GE retrofit LED lamp wins Energy Saving Trust approval

Jun 10, 2010 A 4-watt GU10 LED from GE Lighting is the first retrofit LED lamp to gain approval by the UK's Energy Saving Trust's product certification scheme. The lamp is now permitted to carry a Recommended label, allowing costumers to recognize energy-efficient products.

The GE LED lamp will be added to other lamps already listed on the Energy Saving Trust Recommended lighting products web page.

Designed as a retrofit for reflector lamps with an international-standard size and shape, the GU10 LED lamp has the lifetime of 15,000 hours (to 70% lumen output). The lamp has the 36-degree beam angle. It produces warm-white light at 3100K with CRI >80.

"This is the first time an LED lamp has been awarded approval by the Energy Saving Trust Recommended scheme, and GE Lighting has set a high standard for the industry by demonstrating what high-quality, well-designed LEDs in the appropriate application can achieve" - Mike Barrett, Commercial Director, UK & Nordic Region at GE Lighting.

The Energy Saving Trust is a UK organization set up to try and prevent climate change by helping everybody to cut carbon dioxide emissions from their homes and transport.
