EU-supported campaign to replace incandescent light bulbs with LEDs launched in Ukraine


The ‘Bringing Light Together’ campaign aiming to reduce the load on the power grid by replacing incandescent lamps with energy-saving LED lamps in Ukrainian households, was initiated at the end of 2022 by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy and supported by President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen. The EU plans to provide Ukraine with 30 million LED lamps.

The large-scale replacement of old-type bulbs with energy-saving ones is expected to reduce electricity consumption on the Ukrainian power grid by 7-10% during peak hours.

LED lamps will be delivered first to the regional centres that consume the most energy and to Kramatorsk, Pokrovsk, and Kryvyi Rih. Then, the district centres will join the programme, and by the end of February, lamps will reach even the smallest villages.
