Who doesn’t wish they had invested in Apple when it was $16 a share? Quite often, timing the market is more intuition than science. Those who know analog to digital inflection points are watching LEDs. Get it right, and enormous wealth can be created. Time it wrong and you’re left in the dust, like Polaroid. (more…)
LED lighting remains the hottest area of green patent litigation, with several complaints filed in the last several weeks. Green patent complaints were recently filed in the areas of advanced batteries and solar powered lighting as well. (more…)
In a recent decision the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio granted AgiLight’s motion for summary judgment on the remaining claims of two patents, U.S. Patent Nos. 7,633,055 (’055 Patent) (more…)
These days we hear a lot about green light sources. Over 70% of households in the U.S. use spiral CFLs (Compact Fluorescent Lamps) to save energy. If you’re committed to going green in your home or business, you’re probably familiar with the LED (Light Emitting Diode) too. LEDs can be up to 90% more efficient than standard incandescent light bulbs. (more…)
In the last month several green patent complaints were filed in the fields of LEDs, advanced batteries and smart grid.
There have been a number of green patent complaints filed recently in such technology areas as compact fluorescent lamps, LEDs, and battery chargers.
Compact Fluorescent Reflector Lamps (more…)
A number of green patent complaints have been filed in the last several weeks in the areas of biofuels, compressed air turbines, and LEDs.
SWITCH Lighting, a maker of Light Emitting Diodes lights to replace incandescent light bulbs, is now retailing at over 350 participating Batteries Plus stores across the U.S. The company’s LED lights, a more sustainable lighting alternative to incandescent bulbs, save up to 80 percent energy compared with traditional lights.
Another innovation behind SWITCH LED bulbs is that (more…)
While today’s light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs are slightly better for the environment than compact fluorescent lamps, the energy efficiency gap will widen over the next five years as the technology and manufacturing methods of LEDs improve, according to a new report.
In an analysis of the impacts of the light technologies (more…)
A light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor light source. LEDs are used as indicator lamps in many devices and are increasingly used for other lighting. When a light-emitting diode is switched on, electrons are able to recombine with electron holes within the device, releasing energy in the form of photons. This effect is called electroluminescence and the color of the (more…)
