July 20, 2015: Associate professor at Nagpur University’s Physics Department, JS Dhoble, has been doing research to develop eco-friendly LEDs that will save up to 80-90% power.
Dhoble, whose project is called ‘Development of Eco-friendly LED with a View to Boost the New Generation Lighting’, is developing a mercury-free lighting with high luminous output and low power consumption, which he claims, will be the fourth generation lighting based on LEDs.
Dhoble, whose work was recently showcased at Indian Science Congress (ISC) in Mumbai, has been selected by the Board of Research in Nuclear Sciences (BRNS), an advisory body of the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), to fund the project.
“LEDs require a low operating voltage from three to nine volts. Therefore, it could be powered by solar energy or batteries in areas where there is shortage. Even the rural areas which suffer from heavy load-shedding could get power through this technology at extremely cheap rates,” Dhoble tells the press. “Usage of this revolutionary technology will significantly reduce the power generation expenditure. Subsequently, the load on power stations also reduces and saved energy could be utilized for productive purposes such as agriculture to boost the economy,” he adds.
