Domestic Lighting Roadmap Evidence Study - EV0429

A life cycle assessment is being carried out for lamps that are classed as 'ultra-efficient' and intended for domestic (household) useage, including lamps based on LEDs, T5 fluorescent lamps and ceramic metal halide. Taking account of technical advances that are projected to take place over the period to 2014 a comparison is being made with the life cycle impacts of Compact Fluorescent Lamps and incandescents. This study has been commissioned to provide a basis for the domestic lighting products roadmap and will make high-level recommendations to Government on interventions to limit the identified impacts.
