Recently, the US Department of Energy (DOE) announced a proposal for a light source standard, which is said to provide a more cost-effective and energy-efficient alternative for home and office lighting.
The US Department of Energy’s proposal for light efficiency standards follows the pace of change in lighting technology. With the development of advanced LED technology, in order to meet existing standards, traditional light bulbs such as halogen lamps and CFL energy-saving lamps on the market may be replaced. The transition from traditional light bulbs to LED lights is consistent with changes that have taken place in industry and throughout the market.
We can see the significance of the changes in the lighting market. Incandescent lamp technology has been developed for more than 130 years, and incandescent lamps rely on outdated technology to dissipate heat that will cause a lot of energy loss.
Even if the price of incandescent lamps in the store looks good, in the long run, more electricity bills generated by obsolete bulbs will ultimately not benefit consumers.
High quality LED lamps consume 80% less energy than traditional white paper lamps. The price of LEDs was as high as $100 a few years ago, but with the development of LED technology, LED prices continue to fall, allowing prices to compete with traditional technology bulbs. Now you can easily find 60 watt equivalent LED lights for less than $5 in specialty stores across the country.
Based on the superior performance and cost savings of LED lights, it is expected that by 2030 LED lights will account for 80% of all lighting. For 2014, the installation of LED lights reduced 710 metric tons of CO2 emissions and saved $1.4 billion in energy costs. According to the proposal for the efficacy standard, it is estimated that the cumulative reduction in CO2 emissions by 2030 will be equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of 13 million households.
