LEDs could save US $37 bn in energy costs

MAY 9, 2013

An overnight switch to LEDs could save the US $37 billion in annual energy costs, according to a report by the US Department of Energy (DoE).   

The report states 49 million LED lamps and luminaires were installed in nine lighting applications in 2012 and saved $675 million in energy costs across these markets that year. However, the document said if these nine lighting applications began using 100 per cent LEDs overnight, as much as half the country’s total lighting energy consumption in 2012 could have been saved ($37 billion), This equates to annual source energy savings of 3,873 trillion British thermal units (tBtu).
