Why LED Lighting?  Using Design, Understanding Technology, Embracing Ecology

Advanced technology has made LED-lighting a good solution for outdoor environments. The unwanted side-effects of traditional lighting: wasted energy, maintenance costs, and the negative visual and environmental impacts of over-illumination, are driving the adoption of LED lighting for many projects. This session covers cutting edge information about human interaction with color, contrast, and glare that enhance the nighttime visual experience while protecting the environment. This session will present concepts that leave participants armed to evaluate LED-lighting for future projects.
