This Green Paper proposes to launch a number of new policy initiatives and a public debate in Europe with all interested parties for accelerating the wide deployment of innovative high-quality lighting solutions, which are based on light emitting diode (LED) and organic LED technologies and commonly referred to as 'Solid State Lighting' (SSL). The Green Paper addresses both the demand and supply side.

It first addresses policies targeting European users (professional users and consumers) for overcoming existing challenges for wider market uptake. It then proposes policies addressing the European lighting industry with the aim to foster its leading position and competitiveness thus contributing to the creation of growth and jobs in Europe.
