Lighting accounts for approximately 15% of the global electric energy consumption and 5% of greenhouse gas. Projections by the IEA show that if governments only rely on current policies, global electricity use for lighting will grow from around 2,900 TWh to around 4,250 TWh by 2030. Due to the world’s growing population and the increasing demand for electrically driven services in emerging economies, the increase will occur despite constant improvements in the energy efficiency of lighting systems.
