Helping achieve a greener future ErP legislation for HID lamps
GE Lighting is fully committed to helping customers reduce carbon emissions through more energy-efficient lighting solutions.
Legislation and the resulting obsolescence of non-compliant lamps is driving a rapid shift to more energy efficient lamps. At GE we have a full range of cost effective and reliable solutions to this challenge, enabling the easy and efficient replacement of phased-out lamps in the street lighting and industrial sectors. – usually through a simple relamping option.
Driving energy efficiency
As a member of the European Lamp Companies Federation, we have helped develop the new energy-efficient regulations now being implemented. Among these is the Energy-related Products (ErP) Directive, which sets minimum performance and efficiency standards in the domestic and tertiary (office, industrial and street) lighting sectors for factors such as:
- Lumen maintenance
- Lamp survival
- Colour rendering (Ra)
Phasing out will happen in various stages, commencing 13 April 2012 (tertiary – street lighting sector). Current installations using outdated technology will eventually need to be upgraded either by retrofitting (lamp only replacement) or complete replacement of lamp and ballast.
CMH – cost effective, powerful white light
GE's ConstantColor™ Ceramic Metal Halide StreetWise™ range can easily be retrofitted into existing High Pressure Sodium luminaires with a one to one lamp replacement.
