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.
