Halogen ban in EU
After nearly 60 years of brightening our builidings, homes and streets, halogen lightbulbs will be bannend across Europe on 1 September.

Energy label A or B

LEDs consume one-fifth of the energy of halogen bulbs and their phase-out will prevent more than 15m tonnes of carbon emissions a year, an amout equal to Portugal’s annual electricity usage. Lightbulbs and luminairs in the EU market must have a minimum energy label B from 1 September. Halogen is usually energy label C or D and therefore no longer allowed for distribution.

Save energy and money 

This measure is often said to cost organizations and consumers money. If you want to save money, it is wise to replace lights and luminaire higher in consumption than energy label B for efficient LED based solutions.
