Philips calls for urgent LED bulb switch at conference

LED bulb manufacturer Philips has called for a worldwide switch to LED lighting at the United Nations climate change conference in Durban, South Africa.

The leading lamp maker has said that a switch will help combat climate change, save energy and improve lives through better safety and productivity in both home and at work.

Urging the world's governments and businesses to work together to make the switch, Philips said that a "tipping point" has been reached for the development of LED lighting that can be used in almost all applications.

Harry Verhaar, senior director for energy and climate change at Philips lighting, explained that "LED lighting offers both dramatic savings in energy use and maintenance costs".

He also said that the company's LED bulbs can bring lighting solutions to the 1.6 billion people in the world who do not have electricity.

Philips recently announced that it will work with South Africa utility Eskon to distribute LED bulbs around the country.
