Comparison Between Lighting Energy Efficiency Standards in U.S., Europe and China

LEDs might be a new lighting product, but it is being widely applied in different types of lighting applications, according to a report from Chinese-language Emerging Industry Strategic Library. To strengthen and advance energy saving technologies, many countries have issued their own LED lighting standards. Lighting was included in China’s energy efficiency standards, which became effective in January 2008, while the Energy Star in the U.S. has set certain energy efficiency standards during the certification process. The EU directive on energy-related products (ErP) covers LED energy savings. In recent years, China has been investing more resources in the R&D of LED lighting standards. The country has established energy efficiency and performance standards for non-directional self-ballasted LED luminaires. According to GB30255-2013 regulations, non-directional self-ballasted LEDs can be classified into omnidirectional, half-omnidirectional (180 degree beam angle) and semi omnidirectional lights. There are three energy efficiency classes based on the starting luminous efficacy (lm/w), as seen in the table below. Non directional self-ballasted LED luminaire performances must ...
