The impact of LED lights on the economy

Nov. 03, 2018

The performance of LED bulbs is amazing, using 85% of the energy to produce the same amount of light as old incandescent lamps. The brightness of a 60-watt incandescent bulb can be achieved with a 10 watt LED bulb, and the heat is much lower than that of an incandescent lamp. LED lamps have a long life, many times longer than incandescent lamps, and are easy to maintain and environmentally friendly.

Lighting accounts for about 15% of global electricity consumption, and billions of outlets around the world still contain incandescent bulbs. One of the best investments that developing and emerging economies can make is shifting from inefficient incandescent bulbs to ultra-efficient LED bulbs that haven't changed much in the past 125 years. Unlike Europe and the United States, these energy-consuming light bulbs will be phased out.

According to estimates by the United Nations Environment Ministry, developing countries and emerging economies can save $40 billion in electricity and prevent 320 million metric tons of carbon pollution annually by transitioning to LED lighting. A spokesperson for the side event at the International Climate Change Conference announced new regulations aimed at phasing out inefficient incandescent bulbs and determining the minimum performance requirements for LED bulbs to replace them.

The world's energy is declining, environmental protection and energy conservation is a matter that every country must pay attention to, and lighting is undoubtedly very large in terms of energy consumption. If this can be done well, the world's energy consumption will be greatly reduced.
