Dublin, Ireland– The world’s first LED replacement for a 60 watt incandescent bulb has won a triple award at the Energy Show 2011, Ireland´s biggest annual showcase for sustainable energy technologies.
The dimmable 12 watt LED bulb picked up both the best innovation product award and highly commended award in the energy efficient category within the domestic sector as well as being honored with the overall product of the show award. After a rigorous judging process, the expert panel chose the bulb, known as Philips MASTER LEDbulb
