The Department of Energy has released a report analyzing the energy savings potential of SSL sources for general lighting compared to conventional light sources such as fluorescent.

Using an econometric model of the U.S. lighting market, the report estimates national energy savings if SSL technology achieves certain forecasted price and performance objectives.

DOE forecasts total energy savings of 1,488 terawatt-hours, which is about $120 billion at today’s energy prices.
