As more and more solid-state lighting (SSL) products emerge on the market, the need for reliable information and guidance is becoming acute. Many people look to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for timely, trusted information on this fast-moving technology. DOE workshops gather our nation's best and brightest to share the latest updates and strategies for successful market introduction of high-quality, energy-efficient SSL solutions.

The 2009 workshop was the fourth annual SSL Market Introduction Workshop, and was hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy and the Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance.


Tutorials provide an introduction to DOE market-based programs, plus a look at appropriate applications for LED lighting and why luminaire efficacy matters.
