Commercial Lighting Qualifying Product Lists

Date Published: September 1, 2022     Document Type: Qualifying Product List (QPL)
Sectors: Commercial, Commercial & Industrial, Lighting - Commercial

The CEE Commercial Lighting Initiative seeks to enhance energy savings by improving the ability of the marketplace to deliver more energy efficient products and practices. Subsequent to the 2015 Initiative revision, CEE now promotes common definitions for energy efficiency in T8 replacement lamps in the form of a CEE performance specification. To support the Initiative, CEE maintains a list of qualifying products that meet the requirements of this specification. 

If you believe there is a product which meets our specifications but is not on our lists, please fill out the submission form to submit a product for review and, if it meets our specifications, listing.

If you have questions regarding the lists or specifications, please review the FAQ or contact CEE.

This CEE Commercial Lighting Systems Initiative can be found here.

The T8 Replacement Lamp Performance Specification can be found here. 

Background & History: CEE launched an initiative for high performance commercial lighting systems in November of 2004, and updated it in 2007 to include reduced wattage T8 systems. This Initiative was updated in 2015 and the specification revised to include only T8 replacement lamps. Enhancments to this Initiative were approved in 2018 including revising the specification to introduce distinct performance tiers for fluorescent T8s and Tubular LED Replacement lamps (TLEDs) in recognition of continued growth and evolution of TLEDs and the structure of member programs. The 2018 Specification also introduces a maximum wattage requirement for T8s, reflecting the diminishing cost-effectiveness and program support for 32W T8s. For more information please see the CEE T8 Replacement Lamp Specification. Qualifying product lists on this page posted before March 2015 are archived lists of lamps and ballasts and reference the previous specifications.

Note on 2018 Federal Minimums

New US federal minimum energy conservation standards (federal minimums) for automatic commercial ice makers took effect January 28, 2018 and are equivalent to current CEE Tier 1 requirements. In the case of self-contained, commercial ice machines, the new federal minimum standards are more stringent than CEE Tier 2 requirements. On January 28, 2018, updated requirements for ENERGY STAR® Automatic Commercial Ice Machines also took effect. CEE is in the process of considering opportunities to revise the CEE Commercial Kitchens Initiative and the CEE Commercial Ice Machine Specification to ensure continued market relevance and role of the Initiative. Revised CEE tiers are currently being investigated for equipment types and performance levels not directly addressed by DOE or EPA, such as advanced performance tiers, water-cooled equipment (closed loop system or a system with a remote evaporative condenser), and connected equipment. A draft revision to the CEE Commercial Ice Machine Specification with a Tier 1 and advanced tier along with consideration of connected requirements is expected in 2021.

From January 1, 2010 to October 1, 2014, the CEE and ENERGY STAR performance levels for commercial refrigerators and freezers were equivalent. As such, CEE did not maintain a separate qualifying products list.  On October 1, 2014, the Version 3 ENERGY STAR specification took effect, which identifies a different level of efficiency than the current CEE specification. As such, CEE has created a separate qualifying products list to assist users in determining what models meet the specification. Contact Laura Thomas at lthomas1@cee1.org with any questions or submissions.
