LED industry how to "dig deep" rail lighting market?

by Administrator | post a comment

Electric light the development process of continuous innovation, through the incandescent, halogen, fluorescent, and now to the era of fixed light source: LED, OLED. Now the industry has led to a stage of practical application, the LED technology innovation should play a greater LED characteristics, the role of energy-efficient lighting, which is an important event for two years as a public space for the subway, in the construction of lighting facilities, subway stations using most uses LED lighting solutions, not only can save a lot of electricity and a lot of copper, but also to ensure the quality of lighting, while saving a lot of maintenance costs. 

In recent years, with the rapid economic development, road congestion is worsening, major cities have subway construction of underground transportation to ease traffic congestion. Guangzhou Asian Games, the Shenzhen Universiade shine green LED lighting, quietly entered the subway car. LED lamps, also has become a way OFweek semiconductor lighting network iron a beautiful landscape, Jiuzhou Optoelectronics, SFT lighting, Sony source, spectrum of optoelectronic and other companies jostling subway LED lighting market. 

The rapid development of LED lighting technology and in-depth implementation of energy conservation policies, led the LED light source also began to be used for road lighting and subway lighting. In recent years, China's development and production of white LED light source for road and tunnel lighting companies have hundreds, using LED as the light source of the subway line is gradually increasing. 

From the beginning of 2008 in many parts of Metro references LED lighting, subway lighting market began to appear in the field of vision of many manufacturers because of its broad future circumstances, so whether Philips, three male o Aurora and other old lamp prices, or Sony source, history Ford lighting, such as LED spectrum of optoelectronic companies are jostling subway lighting market. 

In 2008, the Hong Kong MTR carry Jiuzhou Optoelectronics LED light source in the world's first introduction as a subway car interior lighting, LED era opened the prelude to the subway lighting. 

2011, the relevant state department issued a "subway place lighting LED lamps technical specifications", details the subway LED lighting procurement specifications for the subway LED lighting opens a standardized way. 

According to the survey, in 2013, the number of domestic subway about 48, while 28 cities are building subway. Domestic subway network in Shenzhen subway for example, in addition to the 2nd line to try to use LED lighting across the board, the rest of the multi-use of traditional lighting, LED lighting market potential can be described as the subway is quite huge. In addition, the former Guangzhou Metro Line sanyuanli, train stations, Yuexiu Park, Memorial Park, Haizhu Square, City Palace, Jiangnanxi, Zhongshan University, Lujiang, off the village, Modiesha, Newport East, Pazhou areas of public area lighting system, a total of 14 stations in 2013 were replaced energy-efficient LED lighting, renovation of approximately 18,000 units the number of fixtures. 

2014, construction began on the subway, generally start led as lighting of choice in recent news, the Shenzhen Metro Line 1 to improve the congestion situation, ready to launch a new car, but in the new compartment interior lighting using China South Locomotive has patented LED centralized power patented technology, as opposed to saving more than 30% of conventional lighting. 

And Shanghai is also in September for the introduction of the 3,4 line led lighting car, car body also uses a lightweight design, older cars lighter by nearly 20%, thus reducing the energy consumption required for vehicle traction. While using automatic PC-type LED, it is possible to automatically reduce the power consumption of the illumination according to its degree of ambient light in order to reduce its power consumption according to the measured data, the use of LED lighting, then the year 50% of the basic power consumption can be reduced. 

Railway tender EMC predicament has hampered the government-led expansion of the subway LED market 

Today, the number of Chinese cities in the subway with the development of increasing year by year, construction of the subway there are nearly simultaneous dozens of cities. But most of the country's metro lighting still use the traditional lighting, such as Guangzhou Metro, a total of eight lines, including the public service area in the field of lighting fixtures are to be replaced, the number of lamps transformation are up nearly twenty thousand sets. And in Paris, the city held a total OFweek semiconductor lighting Netcom the more than three hundred subway station, plus suburban subway station, for a total replacement of lighting up two hundred and fifty thousand, the number shows the development potential here is not the subway lighting immeasurable. 

With the national large-scale commercial promotion model in Europe and America, the Chinese mainland subway led lighting also belong to the government under the auspices of exploratory projects, commercialization of ideas is not yet clear, which gives the cooperation process for the commercialization of domestic led projects caused great distress. 

In foreign subway LED lighting and other large projects, EMC energy contract management mode assume an important role. This new cooperation mechanism by EMC Corporation does not have to bear the cost of the project early in the project, with "zero cost" LED enterprises to expand investment and cooperation, the energy efficiency of LED enterprises in the project implementation process to get the return on investment and obtain profits. 

As "exotic", EMC model in China suffering from a "acclimatized disease", marketing situation is difficult to open. An industry source told reporters: "EMC mode reason why it is difficult to promote in China, in addition to its domestic enough to understand, but also on the existence of barriers to a number of mechanisms." Enterprises and users a low degree of mutual trust. EMC LED enterprises in the implementation of the project will have on venture capital, it can not determine whether the integrity of the owners after obtaining energy savings performance, energy-saving benefits paid on schedule. The owners accept the implementation of lighting retrofits are not certain technologies and products and the company's service capabilities offered by LED companies are excellent. Financing problem exists EMC projects. EMC early in the project implementation, LED companies need to provide a lot of start-up capital in advance, and banks for such business cooperation model of loan requirements are not recognized, leading LED enterprises financing difficulties. 

State taxes on EMC mode too heavy. Since the state did not introduce specific tax EMC model specification, LED energy-saving benefits of the acquired businesses are generally regarded as the increase of energy-saving equipment vendors, included VAT norms, leading to heavy taxation.

Institutional barriers above three aspects of the commercialization process for EMC domestic LED lighting cast a shadow, thus slowing down the process of LED lighting in the subway, railway lighting market. 

Clear policy direction tends LED lighting market promising subway 

Due to the underground subway runs all year round, the control lamp has high demands. It requires not only energy-saving, high brightness, long life, you must also ensure uninterrupted illumination. However, the commonly used incandescent, fluorescent, high pressure sodium lamp and so there are some flaws, there will be some unavoidable lighting failure. 

In contrast, LED with environmental protection, energy saving, long life, high luminous efficiency, no radiation characteristics, extend the service life and significantly reduce energy consumption. And, LED seismic characteristics of strong operating environment is very suitable for the subway, you can do six or seven years without replacement, LED lamp energy efficiency of nearly 50% higher than ordinary fluorescent lamps. 

Therefore, LED has become the best green lighting. Subway stations with LED lights, can not only save a lot of electricity, but can also save a lot of maintenance costs. It also ensures the quality of lighting. LED lighting system for the current problems in the subway, provides a novel structure, low cost, long life, good energy-saving effect, high reliability subway lighting solutions. It is understood that after the national policy of subsidies spared no effort to popularize LED lighting applications, LED lighting products gradually applied in outdoor lighting, indoor lighting in public places and indoor areas. Currently, statistics show significant OFweek semiconductor lighting network, the first quarter of 2013, Guangdong Province in 2013 from January to March of the street and tunnel lights bidding has reached 76,000, while the total amount bid last year was 75,000. Also, the National Development and Reform Commission to phase out incandescent PMO Director Lui Fong, recently hosted the Forum on China lighting China Illuminating Engineering Society pointed out that the promotion of LED lighting products in 2013 will reach 30 million, covering the product categories in the tunnel lights, street lights, downlights, Spotlight on the basis of this year has added a bulb. 

Beijing subway sector plans in 2015 to complete the 100,000 LED lights transformation. According to the department, responsible person, subway consumption continues to grow, energy consumption has become a Beijing subway sectors important work. Starting in 2005, the Beijing subway began to invest 8.5 billion yuan for two subway lines all over 70 transformation equipment systems. Data show that last year the implementation of the Beijing subway-saving LED lighting pilot project, a total replacement of the LED lamps near 2000, the annual saving of 156,000 degrees. This year, the Beijing subway operating company will expand the promotion of green LED lighting, LED lamps are expected to replace the 20,000 estimated annual saving of 1.7 million degrees. 

Edit Summary: 21st Century advocacy resource conservation, ecological civilization, the whole world preach the path of sustainable development path. In this era of knowledge creation economy, the use of energy-efficient lighting people had more comfortable, more environmentally friendly has been the goal of most people. As the emergence of public transportation subway, so green way to travel more than a new choice, and led to the latest technology on the entire station and each carriage, it is for the energy to make new contributions. Use led not only can save a lot of electricity and a lot of copper, but also save a lot of maintenance costs, but also to ensure the quality of lighting. Perhaps the only thing in the past fully staffed fantasy, but now has gradually become a commonplace thing around, so the subway, this led lighting technology, undoubtedly will be more conducive to the needs of the social construction of ecological civilization and sustainable development.
