Released on October 13, 2020, the Draft 1 Technical Requirements for Horticultural Lighting V2.1 proposes establishing eligibility for three new product types that support the qualification of fixtures that enable greater whole facility energy savings and facilitate the transition period from traditional light sources which rely heavily on lamp replacements to a future state in which horticultural fixtures are adopted. The proposed new eligible categories are:

-Externally-supplied actively cooled fixtures
-DC-powered fixtures
-LED replacement lamps for linear fluorescent and HID lamps
