DOE has just released a market study on OLED lighting, entitled OLED Lighting Products: Capabilities, Challenges, Potential. A related webinar will be held on July 28 from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. EDT.
The second report in a series of three, the new one follows a recent GATEWAY field study documenting the installation of OLEDs as ambient lighting in an office, and will in turn be followed by a CALiPER analysis of commercially available OLED products, based on photometric testing and product teardowns.
The new report focuses on the potential for architectural OLED lighting, describing the current state of available products and detailing the technology and market hurdles that prevent wider use of OLEDs. Most importantly, it tries to bridge the communication gap between the needs and goals of OLED manufacturers, the product needs of the lighting specification community, and the needs of luminaire manufacturers in committing to OLED products. Addressing a range of lighting-quality issues, it concludes with a list of performance features that may inspire the market to develop components and luminaire offerings that will increase application opportunities and adoption of OLEDs.
