Competition at a Glance

SEAD - a Clean Energy Ministerial Initiative - works with manufacturers, retailers, and policymakers to showcase feature-rich, energy-efficient products that provide top-quality services while reducing energy costs. The Global Efficiency Medal competitions demonstrate the levels of efficiency that are possible today, and shine a spotlight on innovative new technologies that can further push the boundaries of efficiency and slash energy consumption.

Lighting consumes approximately 15% of global end-use electricity and accounts for 5% of global greenhouse gas emissions (UNEP en.lighten).

The sixth Global Efficiency Medal competition will advance efficiency improvements in lighting by:

  • Recognizing products with the best energy efficiency performance; 
  • Guiding buyers who want to purchase top-performing models; and
  • Demonstrating the levels of efficiency that are achievable with commercially available technologies.
