ATLANTA – Acuity Brands, Inc. (NYSE:AYI) will demonstrate its energy-efficient and sustainable lighting solutions featuring Sunoptics® skylights integrated with LED lighting and wireless controls during the 2014 Greenbuild® International Conference and Expo, October 22 – 23 in New Orleans at booth #517. Acuity Brands daylighting systems deliver quality lighting through the optimization of natural and electric light, significantly reducing energy use and operating costs for industrial, warehouse and retail applications. Its daylighting systems include the LightFlexTM tubular daylighting featuring a high-performance prismatic optical system, ideal for suspended ceiling applications such as classrooms and commercial office spaces.

“Effective use of daylighting is a viable method to create truly sustainable, energy-efficient buildings, and even more so when integrated into a total lighting system,” said Pete Shannin, Acuity Brands Lighting Vice President, Daylighting Product Solutions. “Our daylighting product solutions – networked to create an entire system – work together to drive down energy costs and inefficiencies, while providing better lighting environments to work, shop and learn. As one manufacturer engineering the daylighting, controls and LED lighting technologies, users can be confident our products work together seamlessly together to deliver the best results possible.”
