The 38th annual High-Benefit Lighting Awards Program is now underway. Sponsored by the National Lighting Bureau, this unique program is open to lighting practitioners associated with a new or upgraded illumination system that provides substantial benefits.

The Bureau coined the term High-Benefit Lighting to connote “function-focused” electric-illumination systems that are designed to fulfill the specific purposes for which they will be used, especially to maximize bottom-line returns for those who own, manage, and/or rely on the lighting.

For consideration in the 2017 High-Benefit Lighting Awards Program, an entry must be received by the National Lighting Bureau no later than December 31, 2017. An entry should document how modification of an existing lighting system or installation of a new one achieved some of the many bottom-line benefits of High-Benefit Lighting, such as improved productivity, increased retail sales, or fewer accidents.

LEDs Magazine hosted its third annual Sapphire Awards at the Strategies in Light conference in Anaheim, co-located with The LED Show and Lightspace California. This was my first pilgrimage to Strategies in Light, and I found the conference fascinating and valuable, though at this stage of industry disruption, there remain more questions than answers.

A highlight of the conference was the Sapphire Awards, in which LEDs Magazine recognized innovative solid-state lighting products.

Check out the winners here.

The city of Aalborg, Denmark was awarded the first prize of the 14th annual City.People.Light award for its innovative “House of Music Area” urban regeneration project. ÅF lighting, the company that designed and executed the project, was also awarded during the ceremony on 4th of November 2016 in Seoul, South Korea.

The “House of Music Area” is part of a larger renovation project that was geared towards transforming the Aalborg waterfront from an industrialized zone into a vibrant university city and buzzing cultural hub. The design embraced the local heritage of the site and used stakeholder analysis to ensure the space was not only attractive, but also inviting to local residents, students and visitors to the city.

“In the new space, lighting intertwines with the natural backdrop of the waterfront creating a unique landscape throughout the day and even at night,” said C.F. Møller, the project’s landscape architect. “The space is adaptive and dynamic ensuring the perfect environment is created no matter the event, exhibition or season. This is achieved through tailored lighting solutions.”

The international City.People.Light award was created by Philips Lighting and LUCI, the international network of cities on urban lighting, in 2003. Over the years, it has honored multiple cities for their sustainable urban development projects that utilize light to enhance the environment and lives of local citizens.
