Transcript of "LED it Be Light"

  1. 1. The incandescent light bulb was downright amazing when it was invented in 1809 by Humphry Davy
  2. 2. Keep clicking
  3. 3. L.E.D.’s.Lights
  4. 4. Because they use less power than standard incandescent bulbs, white LEDs have become common in flashlights
  5. 5. The light bulb has been running out of friends recently Australia is banning them in 2010 California and Canada have decided to ban the sale of incandescent bulbs by 2012 A U.S. Senate committee is working on a proposal that would phase out the light bulb in 10 years The European Union is looking at banning them
  6. 6. And in New Jersey, where the first practical incandescent bulb emerged from Thomas Edison's laboratory in , a bill has been introduced to ban their use in government buildings
  7. 7. Banishing the dark gobbles up of the electricity generated in the United States Widespread use of LED lighting could cut consumption in Source: U.S. Department of Energy
  8. 8. almost all of this electricity creates rather than light a typical 100-watt light bulb radiates roughly 95 watts into its surroundings as
  9. 9. By 2027, LED lighting could cut annual energy use by the equivalent of with the attendant reduction in emissions of carbon dioxide the gas believed to be responsible for global warming
  10. 10. The absence of a filament and its surrounding vacuum-containing bulb makes LEDs extremely durable and eco-friendly That’s GOOD!
  11. 11. LEDs have another big advantage of service Not having to send out janitors to replace burned-out bulbs means big savings in maintenance costs
  12. 12. What holds it back is chiefly their price but LEDs are already an economic alternative for niche uses I’ll show an example
  13. 13. Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is putting LED lighting in its in-store refrigerators, where the cold dims fluorescents and incandescents produce too much heat That is a nice niche use!
  14. 14. A high-end 10-watt LED light bulb currently costs just under $100. It replaces an incandescent 100-watt light bulb that typically costs around $1. So at first, the 10-watt LED light seems to be $99 more expensive Yep! that’s expensive!
  15. 15. For applications in places where dealing with a burned-out bulb can pose a serious safety concern--cost is a minor consideration
  16. 16. Major lighting manufacturers Spurred on by the federal Next Generation Lighting Initiative have formed consortia with semiconductor producers to mass-produce LEDs
  17. 17. By some estimates, white-light LEDs could capture a quarter of the existing incandescent and fluorescent lighting markets as early as 2012
  18. 18. The cost of LED lighting should be coming down quickly!
  19. 19. “The cost of individual white-light diodes, several of which go into an LED bulb and make up much of the cost, have come down in price from about $8 to $1.50 in a year.” quot;LEDs, good or bad, will be growing very rapidly.quot;
  20. 20. As in the microelectronics revolution, many of the possible applications for LED’s will occur in ways that have not yet been envisioned
  21. 21. But one thing is for sure LED’s are more eco-friendly and don’t contribute with
