The Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME) has replaced the lighting system at Al Udeid Tower, which houses some of its offices, with an efficient LED system to reduce electricity consumption.
The change has been carried out in co-operation with the owner of the building.
The move is meant to rationalise the consumption of water and electricity across the different buildings from where the MME operates, it has said in a statement.
Besides the LED lights, 220 water-saving devices have been installed in water taps as part of the first stage of the rationalisation initiative, the MME has said in a statement.
These devices help reduce water consumption by around 40%, the statement points out, noting that this will eventually help reduce operational costs in the building.
