Win Coveted Spots 
MONTREAL, Feb. 14, 2013 /CNW/ - Further cementing the company's position as an 
industry leader in LED technology, Philips has earned four Next Generation 
Luminaire™ (NGL) awards in the outdoor category at the prestigious, 
fourth-annual NGL Solid State Lighting (SSL) Design Competition. Solutions 
from Philips Lumec, Color Kinetics, Wide-Lite and Crescent/Stonco were 
recognized for the sleekness of their LED design, as well as their color 
quality and light uniformity enabled by Philips LUXEON LED technology. 
Held during the Strategies in Light Conference, the competition is sponsored 
by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the Illuminating Engineering Society, 
and the International Association of Lighting Designers and recognizes 
excellence in the design of energy-efficient LED luminaires for general 
illumination in commercial lighting applications. The goal of the NGL 
competitions is to make it easier for lighting designers and specifiers to 
find LED lighting products that are worthy of specification. NGL-recognized 
products have to measure up on many fronts, including suitability and quality, 
not just energy-efficiency. Of the 176 products submitted for evaluation, only 
37 were recognized in ten categories.
