Check out the DOE’s new website for their Solid State Lighting programs. Their site has been a great resource for educational information and the new site makes it even easier to access the information you need. I particularly enjoy reading the CALiPER testing reports, as they document which products are meeting their claims, and (more importantly which ones are not. They show that the phrase “buyer beware” definitely applies to LED products right now! The GATEWAY program is also impressive as it documents real applications of LED products and describes the successes and failures in the field. And, the basic educational materials are well done and provide a great overview. Way to go DOE – my tax dollars actually helping the lighting industry!
