Lamps Specification Version 2

ENERGY STAR Lamps Specification Version 2 was finalized on December 31, 2015. The Lamps V2 specification replaced the Lamps V1.1 specification on January 2, 2017. Materials related to the revision process are provided below. Partners and other interested parties with questions can contact Taylor Jantz-Sell (EPA) at jantz-sell.taylor@epa.gov or lighting@energystar.gov.

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. These interactive webinars furthered 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.
