SSL Position Paper Released by Consortium for Energy Efficiency

The Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) has released a position paper that identifies the information and test data needed to evaluate solid state lighting (SSL) products. CEE members, representing the energy efficiency program administrators of the United States and Canada, plan to use this product information to evaluate the efficiency and quality of SSL products they will consider promoting to the commercial and residential markets.
 
According to CEE, the Position Paper provides manufacturers with the fundamentals on voluntary energy efficiency programs, including information about how they work and what types of incentives they typically use to promote efficient products and services. It also outlines the technical information that efficiency programs need from manufacturers in order to evaluate SSL product performance and consider it for potential inclusion in their promotional efforts. The Position Paper explains how manufacturers can partner with energy efficiency programs to promote quality, efficient SSL products, and as a result, improve sales of these products over time.
 
By using the approaches outlined in the Position Paper, energy efficiency programs have successfully increased sales and market penetration of traditional energy efficient lighting products, including fluorescent technologies like CFLs and T8 lamps. Program administrators look forward to working with SSL manufacturers to create the same positive outcome for that technology.
