SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - Jan 31, 2013) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- The next large paradigm shift in the power and electrical sectors has already begun and will continue to gain momentum over the coming years -- the transition to LED lighting for domestic and industrial use.
While fluorescent lighting represents a step up in efficiency from incandescent bulbs, you may be surprised to learn that the use of fluorescent lights remains the largest single use of energy in the United States. The shift to utilizing light emitting diodes, or LEDs, is expected to drastically reduce electricity consumption from lighting over the next 20 years.
There are tremendous opportunities for electrical contractors and lighting designers who catch the LED wave early, as this form of lighting becomes increasingly widespread.
In this edition of Electric TV, Dr. James Brodrick, from the U.S. Department of Energy (DoE), discusses the advantages of LED lighting. He argues that it is superior to traditional lighting, both economically and in terms of its outstanding comparative durability.
In this video, you can learn how the DoE provides easy access to reviews of LED products on the market, as well as information about successful, real-world uses and projects with LED lighting. LED will be the lighting source of the future, and this edition of ElectricTV.net shows why.
The National Electrical Contractors Association, or NECA, has provided more than a century of service to the $130 billion electrical construction industry that brings power, light, and communication technology to buildings and communities across the United States. NECA's national and 119 local chapters advance the industry through advocacy, education, research, and standards development.
The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, or IBEW, represents approximately 725,000 members who work in a wide variety of fields, including utilities, construction, telecommunications, broadcasting, manufacturing, railroads and government. The IBEW has members in both the United States and Canada and stands out among the American unions in the AFL-CIO because it is among the largest and has members in so many skilled occupations.
