Philips Bulb Wins DoE L Prize

Nov 2011
The US Department of Energy (DoE) has named Philips Lighting North America of Somerset, N.J., as the first winner of the Bright Tomorrow Lighting Prize (L Prize) competition. The contest challenged the lighting industry to develop superhigh-performance, energy-saving replacements for the common lightbulb. Philips’ energy-efficient alternative to the 60-W lightbulb cleared a high bar for performance and quality, passing product performance and lumen depreciation testing conducted by independent laboratories and passing field assessments performed by L Prize partners. DoE established the L Prize competition under the direction of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007.
