Taiwan to develop LED public lighting

The Taiwanese Ministry of Economic Affairs has launched a NT$700 million ($23.25 million) project to replace 53,000 street lights with LEDs during the next 3 years.
The project, announced by Shih Yen-shiang, will begin effectively in January 2012, targeting the cities of Keelung, Hsinchu and Chiayi, and will involve major local manufacturers.

“This replacement project will not only provide the nation with energy efficient lighting,” Shih said, “it will also give local LED manufacturers a tremendous boost, as the experience they acquire from manufacturing and installing the new lights will help make them more competitive internationally.”
Taiwanese government will put greater efforts to increase standards, and to promote LED industry with 49 new specifications, on matters such as acceptable power density and energy-efficiency levels.
