Lighting currently accounts for 15% of global electricity consumption — more than the electricity generated by all the nuclear power plants in the world — and 5% of worldwide greenhouse gas emissions.
Projects like SEAD and the Global Lighting Challenge work to identify and deploy high efficiency, high quality lighting products around the world. These efforts are a socioeconomic imperative — an improvement for humanity and our planet -- rooted in the innovation and collaboration -- spurred by efficient lighting.
An overnight global transition to highly efficient LED lamps would avoid 801 Mt of CO2 emissions, equivalent to displacing 684 coal-fired power plants around the world.

If standards were put in place to globally adopt the best available lighting technology, by 2030 we would be saving 632 TWh of electricity annually.
