Most potential users of light-emitting diode (LED) lighting do not have large training budgets to independently educate themselves; participation in the Solid-State Lighting (SSL) Consortia is a low-cost–low-risk way to benefit from the knowledge and experience of others. The goal of the SSL Consortia is to help specific members of the lighting community—including municipalities, utilities, and energy efficiency program sponsors—implement LED lighting where applicable and beneficial to save energy and costs. The SSL Consortia serves as an education and information dissemination hub for utility and energy efficiency programs, which in turn educate their customers, retailers, and other stakeholders within their service territories. This on-the-ground education and outreach is essential to meeting the goal of widespread LED adoption as well as reducing building energy use by 50% and building energy costs by $2.2 trillion by 2030.
