Department of Energy Finalizes Energy Star Requirements for Solid-State Lighting


DOE issues final Energy Star criteria for SSL products effective 30SEPT2007
In an effort to accelerate the market introduction of highly efficient LED-based general illumination products, the DOE is leading the Energy Star management for SSL lighting, keeping tighter control of standards and implementation to avoid the fiasco that compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) endured and are only now just recovering from just in time to watch LEDs steal a significant portion of the market with the advent of newer, higher-output, and more efficient LEDs (click here to read about Cree, Inc.’s XLamp achievements).

The final Energy Star requirements can be downloaded from the DOE SSL website
