LED Lighting Industry Comes Together to Fast-track Technology into Mainstream Commercial Applications

LED Lighting has been rapidly developing and improving over the last decade, and the technology has improved to the point where it is competing with more traditionally used technologies.

The potential is abundantly clear, but there are still barriers to complete market dominance. Specifiers and lighting designers need to understand and trust LEDs enough to make significant decisions, cost needs to come down, governmental incentives and standardisation need to be evaluated, controls, optics and drivers need to work together and luminaire manufacturers need to understand how and why LEDs are a fantastic light source.

These industry-critical topics are among those under discussion at the LED Lighting Summit, taking place on May 4-5 in Berlin, Germany. Organisers OLED Insider have developed the agenda in response to demand from the global lighting industry. It is designed specifically to increase the diversity, efficiency and profit from manufacturers’ lighting products with the full commercialisation of LED technology.

For luminaire and fixture manufacturers, this could well be the future of business. With LEDs slated to account for between 45% and 50% of commercial and industrial lighting by 2020, it’s little wonder that the LED Summit is attracting the biggest and most influential names in lighting.

With key players from lighting giants Philips, OSRAM and Bridgelux, presenting alongside the European Commission and specifiers from key consumers such as Tesco, Arup and Amey, the summit will light the way for manufacturers to hone their product lines and incorporate the very latest in LED technology.

With over 20 speakers confirmed, and delegate numbers rapidly increasing, it’s clear that LED technology, regulation, design and applications are a crucial focus for the lighting industry.
