EnLight

Energy Efficient and Intelligent Lighting Systems Energy efficiency and sustainability are major concerns in society today. The lighting industry is going through a radical transformation driven by rapid progress in LED lighting, semiconductor technology, and the need for sustainable and energy-efficient solutions.

Intelligent lighting
The EnLight project aims to exploit the full potential of LED lighting through breakthrough innovations in integrated lighting solutions beyond retrofit applications. This includes intelligent lighting systems.The aim is to reduce energy consumption by up to 40% compared with today’s LED systems.

Compact and efficient
The EnLight project is developing more compact and efficient lighting electronics, drivers and controls, which together will lead to optimized LED modules. In addition, developments will maximize the impact of LED by improving energy efficiency and lowering system costs. Finally, EnLight will optimize intelligent systems, which, in combination with advanced sensors and controls, will fuel new applications, solutions and market uptake.

3 year program
A group of 30 leading European companies and academic institutions are working together in the three-year program which is partly funded by the ENIAC Joint Undertaking and the ENIAC member states. Partners include companies throughout the lighting value chain, universities and research centers.

Targeted breakthroughs
The future of both domestic and professional lighting lies in leveraging the intrinsic benefits of LED technology. This will lead to new lighting solutions which are not possible with conventional lighting technology. By building on Europe’s leadership in semiconductor and lighting technology, EnLight will help to shape the lighting market in the years ahead.

Partnership
Partners include companies representing all aspects of the lighting value chain. The consortium is well balanced, including two of the largest lighting industry players, prominent EU knowledge institutions, semiconductor manufacturers, a utility company and innovative medium-sized and small enterprises.

EnLight will deliver new technology and applications that inspire and enable designers in ways far beyond conventional lighting.
