Currently, the best white LEDs in use have an overall efficiency of approximately 25%, however the researchers are planning to develop one that would be more like 50-60%.

It has been reported in the Scotsman that Professor Edik Rafailov of Dundee University’s School of Engineering, Physics and Mathematics is to lead the study. The £7.24million NEWLED project is aiming to develop a new generation of white light-emitting LED lights which would be much more efficient than existing light bulbs. It is generally agreed that if the efficient white LEDs are successfully developed and widely implemented, they could have a significant impact on reducing global energy consumption and CO2 emissions.
