DUBAI AIRPORTS: Dubai Airports’ 24-day switch-off in the run-up to Earth Hour on 28 March will save an estimated 230,000 kWh in energy – enough to power an average home for approximately 15 years, which is equivalent to 159 metric tonnes of CO2 emissions. The campaign involves switching off all non-essential lights at Dubai International and Al Maktoum International at Dubai World Central for an hour daily since 5 March. The hour-long switch off does not affect essential facilities within the airport to ensure the safety and comfort of customers and smooth operations.
