  • Content Description: This paper describes the history, technology development, technology transfer and application of the energy efficient compact fluorescent torchiere. A review of the essential efforts that went into the development of the first commercially available CFL torchiere technologies is described. Also included is a review of the performance issues related to lumen matching capabilities. Furthermore, the paper overviews the critical steps and successes that occurred as this technology made the transition from laboratory to marketplace. The energy efficient torchiere promises to have one of the single largest energy saving potentials of any DSM program developed to date. This project represents unique spectrum of industry-laboratory collaborations and addresses an important national energy and safety problem.
