The European Commission forecasts the intelligent lighting systems will make a significant impact on LED lighting market

The European Commission forecasts the intelligent lighting systems will make a significant impact on lighting market especially the LED lighting market including the outdoor LED flood light. More and more lighting companies are entering the LED lighting market , resulting in the  consolidation of he lighting industry. Customized solutions will become a growth opportunity to the lighting industry .

outdoor LED flood light

Although Europe has Philips and Osram which are two companies and the world’s leading LED lighting manufacturers, the development of solid-state lighting particularly the LED lighting such as outdoor LED flood light is still relatively slow. The Commission believes that the outdoor LED flood light and other solid-state lighting in other countries, especially China , Korea and Japan are rapidly developing thanks to the government ‘s strong support and the national strategy .

McKinsey & Company, a new report shows that the global lighting market size is about 52 billion euros in 2010 , of which Europe accounted for nearly 30 % share. By 2020 , the global lighting market will reach 88 billion euros , and then as the share of developing countries is rising, Europe will account for only 25%.

The Commission said that Europe must address the barriers currently affecting the development of outdoor LED flood light and other solid-state lighting to help the European lighting industry to stay ahead of global competitiveness.

The Commission acknowledged that although the European lighting industry had 150,000 employees, but the LED chip production is very limited. Philips Lumileds is a subsidiary of a major LED chip manufacturer, but Lumileds mainly produce LED chips in San Jose , California and Asia. Therefore , a subsidiary of OSRAM Opto Semiconductors became the only European one production leading manufacturer of LED chips .

Osram and Philips Lighting is the main representative of the European technology and industry influence , but other countries and companies outside Europe is rapidly advancing the development of LED light such as outdoor LED flood light and other solid-state lighting , etc. , which make Europe fear being left behind. the Japanese electronics giant Sharp ‘s “Mega Zeni” LED module provides up to 100 lumens / watt white light effect , which is for indoor and outdoor LED flood light and other outdoor lighting applications .Browsing http://www.lead-lighting.com/products/sid53-1.htm for more information about the outdoor LED flood light.

The European Commission has been making efforts to promote massive expansion of solid-state lighting

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.

high power LED flood light

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.

DOE released 2014 research and development of advanced technologies of solid-state lighting

Following the funded Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer Project(STTR) in 2014 released last week, U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) issued the “2014 solid-state lighting research and development of advanced technologies,” support program, and granting totaling $ 10 million to support new research and development projects this week.

The DOE funding will continue to support its main support categories which are R & D projects of solid-state lighting (SSL)including the LED lighting such as the high power LED flood light over the years: (1) core technology research: basic science concepts used in SSL technology especially high power LED flood light and other high power LED lighting; (2) Product development: the use of foundation or the results of applied research is to develop or improve materials of high power LED light especially high power LED flood light and other SSL with commercial value or devices or systems; (3) United States industry: accelerated to reduce costs and enhance the quality and consistency of the SSL technology particularly the high power LED flood light applied and innovated and improved.

DOE said the program will be able to support up to 10 or so of the project, the project application deadline is February 24, 2014. The National Energy Testing Laboratory will release more information about the program and project reporting on using the high power LED flood light and other SSL December 13.Surfing http://www.lead-lighting.com/products/sid125-1.htm,you’ll know more about the  high power LED flood light which is detailed SSL.
