This seminar addresses new solid-state lighting developments, with an emphasis on indoor and troffer applications. Participants will learn about best practices to upgrade existing lighting and install new lighting, how to evaluate LED troffer applications, as well as Federal priorities and tools and resources for success.


Brad Gustafson, Senior Research Engineer, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory  

Jeff McCullough is a senior research engineer at the DOE Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. His main area of focus is in commercializing energy-efficient technologies, particularly lighting and HVAC systems. McCullough led development of the first-ever ENERGY STAR criteria for solid-state lighting and most recently completed the Lumen Maintenance Test Facility, which tests submissions for the L-Prize competition. McCullough holds degrees in mechanical engineering and business administration from Washington State University..

Naomi Johnson Miller, Engineer, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
