+ - LED Bulbs Lifecycle Energy Costs Calculated-> 1

Submitted by necro81
necro81 (917438) writes "The NY Times is reporting that a new report from Osram, a major lighting manufacturer, has calculated the total lifecycle energy costs of LED lightbulbs and found that they are approximately 20% that of incandescents. While it is well known that LED bulbs use a fraction of the energy of incandescents to produce the same amount of light, it has been unproven if the higher manufacturing energy costs made the technology a net gain. The study found that manufacturing and distribution energy costs of all lightbulb technologies is only about 2% of their total lifetime energy cost — a tiny fraction of the energy used to produce light."

No problem is so large it can't be fit in somewhere.
