The world is artificially lit by night and our lighting design is chaotic. What you see from space is energy wasted producing light pollution; what you do not see is its contribution to landfill, global warming, deadly Mercury in our waterways and blood stream, the death of migratory creatures and rapid decline in global insect numbers. Our globe is a symbol of humanties wrecklessness.
Artificial light was once a crucial need of humanity. Once solved, it was rendered back-of-house. The rapid uptake of digital friendly LED heralds a renaissance in light, lighting and light-based technologies. A fresh opportunity arises to change our ways.
The LED luminaire is poised to become the global portal between physical space and the digital world. This paradigm shift has up-turned the traditional lighting industry and will disrupt how we live, work, learn and play into the future.
Once you understand these dynamics and the risks and opportunities ahead, the time to prepare is now.
