From July 21-22, more than 300 lighting leaders joined the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) in Philadelphia for the fifth annual DOE SSL Market Introduction Workshop to share the latest updates and strategies for successful market introduction of high-quality, energy-efficient solid-state lighting (SSL) solutions. The workshop was preceded by a series of tutorials on July 20 for those new to SSL, along with a webcast on evaluating LED street lighting solutions. The webcast, hosted by DOE's Solid-State Street Lighting Consortium, was attended by more than 500 people who participated either in person or online.

A summary report from DOE SSL Market Introduction Workshop has been published, and a pdf copy of the report can be downloaded at www.ssl.energy.gov/philadelphia2010_materials.html.
