DOE Releases Report on FAA Demonstration of LED Walkway Lighting

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has published the final report from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) demonstration of LED walkway lighting. This report, prepared by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, provides an overview of project results which include energy savings of more than 25% over existing lighting, improved illuminance uniformity, and positive user feedback.

The study furthermore found that energy savings could be cost-effectively increased to 50% through a slight reduction in the existing lighting levels, while still easily meeting IESNA minimum recommended illumination levels for walkways.

The DOE Solid-State Lighting (SSL) Technology Demonstration GATEWAY Program showcases high-performance LED products for general illumination in a variety of commercial and residential applications. Demonstration results provide real-world experience and data on SSL product performance and cost effectiveness. These results connect DOE technology procurement efforts with large-volume purchasers and provide buyers with reliable data on product performance.

A PDF copy of the FAA 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: http://www.netl.doe.gov/ssl/techdemos.htm .

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.

Advanced "Super-Planckian" Material Exhibits LED-Like Light When Heated

Advanced "Super-Planckian" Material Exhibits LED-Like Light When Heated Could there be a new kind of light in the universe? Since the late 19th century, scientists have understood that, when heated, all materials emit light in a predictable spectrum of wavelengths. Research published this week in Nature Scientific Reports presents a material that emits light when ... Read more »
