The DOE Municipal Solid-State Street Lighting Consortium shares technical information and experiences related to LED street and area lighting demonstrations and serves as an objective resource for evaluating new products on the market intended for those applications. Cities, power providers, and others who invest in street and area lighting are invited to join the Consortium and share their experiences. The goal is to build a repository of valuable field experience and data that will significantly accelerate the learning curve for buying and implementing high-quality, energy-efficient LED lighting. Consortium members are part of an international knowledge base and peer group, receive updates on Consortium tools and resources, receive the Consortium E-Newsletter, and help steer the work of the Consortium by participating on a committee. Learn more about the Consortium.
DOE offers a variety of resources to guide municipalities, utilities, and others in their evaluation of LED street lighting products.
- Specifications help determine appropriate performance characteristics for a particular lighting application.
- Financing guidance and tools provide information and evaluation assistance for LED lighting investments.
- Demonstrations evaluate LED products in real applications.
Consortium members are part of an international knowledge base and peer group, collaborating to develop resources and tools and to share experiences and best practices. Membership is open to municipalities, utilities, and energy efficiency organizations, with participation at various levels for other interested parties.
