Solid State Lighting program takes off

NEMA, NGLIA welcome Energy Star Solid State Lighting program.

10/02/2008


The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) and the Next Generation Lighting Industry Alliance (NGLIA) welcomed the Sept. 30 announcement by the U.S. Department of Energy that the Energy Star Solid State Lighting (SSL) Program has become effective. With consumers in mind, the program will label SSL lighting equipment%%MDASSML%%including undercabinet; recessed downlights; and outdoor path, step, and porch lighting%%MDASSML%%that meet high standards for energy efficiency and performance.

In its announcement, DOE acknowledged the important role played by technical standards and the NGLIA in the program’s development. Members of NEMA’s Solid State Lighting Section have been instrumental in the development of new industry standards for SSL efficiency and performance that are central to the Energy Star product requirements. NEMA also serves as the secretariat for the NGLIA, DOE’s designated industry partner in SSL commercialization activities, of which the Energy Star program is a significant part.
