JOHOR BARU: A new LED lighting technology which uses less electricity but produces brighter and longer lasting light will soon be available.

Greentech LED Lighting Sdn Bhd executive chairman Datuk Syed Elias Syed Ahmad said the company would be the first to introduce the German-based technology to the country.

“The lights, also known as Green Lighting, are widely used in the United States, Europe and China, and we are excited about introducing it to Malaysians,” he said.

He added that the company would be collaborating with Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) to produce new LED products using solar power which would benefit those living in rural areas.

“Our lights are different from other LED products as the bulbs use multiple chips on board design which saves 80% of energy as compared to regular LED lights,” he said.

He said the lights only used up to 50W when installed at homes or offices as compared with similar fluorescent bulbs which used up to 90W.

UTM Innovation and Commercialisation Centre director Prof Dr Azhar Datuk Abdul Aziz said this was a good collaboration.
