Metal Halide Overlooked in Efficient Lighting Discussion, Says NEMA Study

NEMA has released a white paper, "LSD 54-2010 The Strengths and Potentials of Metal Halide Lighting Systems," which reviews the benefits 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.
