GATEWAY Demonstrations

DOE GATEWAY demonstrations enable detailed LED product evaluation and hands-on experience that cannot be replicated in a lab. High-performance LED products are selected and installed in real-world applications, providing valuable data and experience on product performance and cost effectiveness. The results often reveal important issues related to installation, interface, and control.


DOE shares the results of completed GATEWAY demonstration projects, publishing detailed reports and briefs on completed projects. The reports include analysis of data collected, projected energy savings, payback analysis, and user feedback.

  • Indoor projects include museum, hotel, and grocery store installations.
  • Outdoor projects include street, roadway, and pathway lighting as well as parking lots and garages
  • Special reports take a closer look at specific topics of interest, such as dimming, controls, and color maintenance.

How to Participate

GATEWAY demonstration teams typically consist of a product manufacturer, a host site, and an energy efficiency organization or local utility (if applicable). To learn more, see Frequently Asked Questions.
