DOE to Offer LED Lighting Workshop in Dallas
August 09, 2010
The U.S. Department of Energy's Solid-State Lighting program is sponsoring a free workshop on light-emitting diodes (LED) lighting in Dallas on Sunday, Aug. 15. Presented by Dr. Jack Curran of LED Transformations, the workshop will introduce participants to LED lighting basics and help improve their understanding of the technology by taking a no-nonsense look at how and where LED lighting can help reduce energy use.
Interest in solid-state lighting, an energy-efficient technology based on the use of LEDs, is growing at a rapid pace, fueled by DOE projects funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, legislative mandates, and a consumer demand for energy efficient products. New LED lighting products are emerging rapidly on the market, and it's important for consumers to be able to effectively judge the quality, specifications and comparisons between LED products. This workshop provides vendor-neutral education for participants trying to understand this rapidly evolving technology.
The DOE workshop, which will take place from 1-4:30 p.m. at the Dallas Convention Center, Area D, Room 163/165, is being held in conjunction with GovEnergy, the premier energy training trade show for federal agencies. Admittance to this workshop is open to the public—attendance is not limited to federal employees or GovEnergy participants.
There is no cost to attend the workshop. More information is available on the Solid-State Lighting Web site.
