Useful information on the subject „lighting“ (in particular LED lamps) are covered in the Guidelines.
The website www.oekotopten.lu provides a list of the best LED lamps available on the Luxembourg Market.
In addition to energy efficiency and electricity saving, the energy source is also an important factor when it comes to „electrical energy“: Therefore you should prefer electricity produced from renewable energy sources.
Consumers can request test results of lamps from the partner of this campaign Union Luxembourgeoise des Consommateurs.
