Since the European Commission listed photovoltaic as a key enabling technology on February 6, 2012, and the present , the Commission has been making great efforts to promote massive expansion of solid-state lighting (SSL) including the high power LED lights such as the commercial high power LED flood light in Europe to reduce energy costs and promote the development of the lighting industry.
Not long ago, European Commission Vice President Neelie Kroes announced that the European Commission adopted a Green Paper launched a public consultation on the Lighting topic especially LED lighting including the high power LED flood light and other LED lighting, she said: “there is no doubt to develop LED lighting whether the commercial high power LED flood light and other commercial LED lights or household LED lighting to save the cost and create a more healthy environment , please share your thoughts on how to accelerate LED deployment and how to promote LED lighting applications to create more employment opportunities and cost savings . ”
LED lighting particularly the commercial high power LED flood light and other commercial LED lights or household LED lighting can bring many significant benefits and also faces many challenges to become a truly mainstream technology , especially in terms of cost , standardization, and public awareness. The Commission wants to ensure that Europe will not lag behind other major economies which also tried to develop high power LED flood light and other solid-state lighting.
The Commission estimate that lighting account for 14% of total EU electricity consumption of at present, accounting for 19 % of that of the world. But the proportion is rapidly rise in the European cities , these areas account for half of the total lighting electricity consumption , which means the development of high-efficiency LED energy particularly the high power LED flood light and other LED lighting is making a significant impact on energy needs .
However, many of the city’s government is not enough awareness of this point , and some cities are also facing other challenges. In the Green Paper the European Commission , said: ” Many cities do not want to widely use the high power LED flood light and other solid-state lighting in the field of outdoor lighting , mainly because the relatively high upfront investment costs conflict with a tight annual budget and there are some others. reasons, such as lack of quality certification system and developed standards and norms . “Browsing http://www.lead-lighting.com/products/sid125-1.htm for more information about the high power LED flood light.
