India has witnessed a phenomenal progress with an annual energy savings of over 3,340 crore kWh*. The burgeoning consumption of LED lights could make India the first nation to use LED for all kinds of lights. With constant measures taken by the government to encourage the use of LED bulbs and technologies, these energy efficient lights are now widely used in commercial sectors, government building, streetlights and even residential areas. Acting as a stimulus to the progress of LED lights in the all the cities and towns of the country, the 20th edition of LED Expo Mumbai will bring over 300 companies offering the latest technologies and advancements to buyers across the country.
