Climate change makes the energy saving and carbon reduction issues increasingly paid attention to, and how to effectively reduce energy consumption has become an important issue, with the birth of blue LED and white light LED, the global traditional lighting energy saving is slowly being replaced with LED, LED technology is also used in a variety of areas to improve the human life.
White LED, 20 times higher than the traditional incandescent lamp efficiency, while the U. S. Department of energy statistics, by 2030 the traditional lighting is converted to LED can reduce 261TWh power, power plant is about 30 of the province respectively under the 1000MW power, and reduce 1.85 tons of carbon dioxide emissions.
In addition, LED can also be combined with solar energy to replace the toxic and dangerous traditional coal lamps. LED technology also won the world's famous renewable energy and sustainable development award this year - Zayed Future Energy Prize, affirming the positive impact of LED technology on the world.
LED plant plant, mitigate the food crisis
The United Nations estimates that by the year 2050, the global population will reach 10 billion, and the grain output will have to increase by 50% to 60%. However, the global warming will affect the soil and water resources, leading to the uncertainty of the external environment.
Employers move crops from outdoor to indoor, combined with efficient LED and agricultural technology to build plant plants. In order to adjust the LED light of different wavelengths for various crops, the growth speed can be accelerated and the nutritional value can be increased, and the interference of the external environment can be avoided. Thanks to indoor planting technology, Holland has become the second largest food exporter in the world. Its tomato production is six times more than the global average production, but its water consumption is 25 times that of the global average.
LED ultraviolet bactericidal to improve water pollution
With the growth of the population, water pollution and water shortage are another major problem that must be faced all over the world. Nearly 850 million of the world's population is short of basic daily water, and about 500 thousand people die from water pollution every year, and a clean water source has become a major challenge.
Nakamura Shuji, the winner of 2018 Zayed Future Energy Prize Lifetime Achievement Award, said that in order to solve the problem of water pollution, they are developing UVC LED with a wavelength of 280 nm, to kill pathogens in water. Although the UVC LED has low power and low efficiency at present, they believe that they will eventually develop efficient equipment and use it in the development of China. (LEDinside Annie)
