While in the past LEDs were mainly used for exit signs, traffic lights, and spotlights, today many LED lamps are omnidirectional and are the ideal energy-efficient and environmentally friendly lighting solution for decorative, ambient and general lighting applications.
The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates that the total electricity consumed for lighting by the commercial sector in 2010, including commercial and industrial buildings and public streets and highway lighting, was 300 billion kilowatt hours (kWh). This figure amounts to about 22 percent of commercial sector electricity consumption, and about 8 percent of the total U.S. electricity consumption.
