GE to Submit 60-Watt Replacement LED Bulb for L Prize Competition
Post Time£º2011-08-26 12:11

GE Lighting engineers and scientists are developing a 60-watt replacement LED bulb that meets the specifications for the Department of Energy¡¯s Bright Tomorrow Lighting (L Prize) competition. GE recently submitted a Letter of Intent to the Department of Energy to enter the competition.
¡°The objective of our product research and development is simple,¡± says Steve Briggs, vice president of marketing and product management, GE Lighting Solutions, LLC. ¡°We exist to create advanced lighting solutions based on customer needs and expectations. Our L Prize journey is inspired by the challenge to deliver advanced technology in a form factor that delivers on consumer expectations. We won¡¯t be the first to submit an L Prize candidate, but we believe our solution will more closely match consumer preference for an incandescent look and feel.¡±

GE has collaborated with Cree to accept the stringent L Prize challenge, yet deliver a lamp without remote phosphor, which appears yellow in an unlit state. Cree has designed a custom LED component that features Cree TrueWhite® Technology to deliver superior efficacy and light quality. GE lamp designers incorporated the component into an advanced thermal, optical and electrical system to achieve L Prize performance.

The L Prize is the first government-sponsored technology competition designed to spur lighting manufacturers to develop high-quality, high-efficiency solid-state lighting products to replace the most widely used light bulb in America, the 60-watt incandescent bulb.
