The coming revolution in LED lighting

The coming revolution in LED lighting by Optical Society of America A revolution in energy-efficient, environmentally-sound, and powerfully-flexible lighting is coming to businesses and Construction developments. The future of lighting—a future with widespread use of light emitting diodes (LEDs), which offer a number of obvious and subtle advantages over traditional light bulbs. We are at the verge of a revolution. There are tremendous opportunities that open up with LED lighting. As an alternative to the traditional incandescent light bulb, LED lights provide significant energy savings. They can be 2,000 percent more efficient than conventional light bulbs and 500 percent more efficient than compact fluorescent bulbs. It is predicted that widespread use of LEDs over the course of 10 years would save more than $1 trillion in energy costs, eliminate the need for nearly a billion barrels of oil over 10 years, and lead to a substantial reduction in emissions of carbon dioxide, the most common greenhouse gas. All of these advantages make LEDs a good replacement light source, but the true potential of LED lighting lies in their ability to transform—rather than simply replace—lighting technology. It's time to make the switch ;) #leds #energysavings #ledlights #ledlighting
