Energy Efficiency Program: Test Procedure for Lighting Systems (Luminaires)

Docket ID: EERE-2011-BT-TP-0041
Agency: Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Office (EERE)
Parent Agency: Department of Energy (DOE)
EPAct 1992 (Pub. L. No. 102-486), section 126, required DOE to support and monitor a national voluntary testing and information program for widely used luminaires that have significant energy savings potential, and to issue a determination as to whether the program developed was consistent with those objectives. The program was required to include specifications for test procedures and labels that will enable purchasers of such luminaires to make more informed decisions about the energy efficiency and costs of alternative products. If DOE determined that these test procedures and labels did not exist, EPAct 1992 directed DOE to develop them for luminaires. (42 U.S.C. 6292 note) Therefore, DOE will develop, as appropriate, test procedures for lighting systems (luminaires).
