NEMA Publishes White Paper on Metal-Halide Lighting Systems

The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has published LSD 54-2010, "The Strengths and Potentials of Metal-Halide Lighting Systems." This new white paper, developed by the NEMA Lamp Section, reviews the beneficial characteristics of metal-halide high-intensity discharge (HID) lighting, including high energy efficiency and viability in outdoor and other lighting applications. The paper argues for the inclusion of HID lamps in Energy Star requirements and for allocations of federal funding to help propel further research and development.
