Next Generation Lighting Industry Alliance for LEDs and OLEDs

LEDs have the potential to reach 200 lm/W, compared to the efficacies of incandescent lamps at 15 lm/W and fluorescent tubes at 90 lm/W.

According to the Department of Energy (DOE), lighting accounts for 8% of all energy consumption in the United States and 22% of electricity nationwide.

LEDs have the potential to reach 200 lm/W, compared to the efficacies of incandescent lamps at 15 lm/W and fluorescent tubes at 90 lm/W.

If solid-state lighting (SSL) replaced all existing lights, the DOE estimates customer savings of $115 billion by 2025 and a 10% reduction in greenhouse emission gases.

The Next Generation Lighting Industry Alliance (NGLIA) was formed in 2003 to foster the technical development and commercialization of solid state lighting systems such as LEDs.

The Alliance was designated in 2005 as the “industry partner” by the U.S. Department of Energy for its Solid State Lighting (SSL) program. The SSL Program researches, develops, and conducts demonstrations of advanced solid state white lighting technologies based on inorganic and organic light emitting diodes (LEDs and OLEDs).

The physical behaviors exhibited by solid state materials are substantially different from traditional lighting technologies. NGLIA promotes the understanding, implementation, and adoption of semiconductor light sources in specialty and general lighting systems. The industry will continue to evaluate new technologies and adopt those that fall within the category of solid state lighting category.

Once only used for indicator lights, SSL technology is now found in a variety of specialty and niche applications, including automotive brake lights, traffic signals, exit signs, and flashlights.

Colored SSL is now a viable alternative to conventional lighting sources in many architectural and entertainment applications - from the lighting of exterior facades to stage sets and retail displays.

As white LEDs continue to develop, they too will be applied in higher-luminance applications.
