Ruth TaylorRuth Taylor –  Ruth Taylor currently serves as a program manager on the Advanced Lighting Team at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory where she contributes to several projects focused on the application and development of solid-state lighting.  She began her career at PNNL in 1984 and has managed a number of projects for the Department of Energy including the outreach and deployment activities for the Building Energy Codes Program, the Commercial Lighting Solutions web tool development and implementation activities, as well as the management of the Commercially Available LED Product Evaluation and Reporting (CALiPER) program.

Currently, Ms. Taylor manages the Next Generation Lighting Systems (NGLS) Program. NGLS uses “Living Labs” to conduct observational research in real-world settings—indoors at Parsons School of Design in New York City and outdoors at the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute in Blacksburg, Virginia. NGLS is gathering valuable information on how systems are installed and configured, how well they perform, and how users operate them with the goal of identifying approaches that work, revealing needed improvements, and publishing findings for the benefit of the lighting and energy efficiency communities.
