The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), a member of the Global Lighting Forum (GLF), has announced an initiative to coordinate and promote LED (light emitting diode) technology on a global level. In order to accelerate the uptake of LED lighting, GLF held the inaugural meeting of its LED Working Group recently in Shenzhen, China.
According to GLF Chairman Jan Denneman, LEDs hold great promise to revolutionize lighting because of their inherent benefits of energy efficiency, light quality, longevity, and adaptability. "LEDs will play a dominant role in nearly every lighting application," Denneman said. "The world will witness a revolution in lighting that will help reduce energy consumption while enabling the development of new lighting experiences."
