According to the U.S. Department of Energy (United States Department of Energy, DOE) latest report, LED lamps installed capacity has increased 10-fold in the past two years from 4.5 million units in 2010 to 49 million units in 2012 in the United States, estimated that annual savings is $ 675 million in energy costs. By 2030, LED lighting is expected to account for 75% of total lighting sales, saving energy for 26 million U.S. homes. |
The Energy Minister Ernest Moniz (Ernest Moniz) said: "Efficient lighting industry's production can save money for consumers, while increasing employment for us ,which is a win-win solution for our economy. "
Now the LED luminous efficiency has been greatly improved, more efficient than traditional lighting, life is also extended to 25 times, but LED lighting products currently has high price, DOE selected five solid-state lighting project as the subsidies target to reduce the LED lighting production costs and improve production equipment and technology, while improving lighting quality and performance.
The DOE selected LED manufacturers as well as the amount of subsidies received were: Cree CREE($ 2.3 million), Eaton (2.40 million), OLEDWorks (100 million), Philips Lumileds (1.8 $ million), PPG Industries, Inc. ($ 2.3 million). Subsidies for the project will last for two years, the total amount is $ 10,100,000.
The strength of U.S. Department of Energy subsidies for solid-state lighting is high, which is enough to emphasize LED lighting development prospects,the U.S. electricity prices is higher, the advantages of LED lighting highlights more rapidly, which is a factor that popularity promote efficient lighting. There is a large development in Chinese LED market, the LED lighting develop rapidly in Chinese coastal areas especially t the Pearl River Delta, where a large number of professional LED manufacturer has emerged, lead lighting is just one of them, its professional lighting such as LED flood light, LED tunnel lights, LED tube and other indoor and outdoor lighting have been alike by domestic and foreign, we can more detailed understanding of product performance and use in lead lighting Home www.lead-lighting.com , Lead lighting insist in producing more energy saving LED lighting that adapt to our consuming demand to achieve low-carbon life!
