Program Partners Leverage Know-How
and Market Pull

Partners are key to the success of the L Prize competition. Utilities
and energy efficiency programs from coast to coast have joined
the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to promote super-efficient,
solid-state lighting products to replace today’s most common light
bulbs. L Prize partners assist DOE in evaluating potential L Prize
products through field assessments and provide ready-made
markets for winning products.

New technologies are almost always more expensive when first
brought to market, due to low volumes and high development
costs. By joining together to represent significant demand, the
U.S. government and L Prize partners drive sales volumes up and
prices down far more quickly than would otherwise be possible.

L Prize Product Evaluation
Products entering the L Prize competition are evaluated in a multi-step process designed to
provide a high level of confidence in their performance and energy efficiency. Photometric and
electrical testing of proposed products is conducted by independent laboratories, such as those
participating in the DOE CALiPER test program.

Program partners play a critical role in the evaluation process by conducting field assessments of
proposed products. Field assessments use criteria established by the DOE GATEWAY
demonstration program and include:

Installation in host customer facilities, such as homes, commercial spaces, or outdoor

Installation in utility technology demonstration facilities.

Focus group testing with retailers, builders, and/or consumers.

L Prize field assessments:

Evaluate energy use of the products when installed in-situ.

Characterize the lighting system performance as compared to the
existing technology.

Evaluate reliability and customer acceptance of the products during

the test period.

Evaluate criteria for cost-effective deployment through an energy

efficiency program.

Field assessment results provide valuable input for the ultimate selection of winners.

L Prize Product Promotion
Program partners play an important role in promoting and developing markets for the winning
L Prize products. A large amount of quantitative and qualitative data is available to support
promotion of the winning products via:

Product incentives paid directly to manufacturers or to consumers

Collaborative marketing and promotion

Partnerships with local, regional, and/or national retailers

Demonstrations and promotions with local homebuilders, commercial developers,
hospitality chains, local governments, schools, universities, etc.
