Better light with less energy

Household lighting in Europe is becoming greener as the European Union sets higher energy efficiency standards.

On 1 September 2009, incandescent light bulbs and other energy inefficient lamps started to be gradually replaced by more energy efficient lamps in Europe. By switching to more energy efficient lighting products, European households can save energy and contribute to reaching the EU’s climate protection targets.

This website informs consumers, professionals and the media about the wide range of energy efficient lamps currently available, the phase-out of inefficient lamp types and what European legislation is already in place.
