GATEWAY DEMONSTRATION MUSEUM REPORTS

It’s hard to find a lighting application with aesthetic standards higher than those of museums, where success depends upon showing the artifacts and works of art in the best possible light – literally speaking. DOE has conducted several demonstrations of LED lighting in museums, providing valuable data and experience on product performance in this highly demanding environment. In addition, DOE conducted a survey regarding LED lighting conversions in museums, and published a summary of the results in a report.
