With Daylight Savings Time coming to an end on Sunday, we prepare for longer nights and turning our lights on an hour earlier every day. Thankfully, upgrading to energy-efficient light bulbs, like CFLs and LEDs, will counteract this increased energy use, conserving electricity and saving money throughout the coming months of increased darkness. LED News The advancements in LED technology continue to impress people around the globe. Earlier this month, three scientists were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics “for the invention of efficient blue light-emitting diodes which has enabled bright and energy-saving white light sources.” Although red and green LEDs have been around for decades, without blue light, creating white lamps to replace incandescent bulbs in our homes and businesses would not be possible. Snapshot of LED History Here’s a brief timeline showing the progress of this monumental energy-saving lighting technology over the last 107 years: The Future is Here Today, in developing areas of the world, LED technology allows electric light to reach places it has never been able to go before. While in developed countries, it continues to offer significant energy savings, stimulating economic growth and acting as a leader toward reducing overall wear and tear on the planet. Thanks to the accomplishments of men and women like Holonyak, Akasaki, Amano and Nakamura, and many others, innovations in the field of energy efficient lighting will continue to inspire countless, cost-effective ways to continue lighting up the world. Daylight Savings Time ends at 2AM on Sunday, November 2nd, so don’t forget to set your clocks back and enjoy that extra hour of sleep!
