Dec. 1, 2011 - PRLog -- Shri. Sushil Kumar Shinde, Hon'ble Minister of Power, Govt. of India, inaugurated the 5th Edition of this iconic show at Pragati Maidan on December 1, 2011. In his inaugural address at the 'LED Summit 2011', Shri Shinde said " It is reported that Lighting consumes, on an average, 27% of the electricity produced in the world. In advanced countries, this percentage may be as low as 5% and in the under-developed countries; it can be as high as 90%. In this background, LED Lighting with its spectacular potential savings assumes tremendous importance for a country like India, where lighting consumes more than 20% of total energy"

"We expect that in the 12th Plan, LED technology will contribute towards reducing demand in a big way in the area of lighting and industrial application. This shall help in achieving our demand side saving targets under the National Mission for Enhanced Energy Efficiency (NMEEE) in the country" Shri Shinde added further.

Speaking on the occasion, DR Sandeep Garg, Energy Economist, Bureau of Energy Efficiency(BEE), said " The Indian LED Market is anticipated to grow at 54% till 2014 based on the industry estimates. It is expected that by 2021, LED technology will penetrate 57 percent of the lighting market. By 2031, more than 80 percent of the lighting market will be captured"
