Innovators in LED Lighting is a training session conducted by Therese Lahaie for architects
and lighting designers on the challenges, solutions, appropriate applications and imaginative possibilities of Solid State Lighting technology.
The learning objectives are:
• Identifying the technical challenges of working with LED lighting.
• Identifying the ways that manufacturers are coming up with innovative solutions to these problems.
• Developing knowledge of testing programs and procedures that help specifiers reduce risk when specifying LED lighting products.
• To determine the difference in the way CFLs and LEDs render the full color spectrum and how color maintenance is being addressed.
• To be introduced to the imaginative possibilities of the technology in retail, commercial, hospitality and public art applications.
Innovators in LED Lighting is the result of extensive research that Lahaie has conducted with top lighting designers, engineers and manufacturers to relay an honest assessment of this fast moving industry. The presentation is about 45 minutes long allowing time for sample review and questions.
