Next Generation Luminaires Design Competition

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.

2016 NGL Indoor Competition NOW OPEN!

The 2016 INDOOR competition will be divided into two separate evaluations:

Application Focused Luminaire Evaluations

    Evaluations will focus on a more limited range of indoor applications targeting specific product types within those categories to further refine the evaluations. Controllability will also be emphasized again this year with a digital controls evaluation of each entry.

Connected Lighting Systems Evaluations

    Evaluations of connected lighting systems for private office spaces suitable for both new construction and retrofit installations will be added to the competition in 2016.

Online intents to submit are due December 4, 2015. View the competition entrant guide for complete competition details.
