Moreover, Singapore’s Housing & Development Board (HDB) is leveraging computer simulations and analytics to plan & design towns to organically cool urban areas and improve air quality, in alignment to meet sustainability goals. As well as developing smart-enabled flats so residents can seamlessly integrate various smart home devices.
Value for Dubai
Should the Dubai Metro and Tram expand similar to Singapore's, all residents would have access to public transport within 10 minutes. This would drastically reduce private transport, and improve the quality of life by slashing countless hours spent in traffic congestion, as well as CO2 emissions, in alignment with the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy.
Furthermore, by leveraging the latest simulation and smart planning tools, Dubai will benefit by designing urban areas to organically reduce heat and enrich air quality, which will cut down air conditioning costs and improve air quality for residents. Smart home systems, with an energy-management system integrated as standard in homes, will likewise help residents cut down on their DEWA bills, helping them save costs and reduce energy expenditure.
