Navigating the Energy Star maze for maximum market success (LEDs MAGAZINE)

UL's Matthew Sallee answers pressing questions on energy efficiency and Energy Star certification that lighting manufacturers must understand to bring products to market successfully.

As LED-based solid-state-lighting (SSL) technology advances and accelerates, regulatory bodies are working to develop and publish energy-efficiency requirements globally. Navigating this moving maze can be a real challenge for manufacturers. To facilitate transparency in these program changes, UL in conjunction with LEDs Magazine recently hosted a webcast on the 2011 Energy Star program requirements.

Energy Star and other energy-efficiency programs are vital to consumers adopting SSL. The programs provide consumers with assurance that they are buying quality products. Lighting manufacturers must both design products that meet pertinent regulatory and market requirements, and document and certify those designs to win in the market space, The recent webcast entitled "Energy Star and UL - Maximize your LED revenue potential" was focused specifically on Energy Star certification. The questions and answers below cover the topics that were most asked about by viewers at the live event.
