That’s light

Electrical Review Logo

Lighting company Royal Philips Electronics (Philips), has developed an LED lamp it describes as the “world’s most energy-efficient LED lamp”.

Philips researchers developed a tube lighting (TL) replacement TLED prototype said to produce a “record” 200 lumens per watt of high-quality white light (compared with 100lm/W for fluorescent lighting and just 15lm/W for traditional light bulbs). Philips says this prototype TLED lamp is twice as efficient as predecessor lamps, halving the energy used.

With lighting accounting for more than 19% of the world’s total electricity consumption, Philips claims this development will to drive energy and cost savings globally. The 200lm/W TLED lamp is expected to hit the market in 2015 for office and industry applications, before being used in the home.

The future’s bright?
