Abstract

To address the environmental impact of lighting systems, new technologies, such as light-emitting diodes, are gaining interest, as they are more energy efficient and result in lower carbon emissions than traditional lighting methods. However, adoption of new energy-efficient technologies is slow, resulting in delay in the decrease of ongoing damage to the environment. This study investigates factors that may play significant roles in successful adoption of light-emitting diodes-based lighting in Malaysia. In defining these factors the modified Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology is used. Relationships between factors for light-emitting diodes purchase decision were examined using path analysis, and a research model of influential factors is presented. Results from a survey of 221 respondents from multiple cities in Malaysia were used to test the model and hypotheses. The Partial Least Square test was chosen to quantitatively evaluate the impact of the key constructs of the modified Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology model: behavioral intention, effort expectancy, facilitating conditions, performance expectancy and social influence. The results confirmed that a modified Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology model could be used to determine behavioral intention of consumers and predict adoption of light-emitting diodes technology in Malaysia. Results show that Performance expectancy, Effort expectancy, Social influence, Facilitating conditions and Behavioral intention are the main factors in adoption of light emitting diodes-based lighting in Malaysia.
