This blog is for sharing discussions and concepts raised on the LUMENPRIORITY.ORG site. What are your thoughts, critiques, or issues? Is this an interesting concept? Would you like to participate here in developing the details required to make something like this work?
For over 100 years, lighting design around conventional lamp technologies has demanded a sacrifice of energy and an acceptance of higher than desirable initial illuminance levels to accommodate a constant degradation of lighting performance over the life of the system. For the first time, capitalizing on the attributes of LEDs and solid state integration, this compromise can be eliminated. We can now deploy lighting systems that produce a steady state lumen output over the service life of the product and reduce initial energy consumption and total average energy use over the life of the system. This not only increases the quality of a lighting system overall, it allows designers to more finitely define light levels, eliminating safeties and assumptions of losses that create unecessary energy use.
