GSR 2015 - DISTRIBUTED RENEWABLE ENERGY FOR ENERGY ACCESS

Bioluminescence in FIREFLIES is nearly 100 percent efficient, meaning that little energy is wasted to produce their light. The process of bioluminescence and the structure of firefly lanterns is being used to improve the design of a standard light-emitting diode (LED) to significantly increase its efficiency. This new design could be employed in the near future to produce low-cost LED bulbs and ensure better lighting services. Using energy more efficiently reduces overall energy costs, making energy services more accessible in developing countries.
