Luminaires V2.2 Final Specification (PDF, 706KB) (Effective August 15, 2019)
In recent years, EPA has worked with stakeholders to raise the bar for efficient lighting. Building on more than 20 years of partnership to foster the future success of the ENERGY STAR program for lighting, EPA hosted a webinar series in 2016 and 2017. These interactive webinars served to further the technical discussion, understanding, importance and relevance of key technical topics to the ENERGY STAR program and lighting specifications. Each session featured presentations by multiple technical experts who spoke on the designated topic and provided a forum for open discussion among ENERGY STAR lighting stakeholders. Please visit the ENERGY STAR Lighting Webinar Series web page for more information.
