The U.S. Department of Energy’s CALiPER program has released a new Snapshot Report on LED industrial luminaires, based on DOE’s Lighting Facts database. Key findings:

• The efficacy of LED industrial luminaires is notably higher than what’s typical of their incumbent counterparts. About 23% of the industrial luminaires listed with LED Lighting Facts listed products have a luminous efficacy greater than 130 lm/W, the minimum threshold for DLC Premium.
• Listed industrial luminaires have higher efficacy performance than listed linear, troffer, area/roadway and parking garage fixtures.
• Color and power quality for listed industrial luminaires is similar to that of their conventional counterparts. The listed products have a variety of CCTs, with the majority (51%) at least 5000K, and 65% of the luminaires have a CRI in the 80s.
