Sustainable Smart Lighting Technology: State-of-the-Art and Roadmap to the Future
July 28 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am
During the last decade, SSL (Solid-State Lighting) based on components like LEDs, OLEDs, and LDs, have challenged conventional technologies. LEDs have turned into a game changer, beating conventional technologies in all aspects. It is therefore anticipated that in the short term, all electric lighting will be based on SSLs. Artificial light production absorbs around 2,900 TWh per year, corresponding to 16.5% of the world’s electricity annual production. Historically speaking, the past century’s research and development has focused on energy efficiency enhancement. Today, we are witnessing a transition from conventional “analog” lighting technologies to “digital” lighting. Intelligent lighting will become the backbone of smart homes and smart cities. This way, lighting will become the heart of the “Internet of Things”. Switching to smart human-centric lighting will drive both “application efficiency” and quality of light. This means that the next-gen lighting systems should provide the “right light” with the best efficiency and quality, when and where it is needed.
