DOE Announces Plans for Municipal Solid-State Street Lighting Consortium

July 29, 2009

To leverage the efforts of multiple cities pursuing evaluations of LED street lighting products, DOE has announced plans to form a Municipal Solid-State Street Lighting Consortium. The Consortium will collect, analyze, and share technical information and experiences related to LED street lighting demonstrations.

The Consortium will provide a forum for entities with similar backgrounds and needs to share information, ask questions, and tap into a large body of knowledge and experience that will help maximize the value of their dollars spent evaluating LED street lighting.

Membership will be open to municipalities, utilities, and energy efficiency organizations (more details will follow soon). DOE expects to launch the Consortium in September 2009. To learn more, visit www.ssl.energy.gov/gatewaydemos_consortium.html.
