Lighting has a substantial impact on the environment, accounting for up to 40 % of electricity used in non-residential buildings. Major energy savings can be achieved. Examples from the field have shown that between 30 % and 50 % of electricity used for lighting could be saved investing in energy-efficient lighting systems.
