Dubai Municipality has taken the initiative of implementing the thermal insulation systems in buildings in Dubai which will eventually help in saving energy. The idea of using thermal insulation in buildings is very well known long time ago. However, the distinguished teqnique followed by DM in implementing the system helped to large extent in success of its use. The Municipality has used different means such as regulations, advertising campaign ,conferences , and seminars that helped a lot in increase of awareness of all concerned parties. The Municipality has given 22 months of volunteer implementation of regulation to give people chance to get use to it before it is mandatory use. This has helped in its success to large extent.
