The high-performance Berkeley Lamp.

The "Berkeley Lamp," a new high-performance table lamp recently developed by DOE's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and manufactured by Light Corporation provides excellent task-ambient illumination while using less energy than conventional lighting. The new lamp's luminous output at full power is equivalent to a 300-watt halogen torchiere and a 150-watt incandescent table lamp combined, yet it uses only 25 percent of their power. The Berkeley Lamp is an energy saver in homes, and a great energy-efficient alternative in offices. This research and development project was funded by DOE's Office of Building Technology, State and Community Programs, with additional support from the California Energy Commission.
