"The Morning Briefing" is SmartPlanet's daily roundup of must-reads from the web. This morning we're reading about LED lighting uses and savings.

1.) LEDs will dominate lighting, expert predicts at Holonyak symposium. Energy-conscious consumers who've made the switch to fluorescent replacement bulbs may be swapping them out for a more efficient lighting system in a few years.

2.) Wi-Fi LED light bulbs: Gateway to the smart home? Greenwave Reality's LEDs can be controlled from a smartphone. Will they sell because they're cool or because they can save energy?

3.) LED lights help museum save energy, preserve items. A spectacular collection of original oil paintings by emeritus Indiana University art professor Barry Gealt are illuminated by clean, cool, white lights, while the other exhibits bask in a warm, yellowish glow.

4.) Seesmart LED lighting helps Cerebral Palsy in NY be LEED certified. LED lighting manufacturer Seesmart Technologies, Inc. has completed a $140,000 project with Cerebral Palsy Associations of New York State that will help the organization's new West Farms Center achieve LEED design certification.

5.) Hey there, LED lamp-post, whatcha saving? Shipments of LED street lighting will accelerate over the next seven years, but the motivation for installation isn't just reduced energy consumption.
