Welcome to LEDs Magazine’s News & Insights for Sept. 20, 2023. It is an exciting time to be involved in solid-state lighting and the associated controls and services sectors, as we are constantly learning more to apply to business growth.

For example, the DesignLights Consortium recently held an informational webinar drilling down its study on networked lighting controls. Associate editor Hayden Beeson outlines some of the key points from speaker Levin Nock, concluding that combining NLC with HVAC systems provides greater energy efficiency advantages in many scenarios.

Furthermore, companies like ams Osram and Signify remain committed to developments in augmented reality devices and horticulture, respectively. While ams Osram’s latest announcement involves a laser diode distribution agreement, the photonics device manufacturer continues to bet on micro LEDs for their potential in the AR/VR market as well. Meanwhile, Signify has extended its research collaboration with Wageningen University & Research, working on horticultural lighting schemes that can reduce energy consumption to appeal to growers who have put off adding greenhouse lighting in order to minimize energy costs.
