The next generation of low consumption lighting systems is set to slash energy consumption in Europe. New developments, such as organic LEDs, could result in huge energy savings.

According to the OLED100.eu project, lighting now accounts for a quarter of Europe's total energy consumption. Development of alternative lighting systems with greater energy efficiency will have an important impact on European energy consumption.

While current low energy and longer-life light bulbs offer energy savings by comparison with incandescent bulbs, they have drawbacks. In particular, hazardous materials, such as mercury, prevents such bulbs from being viable long-term solutions. Fortunately extensive research into low-energy lighting has uncovered new technologies that could revolutionise the sector.
