As of 1 September 2018 energy intensive and inefficient halogen lightbulbs will no longer be sold across the European Union. As a result of these rules, European consumers will be able to save on their household bills and, by addressing this at EU level, this will mean significant EU-wide energy savings – equivalent to the electricity consumption of Portugal over 5 years.

This open-source tool helps users model the potential savings that a country could realise by a rapid transition to energy-efficient lighting.
The model forecasts the electrical energy and carbon dioxide emission savings potential of efficient lighting regulations relative to a business-as-usual scenario. The model baseline is the estimated 2010 installed stock and energy consumption from the en.lighten Country Lighting Assessments.

To keep global warming well below 2 degrees Celsius, accelerating a radical shift to smarter energy use is crucial. Within the private sector the transition has already begun, yet it is not happening fast enough – and millions of dollars in energy savings remain untapped.
Buildings are crucial targets for lowering emissions. They are what make up our rapidly expanding urban landscapes, their construction and architectural shape in turn shaping everyday human lives. Yet they also represent 32% of global energy consumption and a quarter of global human induced CO2 emissions.
