Drive towards implementing eco-friendly solutions is no more just a slogan. It is perhaps a necessity in the light of rapid industrialization of developing countries like China and India and accompanying pollution. When it comes to lighting, products that consume less electricity needs to be given a top priority.
It is important that any lightening system should incorporate lighting products that also meet stringent quality standards. It is crucial that purchases are made of only those lighting products which meet guidelines by global agencies including EU (UNI EN 13201-2-2004: ROAD LIGHTING), North America (RP8 2000), Asia (CEN 2003) and Australian Standards (AS1158). Modern cities and towns with their small shops and skyscrapers, roadways, art galleries and auditoriums, all invariably need an efficient lightening system. Whether it is lighting of parking areas or pedestrian crossings, lighting of homes or offices, adherence to such lighting products guarantees that you incorporate a reliable lighting platform that is a part of technology meant to give you the best luminary products while being responsible to the planet.
In the search of realizing an energy-efficient lightening system, LED lighting technology appears promising. In the book 'Billion Dollar Green: Profit from the Eco Revolution (2008),' Tobin Smith, Jim Woods, and Liz Claman opines that Light Emitting Diode (LED) is one of the best opportunities in terms of energy conservation in this green revolution. Also known as solid state lighting, LED lighting technology generates light with less energy consumption than incandescent or fluorescent bulbs. LED lighting technology uses a semiconducting material to convert electricity directly into light. This approach immensely improves energy efficiency. The authors confirm that LED lights are three to four times more energy efficient than incandescent bulbs.
For those individuals and entities who want to participate in the green movement, LED lighting technology is perhaps the way forward. Going forward, it is not surprising that LED lighting system is finding increased acceptance. The use of the latest CREE LEDslighting products that are made from cutting-edge PMMA lens (the secondary optic) can lead to optical efficiency of around 90 per cent. CREE LED'S specialization is that it prepares its semiconductor materials centered on silicon carbide, gallium nitride, and other such related compounds.
