Next Generation Luminaires
The Next Generation Luminaires™ (NGL) Solid-State Lighting (SSL) Design Competition seeks to encourage technical innovation and recognize and promote excellence in the design of energy-efficient LED luminaires for commercial, industrial and institutional applications.
2015 NGL Indoor and Outdoor Competitions NOW OPEN!
BIG CHANGES FOR 2015
Concurrent competitions, with both Indoor and Outdoor winners announced at LIGHTFAIR 2015! In order to maximize the NGL's value to specifiers and manufacturers, the number of categories will be reduced and a more in-depth approach taken. In 2015, both competitions will focus on controllability and serviceability, and will incorporate significantly more stringent efficacy requirements and more authentic installations. But as always, a product's overall specifiability will remain central to its recognition by the judges, with the bar set high on a wide range of performance parameters.
Written intents to submit for both Indoor and Outdoor are due by December 31, 2014 and must be submitted online.
Complete Indoor and Outdoor Design Competition Entrant Guides will be posted on November 24, 2014. Additional details on the judging installations and controls and serviceability evaluations will also be provided at this time.
