Today's most efficient way of illuminating and lighting is undoubtedly LED. When compared with older lighting technologies such as Incandescent, Halogen and CFL bulbs, you will find that LED is by far the most energy saving and smart solution.
Lumens are being introduced as the new unit of measurement for light bulbs. In the past, the strength of light bulbs was measured in watts, which is actually a measure of power.
Traditional incandescent light bulbs are very inefficient: they waste 95% of the electricity they use by turning it into heat. So under new EU rules, they're being phased out and replaced by energy efficient light bulbs – a measure that will reduce CO2 emissions by up to 15 million tons a year.
Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) are a low energy alternative to traditional incandescent bulbs. Instead of a tungsten filament, CFLs consist of a glass tube filled with mercury vapour and gas, with an electrode at either end of the tube.
