Technical Information Network
DOE's Technical Information Network for Solid-State Lighting (TINSSL) increases awareness of SSL technology, performance, and appropriate applications. TINSSL members include representatives from regional energy efficiency organizations and program sponsors, utilities, state and local energy offices, lighting trade groups, and other stakeholders.
TINSSL members receive regular updates on technical progress of SSL technologies, upcoming meetings and events that address market issues related to SSL, and outreach materials developed for target audiences.
JOIN THE NETWORK
Members are encouraged to use market studies, technical information, and fact sheets provided by DOE as the basis for educational or outreach materials directed at specific market channel members or end users, and to share these materials with other TINSSL members via this site. Members are also encouraged to provide guidance and feedback to DOE regarding additional technical information needs.
GATEWAY Demonstration Results
DOE SSL GATEWAY Demonstrations showcase high-performance LED products for general illumination in a variety of commercial and residential applications. Learn more about results from DOE demonstrations, and how to participate.
DOE supports independent testing of commercially available SSL products, providing reliable, unbiased product performance information to foster the developing market for high-efficiency SSL products. TINSSL members are encouraged to recommend candidate products for CALiPER testing. See the latest CALiPER test results.
Technology and System Specifications
DOE works with partners to develop technology and system specifications that minimize risk associated with implementation. These specifications typically set minimum performance requirements, including any expected test results or data to support those claims, warranty requirements, and other product or system characteristics that specification developers deem important.
