September 9, 2014: Webinar, Dimmable LED Downlights in Hospitality Facilities On September 9, DOE’s Better Buildings Alliance will host a 60-minute live webinar on dimmable LED downlights in hospitality facilities. DOE estimates that there were about 700 million downlight luminaires installed in residential and commercial buildings in the U.S. as of 2012, with LED luminaires representing less than 1% of this installed base. In hospitality facilities, past efforts to reduce lighting energy use have mostly consisted of implementing compact fluorescent lamps (CFL). CFLs offer reduced energy consumption, higher efficacy, and much longer lifetimes than incandescent and halogen lamps, but they also have drawbacks. LEDs improve upon many of these drawbacks and offer an attractive combination of additional energy savings, longer lifetimes, and other lighting and control benefits.
