The sixth SEAD Global Efficiency Medal competition identified and recognized highly energy-efficient industrial lighting luminaires from LumoLumen and Zumtobel, and outdoor lighting luminaires from Bajaj Electricals. Winning products were recognized at an awards ceremony at the International Energy Agency in Paris, France - 07 November, 2017.
The SEAD Initiative works with manufacturers, retailers, and policymakers to showcase feature-rich, energy-efficient products that provide top-quality services while reducing energy costs. The Global Efficiency Medal competitions demonstrate the levels of efficiency that are possible today, and shine a spotlight on innovative new technologies that can further push the boundaries of efficiency and slash energy consumption.
Lighting consumes approximately 15% of global end-use electricity and accounts for 5% of global greenhouse gas emissions (UNEP en.lighten).
