Webinar – Lessons Learned from Energy Efficiency Lighting Programs

August 25, 2010

Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Technical Assistance Project for state and local officials, this Webinar featured information about Hawaii's compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) exchange program on the Island of Molokai and about new light emitting diode technology (LED).

About the Presenters

There were two presenters at this Webinar.

  • Francois Rogers – special projects director at the Blue Planet Foundation, will present on Blue Planet's Go Green & Carbon Clean campaign to replace all of the incandescent bulbs with CFLs on the island of Molokai, Hawaii. Three months of the project, more than 36,000 incandescent bulbs have been replaced. Rogers will discuss how the initiative is promoting change in this community.

  • Kelly Gordon – a researcher at the DOE Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) where she works for the DOE Solid State Lighting Commercialization Support program. Gordon's responsibilities include development of ENERGY STAR criteria for solid-state lighting products and management of the L-Prize, a technology competition for super efficient LED light bulbs. She will discuss what DOE is doing to support the adoption of LEDs.
