An LED is a semiconductor light source used for purposes such as general lighting, backlighting, and automotive lighting in residential, office, retail, and hospitality spaces and in industrial, outdoor, and architectural applications.
Its efficiency and low cost help address key issues such as the energy crisis, resource scarcity, and climate change, and enhances safety in cities and productivity in offices. It also has the ability to provide an enhanced sense of health and well-being. Lighting consumes approximately 20 percent of all the power in the world and by using LED lighting, people can save, on an average, up to 40 percent of energy every year.
LED lights have many advantages over other lighting sources including:
- High intensity of brightness
- High energy efficiency
- Low voltage and current requirements
- Low radiated heat
- High reliability
- Negligible UV rays
- Long life span
- Ability to be easily controlled and programed
