RoadStar™ Luminaire Recognized Winner at NGL2009

February 15th,, 2010


Philips Lumec’s RoadStar™ luminaire is amongst only five LED products in the Street/Roadway lighting category to be named ‘recognized winner’ at the Second Annual Next Generation Luminaires™ Design Competition. The competition rewards excellence in the design of energy-efficient LED luminaires for general illumination in commercial lighting applications.

The judges evaluated white light, general illumination products available for specification in the commercial market. The panel initially selected 47 products from the 126 reviewed as “recognized,” meaning the panel would recommend these 47 products to other specifiers. To be recognized in this category, a product needed to attain at least the judges’ minimum evaluation in all performance categories and to meet or exceed ENERGY STAR® criteria, where applicable.

The results were revealed on Friday, February 12th, and Philips Lumec couldn’t be more proud. “We’ve worked very hard on the design and technology of the RoadStar™, and to be recognized for excellence by such prestigious entities as the IESNA, IALD, and the U.S. DOE is a real honor for us”, mentions Denis Lavoie, VP Sales and Marketing at Philips Lumec.
