Cree Sheds Light on Development of a 200-Lumen-per-Watt Luminaire Prototype

0
Last month, Cree announced the development of a 3000K, 3,200-lumen concept luminaire that achieves 200 lumens-per-watt at a CRI of 80 at thermal equilibrium. The prototype, which is AC-powered, is the first 200 lumen-per-watt concept luminaire, the company says, surpassing a benchmark forecast by the Department of Energy and not expected to be surpassed until 2020. The announcement, which follows Philips’ development of a 200 lumen-per-watt prototype replacement lamp last spring, is evidence of continued efforts by lighting manufacturers to produce more efficient LED luminaires for commercial applications. Architectural Lighting spoke with Greg Merritt, Cree’s vice president of marketing for lighting, about how developments such as the company’s new concept lamp are accelerating commercial LED adoption. -Architectural Lighting
