The United States announced the LED light bulb efficiency standards proposal
Recently, the US Department of Energy (DOE) announced the LED light bulb efficiency standards proposal, which reportedly proposed efficiency standards for light bulbs to provide more cost-effective and energy-efficient choice for the home user and office lighting.
US Department of Energy efficiency standards for light illumination proposal followed the pace of technological change. With advanced LED technology, to meet the existing standards, the traditional light bulb on the market, such as halogen lamps and CFL energy-saving lamps will likely be replaced. To change the traditional light bulb to achieve consistent transition and industrial LED lights and the whole market has occurred.
We can see the significance of changes in the lighting market. Incandescent technology has been developed more than 130 years, relying on outdated incandescent technology will cause a lot of the heat energy loss.
Even if the store looks good selling price of an incandescent lamp, in the long run, more old-fashioned light bulb electricity generated will ultimately failed to bring benefits to consumers.
Compared with the traditional white light, high-quality LED lamps reduce energy consumption by 80%. Several years ago LED unit price up to $ 100, but with the development of LED technology, LED prices continued to fall, so that prices can compete with conventional light bulb technology. Now you can easily find the price of less than $ 5 in the 60-watt equivalent LED lamp stores across the country.
LED lights based on superior performance and cost savings, some 2030 LED lights will account for 80% of all lighting ratio. To 2014 in terms of, LED lights installed to reduce the 710 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions, and savings of $ 1.4 billion in energy costs. According to the optical efficiency standards proposal, the cumulative carbon dioxide emissions are expected to decrease in 2030 will be equivalent to 13 million households a year electricity consumption.
