What is the LED Lighting Facts Programme?

Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy, the LED Lighting Facts programme is designed to provide buyers with detailed information about the photometric performance characteristics of the solid-state lighting products they buy, including lamps and lamp systems incorporating LED technology. The program’s LED Lighting Facts label provides buyers with data on the following performance characteristics:

  • Luminaire light output

  • Efficacy (i.e., lumens per watt)

  • Measured power (watts)

  • Correlated color temperature (CCT)

  • Color rendering index (CRI)

Why is the LED Lighting Facts Programme important?

The LED Lighting Facts label presents accurate and verifiable photometric performance data based on independent testing. As such, the LED Lighting Facts label enables buyers, specifiers and consumers to review and evaluate the photometric characteristics of individual LED lighting products, and to select those products that are most appropriate for use in specific applications. By providing buyers with essential performance information, lighting products that bear the LED Lighting Facts label have a competitive advantage over otherwise similar lighting products.
