DOE Releases Report from Lighting Designer Roundtable

April 24, 2008

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has issued the report from the Lighting Designer Roundtable on Solid-State Lighting (SSL), held in Chicago on March 19, 2008. The Roundtable was hosted by DOE, the International Association of Lighting Designers, and the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America. Sixteen lighting designers, along with DOE representatives, attended the one-day meeting to examine SSL market and technology issues and to encourage an exchange of the designers' experiences, ideas, and recommendations regarding SSL and the SSL industry.

Many thanks to the Roundtable participants for a productive and enlightening session. With designers' input, DOE can better address technical issues and improvements in SSL products though its research and development program, strengthen its work with industry to assure higher product quality, develop informational materials, and support effective educational programs.
