OSRAM OPTO SEMICONDUCTORS AND LIGHTING SCIENCE GROUP COLLABORATE ON LED FIXTURES

OSRAM Opto Semiconductors, a world leader in light-emitting diode (LED) technology, and the Lighting Science Group Corporation (OTCBB: LSGP), a leading designer and manufacturer of super energy-efficient LED lighting solutions, today announced that OSRAM Opto Semiconductors’ Golden DRAGON® lighting product will be utilized in low bay fixtures from Lighting Science for a special lighting project for the City of Raleigh, North Carolina.

Lighting Science Group’s Optimized Digital Lighting® (ODL ®) low bay fixtures, with OSRAM Golden DRAGON LEDs, will replace 12 metal halide lamps that are currently being used to illuminate the pedestrian tunnel that runs from the Avery C. Upchurch Government Complex to the municipal parking garage behind the complex. These highly energy-efficient and economical fixtures will offer a direct alternative to metal halide or high intensity discharge (HID) lamps. Each Lighting Science ODL® low bay fixture will contain 112 OSRAM Golden DRAGON LED light sources.

“OSRAM is pleased to be involved in the lighting project for the City of Raleigh, and to be part of another successful collaboration with Lighting Science Group,” Tom Shottes, president and CEO, OSRAM Opto Semiconductors Inc., said. “With Lighting Science’s fixtures, we are able to extend the use of OSRAM’s advanced LED technology in its Golden DRAGON product into the industrial and commercial lighting markets.”

“The collaboration between OSRAM and Lighting Science is a timely response to escalating concerns over rising energy costs and environmental quality,” said Ron Lusk, Lighting Science Group’s chairman and CEO. “This lighting project with OSRAM Opto Semiconductors enables us to bring energy-efficient lighting to the City of Raleigh, North Carolina, and hopefully expand market adoption of LED lighting to other cities around the world.”

The cool, white light and high color rendering index of the ODL® low bay fixtures provide excellent visibility for improved appearance. In addition, the cost savings in comparison to metal halide lighting are considerable: longer life reduces maintenance costs, high efficiency reduces electricity costs, and solid state technology significantly reduces heat emissions.

The City of Raleigh is at the forefront of LED adoption into lighting applications which include garage and parking lot lights, tunnel lighting, streetlights, architectural and accent lighting, portable lighting and pedestrian walkway lighting. The City expects to complete this LED lighting project by fall of 2007.
