September 9, 2014: Webinar, Dimmable LED Downlights in Hospitality Facilities On September 9, DOE’s Better Buildings Alliance will host a 60-minute live webinar on dimmable LED downlights in hospitality facilities. DOE estimates that there were about 700 million downlight luminaires installed in residential and commercial buildings in the U.S. as of 2012, with LED luminaires representing less than 1% of this installed base. In hospitality facilities, past efforts to reduce lighting energy use have mostly consisted of implementing compact fluorescent lamps (CFL). CFLs offer reduced energy consumption, higher efficacy, and much longer lifetimes than incandescent and halogen lamps, but they also have drawbacks. LEDs improve upon many of these drawbacks and offer an attractive combination of additional energy savings, longer lifetimes, and other lighting and control benefits.

January 27-29, 2015: SSL R&D Workshop In 2015, DOE will consolidate its SSL R&D and Manufacturing R&D workshops into a single R&D meeting. The 2015 R&D Workshop will feature thought-provoking insights from our nation's top researchers and thought leaders. Participants will dissect the most complex science and technology challenges facing SSL today and look at new ways to improve manufacturing processes and foster U.S. competitiveness. Separate LED and OLED breakout sessions will enable in-depth discussion of key issues related to advancing both of these technologies. Input will guide the development of a single DOE SSL R&D plan, which in turn will guide the development of future DOE solicitations.
