led bulbs lead the way
2009 Global and China LED industry report-
According to 2010 released in July 29, the global LED market has grown from $7 billion in 2009 to $10.
It was $7 billion in 2010 and is expected to reach $20.
4 billion to 2012.
Led or LEDs have high energy efficiency, free of Mercury, and have a longer life than incandescent lamps.
S. Department of Energy estimates that LED lighting in the United States will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 246 metric tons and reduce power consumption by 25%, equivalent to the energy saving of 24 large power plants.
The increasing availability of LED for home lighting has LED to a change in the way the bulb performance is evaluated.
In their information about LED bulbs, the EU noted that the traditional method of measuring bulb power wattage no longer makes sense.
Instead, the EU measured the performance of the 1300 lumens lamp
1400 lumens is equivalent to 100 watts (W)
40w and 430-220 lumens
230 lumens are equivalent to 25w incandescent lamps.
220 LED bulbs can be expensive230 lumen (25W)
Average bottle cap white bulb retail price of 29 euros from electronic manufacturer Philips
LED lighting market leader Cree Inc. sells a wide range of high-performance LED lights such as LR6-for around € 40, core £ 500-
230 V, about 118 euros, although this is currently only available in the United States, as is the final agreement of Philip.
Manufacturers believe that the high cost of LED bulbs is offset by their years of life, and consumers seem to agree with this in terms of recent market growth.
Although they have a long life span when LED bulbs run out, they cannot be treated like incandescent lamps;
The European Union suggested that the bulbs should be handled by sending them back to the store where they were purchased or in a dedicated collection box for discarded electronics.
Under the EU directive, inefficient energy bulbs began to be phased out in September 2009;
By 2016, the EU plans to replace all incandescent lamps with energy.
