[Energy Efficiency Services Ltd.] now plans to replicate this programme in the U.K and considering a subsidiary to push business. Goyal said it should start with large Indian-owned enterprise.
EESL targets to replace 1 million inefficient lamps with LED bulbs in the U.K. initially, covering 10 million households.

The economies of scale coupled with the export earnings would mean good things for energy efficiency industry. India currently accounts for 10–12% of the global LED bulb market.
