About the L Prize

The
L Prize is the first government-sponsored technology competition
challenging lighting manufacturers to push the limits of energy
efficiency and develop a high quality solid state lighting product to
replace the common incandescent bulb.

 

Spurred by the
Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of 2007, the U.S. Department
of Energy (DOE) established the L Prize competition to replace today’s
most widely used and inefficient technologies – the 60W incandescent
bulb and the PAR38 halogen bulb. The competition requirements complied
with those outlined in the legislation, and included a rigorous
evaluation process for performance which included testing conducted by
independent laboratories and field assessments in collaboration with
utilities and other partners, ensuring the performance, quality and
energy efficiency of the winning product.

Creating meaningful solutions.
LED lighting is changing the world, and Philips is driving the switch
to energy-efficient solutions, and shaping the future with exciting new
lighting technologies.  When the competition was first announced in
2008, we immediately went to work.  As a global leader in lighting and
LEDs, we invest deeply in its future through research and product
solutions. It requires market leading expertise in LED technology, and
an understanding of the complexities and challenges critical to the
development of effective LED lighting – from chips and optics to thermal
control and lamp design. But it’s even more than a mastery of
technology – it’s knowing what people need too. We call it meaningful
innovation, and the Philips LED L Prize lamp reflects this commitment.

 Philips
has been awarded the prize because of the energy and environmental
savings it delivers, but this is one case where everyone wins. Philips
LED L Prize Lamp represents a major technological leap forward for LED
replacement lamps. That means, if every socket in the U.S. converted
their 60W incandescent lamps to this new 10W L Prize lamp, the country
could save approximately 35 terawatt-hours of electricity in one year,
and avoid 20 million metric tons of carbon emissions. That’s enough
electricity to power the lights of nearly 18 million U.S. households, or
nearly triple the annual electricity consumption of the city of
Washington D.C.

Can one light bulb make a difference?

Yes!
The LED L Prize lamp from Philips pushes the limits of energy savings
and bulb life, and is an answer to our energy future that’s really here
today. Philips LED L Prize market-changing lamp, puts the environment,
and your business in the best light.
