The goal is to work with
the higher-end residential fixture manufacturers to
develop 4 to 8 residential ENERGY STAR table and floor
lamp fixtures. An additional goal is to work with the
Showroom Lamp companies, American Lighting Association
(ALA), EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), CEE (Consortium
for Energy Efficiency) and other groups to help guide
the specifications needed for market acceptance of these
new high-efficiency fixtures for the California market.
Applied Proactive Technologies, Inc. (APT) is leading the research and development work for this project.
project meets the PIER Goal of Improving the Energy
Cost/Value of California's electricity by accelerating
the production of energy efficient lighting products.
The secondary goal of this project would be to improve
the reliability of California's electricity supply by
creating a sustainable market for lighting products
that produce the same light output as traditional sources
while consuming 75 percent less electricity.
goal of this project is to increase availability of
high-efficiency residential lighting fixtures in the
California marketplace. The objective of this project
is to develop and test new energy efficient, ENERGY
STAR lighting fixture products. Through this project,
selected manufacturers will be able to reduce their
costs of R&D and testing by up to 50 percent. This,
in turn, will provide a springboard for them to take
the next step in producing quality, reliable, efficient
ENERGY STAR rated lighting fixtures on a continued and
The aim is to increase the number of innovative, efficient lighting fixtures that are developed, manufactured and made available for sale in the California marketplace. California utilities and the ratepayers will benefit from up to a 75 percent reduction in energy consumed for up to 35 years per fixture (the estimated average life of a residential lighting fixture).
