Welcome to LEDs Magazine’s News & Insights for Aug. 30, 2023. We have a variety of news and updates in this week’s lineup. First, Glamox, which has been riding a strong wave of marine and offshore lighting sales, reported its recent quarter income hit a bit of a trough. Still the company offset some negative impact from inflation and looks ahead to smoother sailing.

In another business focus, Fluence assists growers who install horticultural LED lighting with navigating utility programs, which it says has helped customers collect more than $26 million in energy efficiency rebates. Such services could motivate more LED lighting deployments.

Meanwhile, associate editor Hayden Beeson finds that a controversial dorm plan for the University of California at Santa Barbara has been scrapped due to criticisms over its minimal daylighting and exterior views. Our colleagues over at BUILDINGS have published a contributed article summarizing evidence-based design regarding daylighting in architecture that pairs nicely with this report.

Finally, make sure to register for our next webinar, in which ERP Power applications engineering specialist Vachik Javadian will provide an overview of the latest architectural lighting features enabled by advanced LED light engines. As usual, you can attend live or on demand after the broadcast airs.

Please stay in touch about content we publish and to propose contributed articles.
