  • Light Emitting Theory of LED Tri-proof Luminaires

    Luminescent diodes, commonly known as LEDs. The light emitting diode is just a tiny light bulb. But unlike the common incandescent bulbs, the LEDs have no filaments and are not particularly hot. They emit light only by the movement of electrons in semiconductor materials. Because the LED will burn out without filament, it will live longer. And the small ...

  • What does decarbonising the UK actually mean?

    How can we get further up the road to decarbonising the UK, and what can we learn from other countries? When the North Sea gas was found by accident at a water well in the German city of Hamburg in 1911, it is doubtful they knew that the discovery would be the toast of British energy companies in years to come. North Sea gas, extracted from the many oilfields that have been ...
