Abstract:In September 2008, the Department of Energy released their revised Energy Star program criteria for Solid State Lighting (SSL v1.0). The new criteria bring lighting with LED engines closer to becoming a reality for residential customers. While there is still a broad marketing gap to consider when proposing the use of LED light bulbs in RLF applications, the ongoing work of companies like Cree, Light Sciences Group Corporation (LSGC), General LED, Philips, GE and C. Crane Co indicates a significant growth in the area of residential LED lighting. This report will address the future of the residential and commercial LED Light Bulb market.
