Welcome to LEDs Magazine’s News & Insights for Nov. 22, 2023. Here it is, the mile marker on the rush to end of year Thanksgiving week in the U.S. I hope all who celebrate have a safe, healthy, and cozy holiday. I have plenty of gratitude to express this year, including to you our readers for your support and comments about news we’ve reported and features we’ve published this year.

We’ve included a section devoted to the most popular items we posted on LinkedIn this year, and it reveals that company financial updates and applications news still attract a good deal of attention. They do help us to get a read on larger forces and trends at play across the lighting industry.

Highlights in this week’s edition include an overview of company decisions to enter the electric vehicle (EV) charging market by writer Jenny Jones; an automotive push for ams Osram LEDs; and upcoming educational and speaking opportunities for the lighting community. We also rounded up key articles about the impacts of building and energy code on lighting.

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