A smooth and effective transition from old inefficient lighting technology to highly efficient lighting requires further supportive measures and information services for the consumer. The central objective of the PremiumLight project is to facilitate this transition to efficient high quality lighting solutions in households thereby supporting the new legal instruments at EU level in a synergetic way. The central aims of the project are to: - support the EU-Ecodesign and labelling regulations on non directional and directional lighting with accompanying effective information measures and services, - motivate consumers to buy and use high quality energy efficient lighting products by providing them comprehensive knowledge and tools allowing easy selection of good products, - make high quality energy efficient lighting products easily visible and identifiable for buyers at the point of sale, - increase the supply of high quality energy efficient lighting products in the retail market, - support a reduction of the current price barriers regarding LED lamps, - support adequate fact based consumer information on energy efficient lighting technologies via media.
In this page:
- Comprehensive information and demonstration of high quality energy efficient lighting at the point of sale by at least 24 retail chains or retailers groups.
- Involvement of at least 120 actors from public authorities, consumer associations, energy utilities etc. in dissemination activities.
- Cooperation with at least 36 media partners to support comprehensive information on developments and services for energy efficient lighting. Publication of at least 240 articles in total related to the topics of the project.
- Motivation of 10 million consumers to purchase high quality energy efficient lighting products.
- Implementation and use of an international database on high quality energy-efficient CFL and LED products (60 lamps tested within the project).
