An American manufacturer has announced that two universities have signed up to its initiative to get campuses to incorporate the technology and save energy.
Cree, the North Carolina-based firm that specialises in production of lighting applications, said that Universities at Shady Grove (USG) has joined its list of academic institutions in the LED University programme.
Indeed, USG opened a car park lit by diodes as it looks to not only save energy but also help protect the environment and reduce out goings, Semiconductor Today reports.
Last week, the University of Western Ontario in Canada signed up to the initiative and believes its range of planned installations, to be put in place this year, could save $750,000 (£489,000) in power and maintenance costs over the next decade.
According to the same publication, 16 institutions are involved in the project including Tianjin Polytechnic University in China.
In addition to its lighting operations, Cree offers semiconductor solutions for wireless and power applications.
