Outdoor Solid-State Lighting Technology Deployment

Solid-state lighting (SSL) technology has the potential to reduce U.S. lighting energy usage by nearly one half and contribute significantly to our nation's climate change solutions. The Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) Outdoor SSL Initiative offers a unique opportunity for the Federal sector to lead large-scale imple­mentation efforts focused on an SSL applications ripe for near-term implementation through a process that recognizes the technology’s potential and challenges. Federal sites can take advantage of outdoor SSL resources tailored to their needs and join the Lighting Energy Efficiency in Parking (LEEP) Campaign, which offers free technical assistance and achievement recognition.

FEMP offers several helpful resources about implementing solid-state lighting.

The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Buildings Technologies Office also offers a wealth of information on its Solid-State Lighting website. Visit the site to find:
