Energy Department Announces Winners of Design Competition to Advance Energy Efficient Lighting
May 15, 2012
Winners of the indoor lighting category of the fourth-annual Next Generation LuminairesTM (NGL) Design Competition were announced late last week at the LIGHTFAIR International conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. The competition, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America, and the International Association of Lighting Designers, was launched in 2008 to promote excellence in the design of energy-efficient light-emitting diode (LED) commercial lighting fixtures, or “luminaires.” Solid-state lighting (SSL), which includes both LED and organic light emitting diode (OLED) technologies, has the potential to save Americans $30 billion a year in energy costs by 2030. Advancing energy efficient lighting choices is part of the Obama Administration’s strategy to help families and businesses save money by saving energy, while ensuring American leadership in energy-efficient building technologies.
