Cree, Inc. won the top prize in the 2009 Lighting for Tomorrow - Solid State Lighting Competition. The Cree LR6-DR1000 recessed downlight was awarded the Grand Prize. The Cree LRP-38, a PAR38 bulb, and the LR6-HE (high-efficiency) were also recognized with Special Focus Awards for technical innovation and high efficiency, respectively.

The Cree LR6-DR1000 is a high-output six-inch downlight that produces more than 1000 lumens of light output. Targeted for commercial release early next year, the LR6-DR1000 is designed to operate off an input power of less than 13 Watts, delivering an efficacy in excess of 77 lumens per Watt which makes it the most efficient, specification-grade LED downlight.

The LRP-38 bulb features Cree TrueWhite technology to deliver the vibrant color of halogen with high efficacy. Released in May 2009, the LRP-38 is replacing halogen and ceramic metal halide (CMH) lamps in numerous applications including fresh food displays, furniture stores, retail environments and museums.
