EPA will host Energy Star lighting Webinar on June 8

June 1, 2010
Web event presented by the US Environmental Protection Agency will examine the Energy Star Luminaires v1.0 specification.

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) invites all lighting partners, stakeholders, and other interested parties to participate in a June 8 webinar on Energy Star lighting, including LED-based solid-state lighting (SSL). The webinar will provide an overview of draft 1 of the ENERGY STAR Luminaires v1.0 specification.

We covered news of the draft in a recent article, along with a chronology of the changes in the Energy Star Lighting program. The EPA is looking for comments on the new spec by June 21 – the new spec will replace the existing Residential Light Fixtures (version 4.2) and Solid State Lighting Luminaires (version 1.1) specifications.

The webinar will include both a presentation and a question and answer session. Interested parties are asked to send an email to [email protected] with the subject line "June 8 Luminaires Webinar" and the EPA will respond with instructions for participation.
