With lighting evolving drastically in the last few years, particularly with the use and production of LEDs, it is difficult to know what the future really holds. Environmental awareness and energy efficiency are certainly key issues that will be focused on more in the next few years, but the aesthetics and life span are also likely to continue to improve without losing the overall quality of a product and often improving quality too. We have had a lot of fun putting this feature together, speaking to various professionals within the lighting industry. We find out what they had to say about the future of lighting…….


“ Lighting


dictionary meaning for the word lighting, but ways and the future possibilities are endless…….





There is no doubt that LEDs will take over the vast majority of lighting applications within this decade. With this rate of improvement LEDs will rapidly become a relatively small part of the installed cost of lighting systems. The big questions will be around control and power of lighting, as well as integration between lighting and other building services. One thing is certain; lighting is likely to be even more complex in the future than it is today. Solutions that reduce this complexity will be in demand. Marc Ottolini, CEO of Isotera


Against a backdrop of growing societal, political, media and economic pressure on companies to meet their environmental commitments, increasingly, organisations of all sizes are turning to lighting controls to eliminate the unnecessary use of electricity in their buildings. Solutions like the Ex-Or’s MLS Digital Managed Lighting System provide fully integrated lighting management with presence detectors that share information on occupancy patterns throughout a building. This means that optimum lighting conditions are provided only when they are required, significantly reducing the amount of energy wasted to unnecessary lighting. As more and more organisations embrace lighting control systems with presence detection and daylight harvesting, the days of a light being left on in a backroom all day by an absent minded employee are quickly disappearing. This can only be good news for our future energy bills, and perhaps one day the lighting systems in whole towns and cities will be just as intelligent as our buildings. Jason Ng, Marketing Communications Specialist for Ex-Or
