LEDs are now massively produced in many markets, and competition among manufacturers is driving further innovation, wider product choices and lower prices.

Global lighting sales, historical and in the Net-Zero Scenario, 2010-2030


Lighting is one of the few technologies on track with the Net Zero Emissions by 2050 Scenario

2021 saw progress both in terms of LED deployment and lighting efficiency gains. Over 50% of buildings sector lighting markets globally are covered by LEDs. While numerous countries began to phase out incandescent lamps more than ten years ago, many are now beginning to eliminate fluorescent lighting to make LEDs the main technology. Although most advanced markets have introduced new regulations mandating the exclusive sale of high-efficacy LED lamps, progress in this area must be sustained to ensure that all countries sell only LEDs by 2025, in line with the Net Zero Emissions by 2050 Scenario.

The aims of the 4E TCP are to promote energy efficiency as the key to ensuring safe, reliable, affordable and sustainable energy systems. As an international platform for collaboration between governments, the 4E TCP provides policy guidance to its members and other governments concerning energy using equipment and systems. The 4E TCP prioritises technologies and applications with significant energy consumption and energy saving potential within the residential, commercial and industrial sectors (not including transport). To meet its aims, the 4E TCP harnesses the expertise of governments, industry, experts and other TCPs for joint research related to the development and deployment of energy efficient equipment.
