Lighting Coalition Asks EPA to Lower Energy Star Efficacy Specs for High CRI Lamps

Soraa is spearheading an effort, involving a number of major players in the SSL industry, asking the US EPA to lower the efficacy requirements in the evolving Energy Star Lamps version 1.0 specification -- only impacting products with a CRI of 90 or better. The group believes that more users will adopt LED-based retrofit lamps if Energy Star-recognized options are available with a higher CRI, and therefore the net energy savings throughout the potential US customer base will increase even though the lamps in question use marginally more energy. 24 Jan 2013
