The Real Low-Carbon Economy ‘Disruptor’ by William Atkinson

When people think of the low-carbon economy and the multiple technologies in place that are fueling the growth of green, it is likely that most of them would point to wind and solar as the two most significant and influential drivers of the trend. Not so, according to a new report from Goldman Sachs, “The New Energy Landscape: The Future of Clean Energy.” Their pick: LEDs, which they identify as “one of the fastest technology shifts in human history.” “With almost three billion lamps sold globally, LEDs will this year be on par with CFLs at 28 percent of the global lighting market, up from 1 percent of global lamp sales in 2010,” the report states. By 2020, according to Goldman Sachs, LEDs will make up 69 percent of lighting sales, and almost 100 percent by 2025, up from almost nothing in 2010.
