Announcement of ISA-PLDA Partner Organization Agreement


We are pleased to announce that International Solid State Lighting Alliance (hereafter “ISA”) has signed a Partner Organization Agreement with Professional Lighting Designers Association (hereafter “PLDA”) on April 28th, in Beijing, China.


Based on the agreement, ISA and PLDA will jointly, proactively and creatively cooperate in solid state lighting (LED lighting) related fields to promote cross-talk between the SSL industry and professional lighting designers across the globe, to ease the existing barriers or bottlenecks on facilitating the adoption of LED general lighting technology and solutions and to empower the lighting designers on recognition and awareness on LED features and freedom of design. Meanwhile, the concerns and the “wish list” on LED products and systems from the professional lighting community will be conveyed through the SSL industry network, helping LED manufacturers and suppliers to better optimize their services to match up with designers requirements.


With the fast and manifold popularization of LED general lighting products and solutions, there have been various milestone lighting projects in the world from land-mark buildings to historical heritage sites, with successful lighting environment rendition and new innovative designs enabled by LED features. From municipal lighting to commercial lighting and eventually to the general consumer-level adoption, more and more core stakeholders have progressively joined the collaborative efforts to reduce the total ownership cost of lighting, to save tremendous amount of energy and cut GHG emissions through LED retro-fit or new installation campaigns. Lighting designers zero gap dialogue and understanding with LED community has become the quintessential influence and critical step to better embed the LED lighting in their designs and disseminate the successful adoption models to their fellow designers. The partnership between ISA and PLDA will for sure create an effective channel to bridging the gap and usher in a manifold collaboration approach to serve this end.
