  • Brief of the LED Lighting Program of 10,000 lights in 10 Cities in China 0 comments
    Jul 23, 2009 1:59 AM - In February of 2009, China Ministry of Science and Technology initiated the program of ten cities with 10,000 lights separately. Dependent on the application demonstration project of municipal lighting of LED, the ministry chose 10 cities to spread the application of over 10,000 LED functional lights in each city (street lamps, tunnel lamps, functional lights for subways or light rails, gas stations and underground parks).


    Objects: By 2009, 1 million LED municipal lights will be applied in over 20 experimental cities, including LED street lamps, lights for public places such as tunnels, carriages and platforms of subways, underground parks and gas stations. The object of the percentage of home-made LED parts is 60%. The predicted annual amount of saved power will be 220 million kilowatt hours.



    Working contents: As to the selection of experimental cities, those cities with a certain degree of working foundation are preferred, such as the seven industrial bases of LED, areas that hold large-scale activities as World Expo and the Asian Games.


    So far, China Ministry of Science and Technology has officially approved 21 cities to join the experimental unit. The local governments take charge of the implement subjects of projects and report the implement programs to China Ministry of Science and Technology. Besides, the main working contents during the experimental period also include formulating standard provisions to estimate, check and accept experimental work, and formulating product standards and setting up testing platforms.


    The experimental cities include Tianjin, Shijiazhuang, and Baoding of Hebei Province, Dalian of Liaoning Province, Harbin of Heilongjiang Province, Shanghai, Yangzhou of Jiangsu Province, Ningbo and Hangzhou of Zhejiang Province, Xiamen and Fuzhou of Fujian Province, Nanchang of Jiangxi Province, Weifang of Shandong Province, Zhengzhou of Henan Province, Wuhan of Hubei Province, Shenzhen and Dongguan of Guangdong Province, Chengdu and Mianyang of Sichuan Province, Chongqing and Xi’an of Shaanxi Province. The experimental work of LED application projects (referred as ten cities with 10,000 lights respectively) will be carried out in these 21 cities.


    The modeling stage (2010-2012)

    Objects: By 2010, 50 semiconductor lighting modeling cities will have been built in China with the application of 2 million LED municipal lights. The object of the percentage of home-made LED parts is 70%. The predicted annual amount of saved power will be 1 billion kilowatt hours.

    Contents: The work in the experimental stage will be continued, and through testing platforms, the production index and excellent enterprises will be regularly declared. China Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Science and Technology enact the standard of financial subsidies and give subsidies to those modeling cities.


    The promotion stage (2013-2015)

    Objects: By 2015, the semiconductor lighting industry will enter 30% of common lighting markets. The predicted annual amount of saved power will be 140 billion kilowatt hours. And this will enlarge the scale of the semiconductor lighting industry to 500 billion RMB and increase the export amount to 30 billion USD. It will create over 1 million job opportunities and become the world’s top three in the semiconductor lighting industry.


    Contents: To form a mature marketing model and make semiconductor lighting enter 30% of common lighting markets under the guidance of the experimental stage and working experience and foundation.


    The semiconductor lighting municipal tools mentioned in the program of ten cities with 10,000 lights conclude not only LED street lamps. Meanwhile, the Chinese government hasn’t totally established the standard of financial subsidies in the program of ten cities with 10,000 lights now. Since the standard of LED in China hasn’t been published, the standards of testing and acceptance will probably be set up in the form of criterion.


    Most of the LED street lamp projects which are being carried out are the modeling projects invested by local governments. Therefore it is predicted that the large-scale demands for LED lighting tools in Chinese market will appear in the latter half of 2009 or a later period.
