The LED technology is today's most energy-efficient and rapidly-developing lighting technologies and has the potential to drastically change the future of lighting in India as well as worldwide.
It provides many additional advantages over incandescent, fluorescents, and compact fluorescent lamps and lighting devices. It has exceptionally longer life span (50000 hours), significant lower energy consumption (90% more efficient), minimal maintenance costs and higher safety features.
LED's emit light in a specific direction, reducing the need for reflectors and diffusers that can trap light. LED emit very minimal heat in comparison, incandescent bulbs release 90% of their energy as heat and CFLs release about 80% of their energy as heat thereby reducing the light-output. LED’s does not contain any mercury or other hazardous substances which makes it a very suitable environment friendly lighting source option in the modern time. Also LED’s light-up instantly in fraction of seconds and startup in low temperatures. It offers a great color rendering index and can be easily controlled for brightness and color if properly engineered.
