Welcome to LEDs Magazine’s News & Insights for Sept. 27, 2023. We are creeping into what my husband and I call “the crispy season,” and these cooler temperatures mean more streaming of the sports we enjoy following. Our tastes range from football to basketball to ice hockey.
Conventional sports facility lighting can be high maintenance and energy intensive, though, so switching to LED luminaires – especially in combination with controls systems – can help facility managers and owners gain back some energy savings in these high-priced times, even as the lighting improves both athlete and spectator experiences.
Energy audits are a surefire way to get the most of out code compliant lighting retrofits, as contributor Gina Griffiths Rodda explained in our September issue. This piece provides guidance that is applicable across all building planning, specification, and design projects in non-residential settings.
Meanwhile, Glamox continues to steam along in the offshore lighting market, and ams Osram has plans to use a new German government cash infusion to increase its manufacturing capabilities for a variety of SSL devices serving across display, automotive sensing, and disinfection technologies.
The fall season also means we’re nearing the closing point for our annual LED & Lighting Industry Guide issue as well. There is still time to be included in this buyer’s resource.
