    LED lighting a must for green technology future

    Energy Efficiency Illuminates the Lighting Equipment Market for New Growth Opportunities
    Given the increasing focus on reducing energy consumption in North America, building owners and facility managers are looking for ways to manage their energy usage. Because lighting accounts for close to 15.0 percent of all primary energy consumed in the building sector in the United States, according to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), using more energy efficient lighting products such as light emitting diode (LED) lighting solutions can result in a considerable reduction in energy consumption. This briefing will provide an assessment of the lighting equipment market, highlighting the major market trends, challenges and drivers.

      What it takes to change all the lights in New York City

      Replacing all the streetlights in New York City is, undoubtedly, no small job. When the idea of using LED lights citywide came up, however, the city was up to the task. After completing thorough testing in 2009, a project to replace all of the city's streetlights started to become a reality and NYC became a model for other cities to study and follow.

      By 2019, when the project is completed, the city expects to see a 35 percent reduction in energy consumption for streetlights. We spoke with Margaret Newman, chief of staff for the NYC Department of Transportation, about the city's streetlight replacement project and what benefits it is expecting to see in the coming years. Newman will be a presenter at VERGE Boston, May 14, 2013.
