LED Bulbs Developed to Mimic Incandescent Glow
A team of graduates from the University of Edinburgh are looking to jolt the LED lighting industry with a new set of LED bulbs designed to have the same glow of classic incandescent lights.
FOUR University of Edinburgh graduates are aiming to shake up the lighting industry with their range of low-energy LED bulbs that mimic the glow of traditional incandescent lights. The spark for the entrepreneurs’ Tala LED start-up came from a shared desire to “do something that would impact on our generation and generations to come”, said director Ciaran Dawson. He added: “We initially decided to look at renewable power projects and started to work on a solar farm in Portugal as a pilot project. “But the roadmap to getting revenues is very hard, especially for a start-up, and we realised that LED lighting could make an immediate impact on clients’ electricity costs and generate revenue for us more quickly.”
