Top Lighting Developments of the Year

As 2012 comes to a close, let’s take a look back at some lighting developments of the year.

The year began with the phase-out of the incandescent light bulb, and the subsequent ban of common T12 bulbs. And as the era of inefficient lighting ended it passed the torch to newer, more efficient replacements including T8s and plasma.

It was also a big year for light emitting diodes, or LEDs. The innovative technology celebrated its 50th anniversary this year, and is gaining popularity among consumers and business owners alike. In fact, many retail stores are looking to make the big switch to just LED, including Ikea.
