Effective LED light source can reduce carbon emissions
Using more efficient LED light sources, with a focus on roads and sidewalks, will help the council reduce energy consumption and associated carbon emissions by about 50%.
According to the edie newsroom, more than 900,000 street lamps are currently illuminated in Scotland, causing local authorities to lose £41 million in electricity bills each year. These lights also release 200,000 tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere every year. The total investment of the Scottish LED Council is expected to reach 337 million pounds by 2021, which is expected to save 1.2 billion pounds of energy and maintenance costs over the next 20 years and save 2.6 million tons of carbon dioxide.

In addition, a report by the Climate Group last year showed that if the world exceeds LED lighting in all industries, global lighting power consumption will be reduced by more than half (52%), and annual emissions of 735 million tons of carbon dioxide will be reduced.
In addition to the Scottish government’s investment plan, India also announced that it will replace streetlights and all traditional bulbs in the domestic sector with LED bulbs by 2017 – this program will reduce the electrical load of 5GW and save 581 million pounds.
At the same time, Bristol’s main street lighting upgrade plan is also being carried out step by step, and has begun the second phase of the main street lighting upgrade, in which 12,000 lamps are equipped with energy-saving light bulbs, adding the first stage
Installed 8,000 LEDs. The program saves the council £1 million in energy costs annually and reduces carbon emissions by 4,000 tons.
