Context : lighting municipal parks and children’s playgrounds with autonomous solar solutions 

 

12 parks to be lit by solar solutions

 

The Municipality of Dubai is one of the largest developers of solar street lighting systems in the United Arab Emirates. Recently, they decided to build 12 parks, with children’s playgrounds in the city’s main residential areas. Often exploited at night by families due to extreme weather conditions in summer, they are very popular. Dubai has a mission: to be a city at the forefront in terms of renewable energy. Thus, it is obvious that the parks could only be lit by solar energy.

Sunna Design solutions reduce CO2 emissions in cities

 

Initially, a competing solution was proposed with flexible solar panels surrounded around each mast. The fact that the solar panels are surrounded around a mast offers a lower performance rate compared to rigid solar panels. At the same time, this solution uses Lithium batteries. In addition, the use of lithium battery powered solutions in high temperature countries such as Dubai should not be allowed to operate in extreme temperature conditions due to the poor performance of lithium.

Problems : Lighting parks with clean energy with careful design of our solar street lights

 

A people-centred design

 

Sunna Design Totems illuminate urban projects oriented towards the well-being of citizens with solar energy.

 

At the same time, the streetlights were harmoniously designed in the city and had to be harmoniously integrated into these parks. The Dubai municipality therefore chose products from the Totem range. Dubai is an environment subject to sand winds. The totems are designed with vertical solar panels integrated into the mast which strongly limits silting and therefore optimizes the product’s energy production.

 

These 92 Totems is a project in the first phase of a larger project.

Vertical design

 

Totems streetlights from Sunna Design integrate vertical panels, they are “all in one”. Thus, they strongly limit silting and therefore the need for cleaning. In addition, the NiMH battery with high resistance to extreme temperatures, which guarantees 10 years of operation without battery replacement.
