This lighting revolution is already underway. It is being driven by advances in one technology: light-emitting diodes, or LEDs. LEDs are emblematic of the emerging Clean Revolution technologies, which promise minimal environmental impact, generate immense economic value, and have the power to change our lives for the better. And through outdoor lighting, one of the most important drivers of LED market growth today, this technology is coming to city streets and parks near you.
The LED revolution
LEDs are bringing a lighting revolution to our cities not seen since the days of Thomas Edison. The quantum dynamics that create light in the LED semiconductor represent as much of a technology step change as the move from candles to incandescent lamps in the 19th century.
LEDs offer advances in:
Key findings include:
The Climate Group’s LightSavers trial concludes that LEDs are now mature enough for scale-up in most outdoor applications, and that LEDs combined with smart controls promise greater savings.
