Further details

Organized by the US Department of Energy (DOE), the Prototype Phase of the L-Prize competition seeks to boost innovation in advanced LED lighting fixtures and control systems for use in commercial and institutional buildings.

As the second stage of the L-Prize, the Prototype Phase has separate tracks for Luminaires and Connected Systems, and up to 6 winners will share a prize pot of $2 million. Entrants must register by January 2023, and the submission deadline is May 1, 2023. Both tracks have mandatory connectivity requirements based on standards including D4i and Zhaga Book 20.

The speakers include Gabe Arnold, Senior Engineer with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), who will describe the Prototype Phase and explain the entry requirements.

Scott Wade, Technical & Certification Manager with the DALI Alliance, will explain how the use of D4i drivers, sensors and communication modules will enable competition entrants to meet the requirements for addressability, energy reporting, diagnostics and fault reporting, and many other features.

Adrian Green of Amphenol, representing Zhaga, will describe how Zhaga Book 20 enables modules with occupancy and ambient light sensing capabilities to be directly installed into luminaires via standardized receptacles.

The presentations will be followed by a Q&A session.
