DOE looks at replacement LED lamps with Caliper report, webcast

The US Department of Energy (DOE) has completed Retail Replacement Lamp product testing through the DOE Solid-State Lighting (SSL) Caliper program. A Summary Report containing the results is now available for download on the DOE SSL website at

This special testing was undertaken to identify and test performance of solid-state lighting (SSL) replacement-lamp products directly available to the general public through retail outlets (stores and websites).

Product testing covered a limited sample of 33 SSL replacement lamps, including five A19, four B10 (candelabra), two C7 (night light), eleven MR16/PAR16, four PAR20, and seven PAR30. The 33 different lamps represented products by 10 different manufacturers and were anonymously purchased from eight different retailers.

The Department allows detailed test results from Caliper testing to be distributed in the public interest for noncommercial, educational purposes only. Detailed test results from this report will be available soon through the searchable online Caliper system.

Webcast: LED Replacements for Linear Fluorescent Lamps

On June 20, 2011, the DOE will host a 90-minute live webcast providing an up-to-date assessment of LED replacements for linear fluorescent lamps.

In this webcast, Jason Tuenge of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) will discuss current Lighting Facts-listed products as well as products evaluated in the latest Caliper reports.

Eric Richman, also of PNNL, will report on a recently completed Gateway demonstration project, in which LED and fluorescent lamps were installed in a variety of recessed troffer luminaires for comparison in an office environment. The presentation will conclude with a discussion of specifications listed in a newly updated technology fact sheet.

The webcast will begin promptly at 1:00 p.m. ET and will include a 60-minute presentation, followed by a 30-minute question-and-answer session with attendees. To learn more, or to register for the webcast, visit the DOE SSL website.
