New technologies that impact our lighting community are emerging, converging, and disrupting business as usual. Some are poised to reposition lighting from prominence in the built environment to being assimilated by other industries. LEDs are mature and as that aspect of our market slows, convergence with other trades accelerates.
Why do lighting events feature EV charging products? Are the internet, telecom, HCAC and electronics companies assimilating our industry? Are lighting manufacturers still innovating? The next revolution in lighting is underway and it portends to be larger and faster than the SSL revolution.
How do you position yourself securely during a seismic shift? Anticipating change helps us to prepare for it. Ignoring change is how we become irrelevant. This session will address the changes we currently face, how they will affect skill sets in our lighting community and suggest new skills that will be needed in the next decade and beyond.

Sustainable building certifications are not a fad; they are a must for today’s commercial construction projects. The widespread pursuit of these certifications has not only improved the built environment, but it has also spawned creation of new certifications that go beyond energy code to address health and wellbeing. As we compare certifications, one thing becomes clear, they are similarly based on the same set of standards and codes. While each offers a unique twist, and thus, varying degrees of difficulty to achieve. This presentation will address the use of lighting to Meet the Metrics of three of the most popular certifications, LEED, the WELL Building Standard, and The Living Building Challenge.
