- Lighting consumes 19% of global electricity consumption (International Energy Agency).
- Shifting to efficient lighting technologies around the world would cut the amount of electricity used for lighting from 19% to 7%. This would save enough electricity to eliminate 705 of the world’s 2,670 coal-fired plants. (“Plan B 4.0: Mobilizing to Save Civilization,” Lester R. Brown, Earth Policy Institute, 2009.)
- ‘Making The Switch’ to more efficient lighting technologies is one simple way to contribute to the challenge.
