DOE Releases Oakland Demonstration Report

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has published the report from the Oakland, CA, demonstration of LED street lights. This report, prepared by Pacific Gas & Electric and Energy Solutions, provides an overview of project results including measured energy consumption and illuminance levels, economic analysis, and resident feedback.

A PDF copy of the Oakland demonstration report is available for download on the DOE SSL website. To download the report, or learn more about the DOE Gateway Demonstration program, see:

How to Participate in DOE Gateway Demonstrations:
DOE seeks to establish demonstration teams that typically consist of a product manufacturer, a host site, and an energy efficiency organization or local utility (if applicable). The first “Invitation to Participate” issued in March 2007, and the first demonstrations were initiated in August 2007.

To learn more about the DOE SSL Technology Demonstration Gateway Program, see Frequently Asked Questions. If you are interested in participating in one of the 2008 DOE SSL demonstrations, complete one of the applications below.

Application for Manufacturers
Application for Host Sites
Application for Utilities/Energy Efficiency Organizations

Other Ways to Participate – Coming Soon:
For parties conducting their own demonstrations and interested in widely sharing results, or for demonstrations already under way and wanting to access available resources, DOE is developing a Demonstration Checklist. Demonstrations meeting the Checklist requirements and/or developed using the Checklist may be able to access DOE support on a case-by-case basis. Successful demonstrations developed through this approach will be promoted via the DOE SSL website, events, and other appropriate venues and means.  The Demonstration Checklist will be posted on the DOE SSL website in early 2008.
