Industry calls for LED revolution for more energy efficient Australia

As debate rages between nuclear and renewables, peak industry body the Lighting
Council Australia has said the discussion needs to include the role LED lighting can
play in making each household in the country more energy efficient.

CEO Malcolm Richards said that while Australia’s long-term energy sources are of
critical importance, it’s important that governments don’t overlook more basic
measures that affect all households.

“We’re having an important conversation surrounding nuclear and renewable energy
sources, but what we’re not paying enough attention to is how to use energy more
efficiently,” Mr Richards said.

“If the entire country moved over to LED lighting tomorrow, it would save enough energy
to power 80,000 electric vehicles.”
