Consumers save energy and money thanks to new app that helps to choose the right bulb

Sogeti develops the Lampguiden mobile app for Energimyndigheten.


Incandescent light bulbs consume excessive amounts of energy and therefore the EU decided to phase out these light bulbs by 1st September 2012. In Sweden, the phasing aimed to save 10 percent of household electricity used in homes. However to achieve this, one needed to find a right replacement of bulbs and the average consumer was facing a lot of trouble doing so. There was a great need for education and information.


Sogeti with Granath Euro RSCG developed an app called Lampguiden (for iOS) that helps the user to find the right type of lamp. It gives information on how to save money and the environment by replacing their light bulbs with more energy efficient alternatives.


Lampguiden is a stylish and easy to use app, which helps the user to choose the right bulb through a step-by-step wizard.
