Your D.O.E. Workshop "Cheat Sheet"

2021 02 Doe cheat sheet.jpg

Your "cheat sheet" to the recent 2021 U.S. Department of Energy Lighting R&D Workshop 


The Lighting R&D Workshop was conducted virtually February 1-4.  It covered research topics, marketplace dynamics, new technologies and scientific reviews.  Presenters represented some leading architectural design firms, manufacturers, academia and industry organizations – among others.

Below are links to the slides of presenters who made them available for DOE publication.  Reviewing the slides online is certainly not the same as witnessing the qualified presenter deliver the information, but we found much of the content, charts, data, etc. to be enlightening and informative.
