The ABCs of LEDs Webinar: How Solid-State Lighting Is Shaping Sustainable Design
LED and Solid State Lighting technologies are moving forward with extraordinary speed. In the last four years LED efficiency has tripled and will soon be more efficient than high-efficacy fluorescent lighting. The efficiency, small size, and advanced color qualities of LEDs are creating a revolution in how we provide illumination in our buildings and in how we design lighting fixtures. These factors, in conjunction with new energy codes and new federal energy standards, are positively affecting how we can design and build more energy-efficient and more sustainable buildings. In this webcast created for interior designers, architects, builders and remodelers, we discuss the fundamentals of LED and Solid State Lighting, along with the newest ideas in LED and Solid State light sources, luminaires, and lighting design concepts.
