The Snapshot Reports are an analysis of the dataset underlying the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) LED Lighting Facts Product List. These reports are designed to help retailers, distributors, designers, utilities, energy efficiency program sponsors, and other industry stakeholders understand the current state of the LED lighting market and its trajectory.
Outdoor area lighting is a major contributor to nationwide energy use, and the market segment has been an important player in the transition to solid-state lighting. This Snapshot Report reflects the LED Lighting Facts database as of July 1, 2013, when LED outdoor area products comprised approximately 18% of the list. This report focuses on outdoor area/roadway luminaires, parking garage luminaires, and canopy luminaires (e.g., those used for gas station fuel pump areas), but also includes overall trends for all of the products listed by LED Lighting Facts. Although the aforementioned products are grouped together in this report as “outdoor area lighting” luminaires, they include products that are used in applications that are not strictly outdoors (e.g., parking garages).
