WASHINGTON, DC — The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) honored Philips Color Kinetics with award for its progress on an 18-month R&D project funded with a $1.7 million DOE grant.

The LED PAR lamp, which could be made available to mainstream lighting markets later this year, has a performance target of 70 lumens per watt, exceeding the efficacy of conventional PAR lamp alternatives by four to five times.

Of more than 50 companies receiving DOE R&D funding, only a few are recognized with awards. Philips Color Kinetics was honored for the second year in a row.

DOE also honored Philips’ existing eW® Cove Powercore, eW Profile Powercore and eW Downlight SM Powercore with a separate award co-sponsored with the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America and the International Association of Lighting Designers.
