lighting solutions is around 80% with an 18 month of payback.

Pam Wilby, General Manager of the Grosvenor House, said: “Setting standards in environmental sustainability is a core commitment at Grosvenor House - Dubai; it is also one of our key differentiators in the industry. We adopt and maintain world-class environmental standards and develop the required mechanisms for implementing them in line with the vision of both the Government of Dubai and Starwood Hotels & Resorts. Adopting LED lighting solutions was therefore a natural fit to our sustainability goals. GE Lighting's LED solutions deliver significant energy savings in addition to minimising carbon dioxide emissions. A perfect choice for a green hotel, indeed.”
