CEM Global Lighting Challenge Launched at COP21 to Deploy 10 Billion LED Bulbs

The Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) announced on the 7th of December, 2015, the formal launch of the Global Lighting Challenge (GLC)—a race to deploy 10 billion high-efficiency, high-quality, and affordable lighting products (such as LED bulbs) as quickly as possible. Lighting currently accounts for 15% of the global electricity consumption—more than the electricity generated by all the nuclear power stations in the world—and 5% of worldwide greenhouse gas emissions. An overnight global transition to highly efficient lighting could avoid more than 800 million metric tons of CO2 emissions, equivalent to displacing 684 coal-fired power plants for a year.
