Welcome to LEDs Magazine’s News & Insights for June 21, 2023. It’s been a strange week since our last newsletter. To me, the most notable industry news is technically filed as a blog memorializing the late Ian Ashdown, who passed away last Wednesday. Ian was a prolific writer and a devoted lighting scientist who frequently contributed to the lighting industry’s knowledge base. We’ve included a link to his most recent horticultural lighting technical feature from our June issue below, and the blog post links his other works and mentions on the LEDs website. I send my deepest sympathies to all who knew Ian.

Also in this issue:

  • The Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance’s BetterBricks initiative provides LLLC insights from lighting engineer and controls designer James Benya.
