Is Color Quality Scale (CQS) an improvement on CRI?

Solid state lighting industry at an impasse efforts to replace CRI with CQS (Color Quality Scale) As advances in solid state lighting products, especially LEDs, continue to push into the marketplace displacing incandescent and fluorescent lighting products, it only stands to reason that evaluation methods for these products, such as the measurement of color fidelity, or CRI – now almost 50 years old – isn’t cutting it. As we mentioned in a previous article, CRI has been found to be an inaccurate, unreliable predictor of color preference of solid-state lighting products such as light-emitting diodes (LEDs), which emit a much different […]

Energy Efficient Lighting Basics

The Basics of Energy Efficient Lighting

Modern energy efficient lighting technology is rapidly evolving and is creating opportunities for U.S. businesses and consumers alike to save money and the environment. Lighting represents about 20% of all electricity use in the United States with the cost to businesses and consumers topping $50 billion a year, according to the Department of Energy (DOE). That’s the same dollar amount the federal agency estimates is being wasted annually by the owners of 2.8 million U.S. commercial, industrial and institutional buildings that rely on outdated lighting systems. A company maintaining a standard 50,000-square-foot commercial building can spend up to $45,000 annually […]
