DOE Announces Winner of Sustainable Manufacturing of Luminaires Prize

The U.S. Department of Energy recently announced the winner of the Manufacturing Innovator Challenge for Sustainable Manufacturing of Luminaires: the Bamboo Pendant by Brad Koerner, Koerner Design.

The U.S. Department of Energy recently announced the winner of the Manufacturing Innovator Challenge for Sustainable Manufacturing of Luminaires: the Bamboo Pendant by Brad Koerner, Koerner Design.

The DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) partnered with Freelancer.com to hold several crowdsourcing campaigns in order to find innovative solutions to today’s manufacturing challenges and attract broad industry participation. The Manufacturing Innovator Challenge consists of six individual challenges across multiple technologies to find ideas that will enhance manufacturing in the United States.

The majority of LED luminaires still use aluminum and other energy-dense structural and thermal materials in their designs and manufacturing processes. Through the Sustainable Manufacturing of Luminaires Challenge, EERE sought new concepts in solid-state luminaires designed to be manufactured with sustainable, recycled materials. The use of innovative materials in the luminaire design could reduce both parts and manufacturing cost of the luminaire.

Congratulations to the selected winner: Bamboo Pendant, submitted by Brad Koerner, Koerner Design. The winning entry embodies material and energy efficiency while improving building occupant comfort and quality of life. The design incorporates bio-derived and biodegradable, low-toxicity, sustainable materials and is applicable to net-zero-energy buildings. The forward-thinking design anticipates centralized DC power for buildings, allowing for simplified and efficient driver electronics. The design also incorporates simple construction, fast disassembly, and reduced toxicity, which can help realize reduced life cycle costs and liabilities.

The National Lighting Bureau’s first annual Tesla Awards program is now open for submissions. The Tesla Awards recognizes excellence in new construction or retrofit lighting projects that, through the creative use of lighting systems and controls, enhance the value of lighting for occupants.

One key criterion for these awards is the collaboration within the design and implementation teams including: manufacturers, agents, distributors, facility managers or engineers, lighting designers, building owners and occupants, and/or researchers. The value of lighting metrics may include but are not limited to: improved visual performance for those with normal and impaired vision, reinforcement of circadian rhythms, reduction in light pollution/sky glow, improved safety and security, enhanced occupant satisfaction, improved productivity, increased retail sales, etc.

The main intent of the Tesla Awards is to promote best practices in indoor and outdoor lighting applications for residential, commercial, industrial, and municipal projects. Projects will be judged by NLB board members or their designees and a representative of the Lighting Research Center.

Anyone may enter a project for the Tesla Awards and there is no cost to submit. The person submitting the project must do so on behalf of the other members of the lighting project team. Projects should have been installed within the 2018 and 2019 calendar years. Click here to submit a project by January 6, 2020.
