Download PDFDownload PDF
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.
