Objectives

The goal is to identify and to accelerate the widespread use of appropriate energy efficient high-quality lighting technologies and their integration with other building systems, making them the preferred choice of lighting designers, owners and users.

The aim is to assess and document the technical performance of the existing promising, but largely underutilized, innovative lighting technologies as well as future lighting technologies and their impact on other building equipment and systems (ie: daylighting, HVAC). These novel lighting system concepts have to meet functional, aesthetic, and comfort requirements of building occupants.

The aim is to assess and document the barriers preventing the adoption of these promising existing and future technologies (ie: technical, economic, risk factors, resistance to change, legislative, etc.) and propose means to resolve these barriers.
