Becoming a Sponsor
Join the select group of sponsors that team up with the Lighting Research Center to test and publish product-specific information to the lighting world. NLPIP sponsors are in a unique position to influence the lighting market.
NLPIP sponsors provide direct input on products to be evaluated. As a sponsor, you receive early drafts of reports. You also receive valuable performance data as well as public recognition of your support and involvement in this industry-recognized program.
The information supplied by NLPIP is a valuable resource for industry, government, and public organizations.
- Energy Efficiency and Utility Program Managers receive the information they need to determine product appropriateness for lighting programs. This information can be used in training sessions and can be distributed to customers.
- Public policy makers can use this resource to choose performance criteria for regulating lighting products.
- Lighting specifiers, as well as end users, can verify manufacturers' claims independently, thus stimulating higher quality standards.
- Environmental advocacy groups can use this information to encourage the use of efficient lighting products.
Sponsors are members of the NLPIP Advisory Board, which plays a major role in the direction of the program. The Board sets policies, procedures, and priorities. It decides which products will be evaluated and gives input for those evaluations. The Board also allocates funds for publications and long-term testing. The level of sponsorship determines participation on the Board. Refer to Sponsor Benefits below for details.
