EC: Lighting the Future
The consultation was based on the Green Paper Lighting the Future, in which the Commission proposed measures to speed up the deployment of innovative and eco-friendly LED lighting in the European Union and to foster the position of the European lighting industry.
125 interested parties submitted their views on existing challenges for a wider market uptake of LED-based lighting solutions and how to overcome them. Amongst the main findings of the report major concerns raised by respondents include the risk of buying products of unproven or insufficient quality, the lack of information for consumers and professional end users, and high initial purchase costs.
The full report on the results of the consultation on the SSL Green Paper Lighting the Future can be downloaded from the consultation website.
Furthermore, the press release is available on the Digital Agenda for Europe newsroom.
A Digital Agenda for Europe blog has been started.
