Hitting the Target: ENERGY STAR® SSL Outdoor Area Lighting Webcast
In this October 8, 2009 webcast, ENERGY STAR Program Manager Richard Karney gave an overview of ENERGY STAR criteria covering SSL-based outdoor area and roadway lighting, outdoor wall packs, parking garage, and canopy luminaires. Jason Tuenge of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory then provided a detailed description of the new criteria, including the Fitted Target Efficacy metric and how ENERGY STAR will use it to evaluate outdoor area and roadway luminaires. The webcast also compared currently available LED products to conventional lighting technologies for outdoor area lighting applications.
