DOE SSL Workshops in Seattle
July 12-14, 2011
The Conference Center at Convention Place, Seattle, WA.
As more and more high-performance, high-efficiency solid-state lighting (SSL) products flood the market, what do buyers and specifiers need to know to make informed choices? What is really needed to accelerate adoption and realize significant energy savings? Industry leaders will share the latest updates and strategies for successful market introduction of high-quality, energy-efficient SSL solutions.
In addition to the 2 day workshop, DOE is presenting a half day of free tutorials for newcomers.
Two guided tours will be offered after hours. The first is a walking tour of selected indoor LED installations in Seattle, including the Pike Brewing Company; led by Robert Sawyer, Seattle City Light energy management analyst. The second is a bus tour of Seattle’s LED Street Lighting Project, featuring visits to local residential and arterial outdoor LED installations. Edward Smalley, Seattle City Light manager of street light engineering and DOE Municipal Solid-State Street Lighting Consortium director, will guide and share lessons learned along the way.
This Market Introduction Workshop is followed by the DOE Municipal Consortium Northwest Region Workshop on July 15 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Seattle. This conference – co-hosted by Seattle City Light and City of Seattle – attracts municipal and utility employees, designers, consultants, and energy efficiency organizations. Though manufacturers, distributors, and their representatives cannot attend the workshop, they are encouraged to refer customers to the consortium and share workshop information.
