LED bulbs

10 billion LEDs is the goal for the Global Lighting Challenge, which encourages businesses to switch to more efficient fixtures.

Increased urbanization and population growth are expected to drive a 50% rise in lighting by 2030. To counter this energy demand, the Global Lighting Challenge is encouraging the widespread adoption of LEDs, with a goal of deploying 10 billion affordable fixtures and bulbs.

According to the Clean Energy Ministerial, the program creator, lighting accounts for 15% of global electricity consumption. It is also responsible for 5% of global greenhouse gas emissions, which is more than double the emissions of worldwide air travel. Accelerating the transition to energy efficient lighting will have a significant environmental and economic impact.

The European Commission and 13 countries, including the U.S., have endorsed the lighting benchmark. The DOE has a number of programs to help business owners finance lighting retrofits. In addition to a municipal outdoor lighting initiative, the DOE offers the Lighting Energy Efficiency in Parking (LEAP) Campaign and the Interior Lighting Campaign for offices.
