Energy-efficient illuminating devices are very much in vogue primarily due to two reasons one to curtail non-renewable energy consumption and other is the increased price efficiency of these devices due to lowering prices over a period of time. The purpose of the current study is to understand the demand for LED as a product i.e. LED bulbs and LED batten in district Guwahati of the northeast region of India and to find the variation in demand in lighting segment in core and non-core areas of Guwahati in North-Eastern region of India. Energy-efficient illuminating devices like LED lighting has vast potential in India especially in the North-Eastern region which is facing immense power shortages and high electricity costs. The objective of the study finds if an identified top 20 smart city like Guwahati has moved in the direction to adapt the energy-efficient illuminating devices like LED or not. Further, the study intends to unearth the demand implications of adoption or non-adoption of LED devices in Guwahati city for the northeastern region in India. An important argument that appears on the horizon is that energy-efficient lighting at affordable cost is no doubt a must but an equilibrium is sought in the divergent interests of stakeholders involved i.e. consumers, government, manufacturers and sellers whether stateowned or private distributors and retailers.
