DAY 1 • Tuesday, April 2
|7:00am - 8:00am||Breakfast|
|8:00am - 8:30am||Welcome to St. Louis!
|8:30am - 10:00am||Solutions-Based Lighting
Lighting solutions that provide high quality of light and control are tools that the lighting industry and utilities can leverage to achieve deeper engagement and energy savings with customers. When harnessed, quality of light can provide more comfortable, productive, and safer environments. Conversely, when quality of light is not addressed, lighting can be uncomfortable and even negatively impact customers. In this panel, we'll hear from leading experts on the latest research on lighting’s impact on human physiology, health, and productivity, and how we can harness this benefit to achieve more energy savings and provide greater benefits to our customers.

We often hear about smart buildings, but what does that really mean? What benefits can they provide? And which benefits are most compelling for the asset manager, the utility provider, or the occupant? What is the role of lighting in smart buildings? Is lighting a backbone of smart buildings or a participant on the sideline? Join us for an engaging discussion of lighting's roles in the smart building's future.
