Philips, the Dutch electricals giant has developed an LED light that will soon be far more efficient than the best fluorescent on the markt. The new light will save energy and money, and cut pollution.
‘This is a major step forward for the lighting world’ said Rene Van Schooten, cheif executive of Philips light sources division.
The prototype is heading for mass production and will hit the market in 2015.
Mr Van Schooten said the Philips lamp will be the first on the market that reaches that level of efficiency and functions across a normal range of temperatures and capable of consistently producing the same amount of warm white coloured light as comparable florescent tubes.
