[Comment] The rise in oil and electricity prices has brought benefits to the promotion of energy-saving lamps.

The National Development and Reform Commission announced on the 19th that since June 20, 2008, domestic refined oil prices have been raised, with gasoline and diesel being raised by RMB 1,000/ton and jet fuel by RMB 1,500/ton. From July 1st, the national sales price will increase by 0.025 yuan per kWh. This took the first step of China's energy reform this year, and once again sounded the alarm of the energy crisis to the people.
Oil and electricity are the two lifeblood of the country and are closely related to people's livelihood issues. The price of oil and gas has risen this time, and the government will actively take measures to minimize the negative impact of rising prices, such as stabilizing prices and raising the minimum living security. In the field of lighting, it is expected that the government will further strengthen the promotion of high-efficiency lighting products and promote the implementation of energy-saving work.
According to statistics, at present, China's annual lighting power consumption has reached more than 200 billion kWh, accounting for 12% of the country's total electricity consumption. With the development of social economy, China's energy crisis has become increasingly severe. It is estimated that by 2010, China's electricity consumption will reach 2.7 trillion kWh, and lighting power consumption will exceed 300 billion kWh. Therefore, lighting energy saving has become a problem that cannot be ignored.
In modern society, lighting has become an indispensable part of people's lives. We cannot ask people to return to the primitive society in order to save electricity, and let them stay in the darkness of no light at night. Therefore, activities similar to the 'light off daylight on the summer solstice' may only be temporary, and it is impossible to do so for a long time. Therefore, in terms of lighting and energy saving, the first way to save energy and energy is to use energy-efficient lighting products.
At present, the incandescent lamp widely used in China (especially in rural areas) is a kind of high-energy consumption product, and the luminous efficiency is extremely low (the luminous efficiency of the electric lamp - referred to as the luminous effect, is to measure how much light can be emitted per watt of electricity. The light effect of the electric lamp is more High means that it can emit the same light with less power, and the power saving effect is better. It only converts 6% of its electrical energy into light energy, and the rest becomes heat energy. The proportion of individual waste is amazing. The energy-saving lighting conversion rate is 10 times that of incandescent lamps. The relevant experts have calculated an account for this: according to China's lighting electricity consumption accounts for about 12% of the total electricity consumption of the whole society. If the existing ordinary incandescent lamps are all replaced with energy-saving lamps, the country can save 600 yuan a year. More than 100 million kWh is almost equal to the annual power generation of the Three Gorges Hydropower Station.
In order to build an energy-saving society, the promotion of high-efficiency power-saving lighting has been included in China's “Eleventh Five-Year Plan” energy-saving key projects. At present, China is using financial subsidies to promote energy-saving lamps. The Interim Measures for the Administration of Financial Subsidy Funds for Efficient Lighting Product Promotion issued in January this year stipulates that for each high-efficiency lighting product of the large-scale users, the central government will subsidize 30% of the supply price of the bid-winning agreement; for each efficient lighting product of urban and rural residents, The central government subsidizes 50% of the supply price of the winning bid. The energy-saving publicity week activities carried out last week in the country also contributed to the promotion of high-efficiency lighting products.
The rise in the price of oil and gas this time coincides with the peak season of China's summer electricity consumption. This is tantamount to ringing the alarm of the energy crisis for the people and awakening the people's awareness of energy conservation. The rise in oil and electricity prices will not only bring significant benefits to the general promotion of energy-saving lamps, but also bring many business opportunities for energy-saving lighting companies.
