LEDs to play key role in solar energy scheme
The incandescent lamp has given way to the compact fluorescent lamp (CFLs) which is more energy-efficient. The CFL is likely to be phased out gradually by the Light Emitting Diode. The arrival of LED bulbs in the market is expected to have an impressive impact on energy conservation schemes, according to experts in the field. (Indian) The Energy Management Centre, an autonomous organisation under the State Department of Power, will introduce LED lamps under the energy saving schemes to be launched in the next phase of solar energy programmes. Such an approach would enable solar energy-powered household units to have own power system independent of the Kerala State Electricity Board, Dharesan Unnithan, Director, EMC, told The Hindu.
