Fluorescent lamps generate more than 70% of all the artificial light in the world but consume only 50% of the energy needed for lighting. Applications include retail displays, refrigeration cabinets, sports halls, food displays, prisons, hotels, restaurants, shopping centres and many other applications.

A compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) is a type of fluorescent lamp. Many CFLs are designed to replace an incandescent lamp and can fit in the existing light fixtures formerly used for incandescent lamps.

Compared to general service incandescent lamps giving the same amount of visible light, CFLs use less power and have a longer rated life, but generally have a higher purchase price. Like all fluorescent lamps, CFLs contain mercury; this complicates the disposal of fluorescent lamps.

CFLs radiate a different light spectrum from that of incandescent lamps. Improved phosphor formulations have improved the subjective colour of the light emitted by CFLs such that the best 'soft white' CFLs available are subjectively similar in colour to standard incandescent lamps.
