The Climate Group; LightSavers International: http://www.theclimategroup.org/programs/lightsavers/
The group is conducting a global trial of LED lamps in large world cities to evaluate product performance. Following this, they will work with these cities to scale up their pilots and partner with other levels of governments to encourage supporting policies.
Dedicated to the advancement of Solid State Lighting in Canada, the network brings together researchers, industries, and government, to foster constant dialogues, knowledge sharing and facilitate collaborative projects between its members.
