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. The awards recognize
excellence in the design of energy-efficient LED luminaires for general
illumination in commercial lighting applications. The goal of the NGL
competition is to make it easier for lighting designers and specifiers to find
LED lighting products that are worthy of specification. NGL-recognized
products are measured on many fronts, including suitability, quality and
energy-efficiency. Of the 176 products submitted for evaluation, only 37 were
recognized in ten categories.

Earning "Recognized" or "Notable" status in the Outdoor Competition were four
Philips LED lighting solutions:

Facade Lighting Category

  oColor Kinetics eW Graze MX Powercore - This compact, high performance LED
    lighting solution provides high quality static color temperature white
    light for washing interior and exterior walls and facades. Color Kinetics
    eW Graze MX Powercore is available in 2700K, 4000K and 5500K, in addition
    to custom color temperatures. Philips patented Powercore technology allows
    the fixture to directly accept line voltage, dramatically simplifying
    installation and lowering total system cost.

Streetscape Lighting Category

  oLumec SoleCity Small LED Street and Area Luminaire – Based on the Philips
    LEDgine platform, SoleCity also offers the flexibility of a modular
    approach, which allows for different LED configurations. This enables the

    unique customer requirements.

Canopy Category

  oWide-Lite Mini 300 LED Gen-2 Gas Station Canopy – A seamless one-for-one
    replacement for HID, the Mini 300 requires no new wiring, simplifying
    upgrades for gas station owners, while reducing energy and maintenance
    costs by as much as 50 percent.

Wall Mounted Area Lighting

  oCrescent/Stonco LytePro16 – A compact luminaire designed for exterior
    wall mounting, the LytePro16 consumes only 40 watts of power, a 50 percent
    reduction in energy usage over similarly sized HID non-LED luminaires.

"Philips continuously pushes the boundaries of LED technology to ensure we
understand our customer's challenges and meet their exacting needs," said
Bruno Biasiotta, President and CEO of Philips Lighting. "This is the fourth
consecutive year that we have been recognized by the NGL competition, which
