Replacing halogen and incandescent lamps with GE Lighting Europe

Lamp alternatives for more efficient lighting

On September 1st, 2009 a new European Union regulation came into effect, preventing the manufacture of certain type of inefficient lamps for the EU market. The new legislation has been implemented to increase the use of efficient lamps by the public and industry.

The legislation affects standard decorative shaped frosted and white lamps, all non-directional incandescent lamps over 100W, frosted capsules and certain standard linear (DEQ) lamps. ‘A' energy class compact fluorescent products with such finish continues to be available. Clear incandescent lamps, reflector (spot) lamps and speciality types are not be affected. Despite the prohibition on manufacture of these certain lamps, existing retail and commercial inventories can continue to be sold until they are exhausted. GE Lighting is offering a range of replacements for incandescent and halogen lamps. Discover replacement opitions by clicking on the lamps below.
