LED Efficiency Soars in 2014

Light-emitting diode bulbs have long been far more efficient than incandescent or even compact florescent bulbs, but that gap has widened even more this year.

The average efficiency of LEDs stood at around 80 lumens per watt in mid-2013, but is now closer to 100 lumens per watt, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. That is far higher than the typical efficiency of CFLs, which ranges from approximately 55 to 70 lumens per watt.
