Albeo Technologies, Inc. Publishes Detailed LED Fixture Efficacy Data

First LED Lighting Company to Directly Address Industry Confusion

BOULDER, CO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 19, 2007 -- Albeo Technologies, Inc. today announced the immediate availability of lighting efficacy data for all variations of their Talea™ advanced LED lighting systems to directly address perceived consumer confusion in the LED light fixture industry. The data is now available at http://www.albeotech.com/pdf/EFFICACY_TABLE.pdf, and indicates how many lumens Albeo's Talea fixtures provide per watt of electrical input.

Albeo is publishing their efficacy data in response to recent reports from the US Department of Energy indicating that consumers may be confused about efficacy measurements and the effect of system elements on overall performance. Because fixture efficacy can vary greatly with color temperature, lot-to-lot LED component variation, fixture design, use of lenses or diffusers, environmental considerations, and other factors, it generally cannot be easily summarized by a single figure for an entire product line. Moreover, total LED lighting system efficiency is also dependent on the efficiency of the dc power supply, a system component typically manufactured by a third party, not the fixture manufacturer.

Albeo is taking the lead in clearing up the confusion around this topic by making detailed efficacy estimates available for all their products. "Even though efficacy may not always be the key customer decision factor, for the times that it is we want to make sure we provide the best possible customer guidance," said Peter Van Laanen, Albeo founder and chief technical officer. "LED lighting is a new concept in a very mature lighting market, and as such, significant customer education is required. As the leading fixture manufacturer and LED lighting experts, Albeo is in an ideal position to provide that information."
