LIGHTING FOR TOMORROW 2012 AWARDS
The tenth annual Lighting for Tomorrow competition recognizes the best-designed, energy-efficient lighting products entering the residential market. The 2012 competition featured energy-efficient light emitting diode (LED) lighting fixtures, replacement lamps, fixture retrofit kits, and lighting controls. Lighting for Tomorrow continues to challenge manufacturers to improve their design of solid state lighting (SSL) products that will meet consumers’ expectations.
The competition is designed to stimulate the market for attractive, energy-efficient residential lighting fixtures that use a fraction of the electricity of standard incandescent fixtures. Over the last 3 years, Lighting for Tomorrow, has encouraged lighting control manufacturers to enter lighting control devices with the requirement that they be compatible with energy-efficient technologies, such as fluorescent or LEDs. By encouraging new designs and technologies, Lighting for Tomorrow aims to increase market acceptance and awareness of the growing opportunities in energy-efficient lighting.
The 2012 judging panel held in June at Underwriters Laboratories (UL) University in Research Triangle Park, NC, reviewed a total of 124 products including, 67 LED fixtures, 34 LED lamps, 13 LED retrofit kits, and 10 lighting control devices. This was the largest number of entries Lighting for Tomorrow has had over its 10-year history.
The judges were particularly impressed with the quality of LED fixtures entered this year. Of the 30 companies that submitted LED fixtures, approximately half received some type of recognition. While only four products were selected as winners, nine honorable mentions were selected and one product was given special recognition.
