The Department of Energy's Bright Tomorrow Lighting (L Prize) Competition has received a letter of intent from GE Lighting for its entry of a 60W LED replacement lamp. GE is working with Cree to develop a lamp that meets the strict L Prize requirements incorporating Cree's TrueWhite technology. The L Prize is the first government sponsored technology competition designed to encourage manufacturers to develop high-quality, high-efficiency, solid-state lighting products as an alternative to 60W incandescent lamps, the most commonly used lamp in the United States. The competition has already received an entry from Philips Lighting, and testing is underway. For more information about the L Prize competition visit
