Learn about the changes in lighting technology, with specific reference to developments in dimmable LEDs. This document also explains these different issues and provides examples of the possible compromises to be considered.

In recent years, the lighting world has witnessed a new revolution with the appearance of LED based lighting. In retail outlets, incandescent lamps now appear to belong to another age, and the compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) must compete with the new player in the retrofit market. There are numerous reasons for the emergence of LED lighting technology. LED technology is constantly developing and rapidly improving with time, and LEDs are becoming far brighter and much more powerful. Added to their efficiency, these features make them ideal for use in lighting. An incandescent lamp produces approximately 10 lumens per Watt, but LEDs can now reach values of up to 100 lumens per Watt. LEDs are already more efficient than the currently available CFL lamps seen in the market today.

Ecological issues are also becoming increasingly relevant to the public. With a heightened awareness of global warming and climate change, the idea of saving resources and energy is becoming a major feature in many marketing strategies.
