Date Announced: 24 Apr 2013 Lighting Leader Delivers Standards-Based Technologies to Facilitate Hybrid Use of AC and DC Power Philadelphia and Danvers, Mass. (April 23, 2013) – As a founding governing member of the EMerge Alliance®, an open industry association developing standards leading to the rapid adoption of DC power distribution in commercial buildings, North American lighting leader OSRAM SYLVANIA has increased its portfolio of EMerge Alliance Registered LED luminaires, controls, power supplies and modules with the new OSRAM RLS22 LED 2x2 Luminaire. These innovative standards integrate interior infrastructures, power, controls and devices in a common microgrid platform to facilitate the hybrid use of AC and DC power throughout buildings. By developing EMerge Registered products, OSRAM SYLVANIA is helping to provide unprecedented design and space flexibility, greater energy efficiency and improved sustainability for today’s commercial market. “OSRAM SYLVANIA is focused on quality and innovation,” said Jim Sanford, board member, EMerge Alliance and Head of NAFTA Business Strategy, OSRAM SYLVANIA, “which is part of the reason why we are a founding governing member of the EMerge Alliance. The standards established by the EMerge Alliance will help bring about the future of energy-efficient lighting. By avoiding the wasteful back and forth conversion between AC and DC power, better energy efficiency can be achieved with simplified coupling to newer on-site sources of electrical power including solar, wind, bio-fuel cell and other natively DC, renewable energy resources.” The EMerge Alliance will ensure that its standards deliver required solutions based on market requirements and ecosystem approval, buyer assurance with products evaluated against its standards and registered for public view, and increased supply choices in the value chain that spans the needs of different commercial interiors.
