Trade Publication
In the article, the author discusses technological developments in the construction industry, particularly in the lighting segment, as of January 2014. He focuses on the introduction of light emitting diode (LED) lighting, which is more energy efficient than compact fluorescent lamp (CFL). He claims that LED bulbs led to the invention of the GravityLight, which is a small generator used to power an LED bulb.
