Top five benefits Americans will realize by meeting DOE goals for LED efficacy
1. Enormous energy savings of 4.5 quads annually by 2030, cutting U.S. electricity bills by $40 billion, enhancing energy security, and yielding carbon reductions and other environmental benefits.
2. Scientific progress and technological advances on semiconductors, phosphor materials, quantum dots, power supplies, and optical materials with crossovers into other clean technology.
3. Better LED products that deliver improved lighting quality, longevity, and reliability, as well as enhanced services.
4. Lower first costs for LED lighting products, which, in turn, will encourage change-out of the existing lighting stock to more efficient devices.
5. Stronger positioning of domestic LED manufacturers who produce high value, high brightness LEDs.
