Humble light bulb helps Japan fill nuclear gap
March 02, 2015
TOKYO — Japan’s push to keep power flowing after it shuttered its nuclear program may best be illustrated by 73 million light bulbs. That’s the number of LED bulbs sold in Japan since the start of 2012, representing about 30 percent of all bulbs sold there. The LEDs, which consume a fifth of the energy used by standard lights, are key to the country’s strategy to make energy use more efficient, even as it pursues alternative sources such as solar power.
