Product Performance Guides

A working group under the joint auspices of DOE and the Next Generation Lighting Industry Alliance supports the efforts of LED Lighting Facts by developing and publishing guidelines and reports to help deepen our understanding of LED product performance and reliability. These efforts led to the development of the DOE LED Systems Reliability Consortium, a group of industry experts working collaboratively in an ongoing effort to develop an advanced luminaire reliability model for SSL manufacturers and end users. Progress on their efforts is reported periodically at DOE SSL workshops and other meetings, contributing to a consistent, industry-wide understanding of LED luminaire lifetime and reliability.

In 2014, the Consortium efforts transitioned to the Next Generation Lighting Industry Alliance, and the latest in a series of publications on LED product performance and reliability was published.
