As performance increases and costs decline, light-emitting diode (LED) lighting is poised to become the predominant light source in the United States. Meanwhile, adoption of integrated advanced lighting controls continues to grow.
When people think of the low-carbon economy and the multiple technologies in place that are fueling the growth of green, it is likely that most of them would point to wind and solar as the two most significant and influential drivers of the trend.
Arcadia Electrical Company, Ridgewood, N.Y., installed 341 new lighting fixtures near walkways, playgrounds and parking lots at Polo Grounds Towers in Harlem as part of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Action Plan (MAP), an initiative to reduce crime and increase neighborhood safety at 15 New York City Housin
Only time will tell if 2016 will be the year that the Chicago Cubs' 104-year title drought ends. For now, fans are reveling in new improvements to the stadium and the surrounding area.
The improvements began several years ago and are expected to continue into 2018 or 2019.
The World Wide Web connects 10 billion devices and counting into a global network. Any network-enabled device can establish a link to the internet, raising the potential to join building systems appliances and more.
In April, ELECTRICAL CONTRACTOR was at Lightfair, the biggest convention of lighting companies and innovators. Lighting is a dynamic industry, and the way in which it is integrating with building systems and technologies indicates a greater trend.
Occupancy sensors automatically save energy by reducing lighting after a space is vacated. After more than 10 years of tightening commercial building energy codes, they are a staple in new construction projects.
While the light-emitting diode (LED) has gotten a lot of attention in recent years, another revolution has quietly developed in the background: intelligent (digital) lighting control. The future of lighting is solid-state, and it will be highly controlled.
Be it for selection, verification or refinement, a light-emitting diode (LED) lighting installation demonstration is a useful step in ensuring your choices meet the customer’s desires, needs and requirements. While LEDs are ubiquitous in today’s marketplace, they are constantly advancing.
For the ease light-emitting diodes (LEDs) can offer in providing an effective, low-draw and energy-efficient lighting solution, the considerations to their use are many. The best service you can provide is a bit of mythbusting regarding true LED end-of-life.
