Next Generation Lighting Initiative – latest update

The US energy bill containing a section authorizing the Next Generation Lighting Initiative has been passed by the Senate.

Since a different version has been passed by the House of Representatives, a conference committee is being established to reconcile the two versions.

The energy bill passed by the Senate on June 28 can be downloaded at www.energy.senate.gov/public/_files/H6_EAS.pdf. Section 912 describing the Next Generation Lighting Initiative can be found on pages 587-591.
