LED Lighting Could Save Developing Countries $40 Billion/yr.

Developing and emerging economies could save $40 billion worth of electricity and prevent 320 million metric tons of carbon pollution annually simply by transitioning to LED lighting, according to estimates from United Nation’s Environment. Today speakers at a side event to the big international climate change conference (COP 23) occurring in Bonn, Germany, announced new model regulations that are designed to phase out inefficient incandescent light bulbs and establish minimum performance requirements for the LED bulbs to replace them in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Lighting represents roughly 15 percent of all worldwide electricity use and there are several billion sockets around the globe that still contain an incandescent light bulb. http://www.ledinside.com/knowledge/2017/11/led_lighting_could_save_developing_countries_40_billion_yr
