Recently, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) began the process of revising the current ENERGY STAR Lamp program specifications. It’s anticipated that the new version 2 specification will be completed in June of this year.
The program’s product scope is limited to lamp types that are intended to replace incandescent bulbs. Lamps must have integrated ballasts and drivers with rated nominal operating voltages of 120, 240, and 270 VAC, or 12 or 24 VAC or VDC. They should also conform to ANSI standard base types E26, E26d, E17, E11, E12, GU24, GU5.3, and GX5.3.
