What are the LED lighting standards referenced in the Energy Star specification?

ANSI (American National Standard Institute) - Establishes definitions of solid state lighting devices and components. It also provides a common terminology.IESNA (Illuminating Engineering Society of North America) - Provides procedures for reproducible measurements of photometry, color and electrical characteristics of solid state lighting products.UL (UnderwritersLaboratories) - Writes safety standards for LED products including drivers, controllers, arrays, packages and modules.NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association) - makes recommendations for mechanical, thermal and electrical interfaces between luminaires.

What is Zhaga?

Zhaga is an industry-wide consortium aiming to standardize specifications for interfaces between LED luminaires and light engines. The aim is to permit interchangeability between products made by different manufacturers. Zhaga defines test procedures for luminaires and LED light engines so that the luminaire will accept the LED engine.
