Elaborating on their upcoming plan to facilitate lighting in rural areas and the importance of LED Expo to the lighting industry, Mr Arun Kumar Mishra, CEO, Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL), shared: “For our Street Lighting National Programme, we intend to bring investment to the tune of INR 8,000 crores by 2024 by covering entire rural India, with more than 30 million LED streetlights to be retrofitted/installed by EESL. At present, most of the streetlights used in the Gram Panchayat’s are conventional lights such as Incandescent bulbs, CFLs or FTLs, which consume considerably more energy. It is estimated that there is a potential of reducing energy consumption is up to 50% using energy efficient LED Lighting in place of existing Conventional Street Lights used by the Gram Panchayat’s of India. We, at EESL will continue to work towards illuminating the homes and streets of India with LEDs. I firmly believe that events such as the LED Expo will play a pivotal role in building an awareness around the considerable utility of LEDs in helping India achieve its sustainability goals.”
