DLC Workplan

DLC Technical Workplan

The DLC Technical Workplan is a continually-updated implementation plan designed to provide greater transparency and predictability around DLC development activities and future requirements and specifications. Requirements, specification, and policy development for both the DLC Solid-State Lighting QPL and the DLC Networked Lighting Controls QPL involves input from utility Members and industry stakeholders. The DLC strives to be responsive to the constantly-evolving lighting market and ensure that updates serve the needs and interests of both our Member utilities and our many industry stakeholders equally.

The calendar below illustrates the development timelines for the DLC's currently-prioritized technical topics, including indicators for Draft and Final Policy releases. Click on any topic for more detailed information on development, more detailed timelines, and any available policy documents.
