DOE Holds 2021 Lighting R&D Workshop Co-Sponsored by IES

Join the U.S. Department of Energy and the Illuminating Engineering Society at the FREE 18th annual Lighting R&D Workshop, February 1-4, 2021, where top lighting scientists and industry thought leaders will gather to share progress, challenges, ideas, and solutions to shape the future of lighting.

Recent events have changed how we live and work, with potentially profound and long-lasting impacts. Lighting technology is already in the midst of a monumental shift to solid-state sources, a shift that continues to redefine lighting and related energy savings, and to open new doors to improved understanding of how light affects human wellbeing and what functions and services lighting can provide. At the same time, digitalization is driving change throughout the built environment, impacting every phase from initial design through operation and maintenance, and everything from devices to buildings to cities.

Future lighting systems have the potential to be more energy-efficient, flexible, and controllable, improve our wellbeing and productivity, streamline maintenance, reduce negative environmental impacts, and increase U.S. technology leadership in research and development of high-quality lighting products.

We value your input and participation, and are designing an agenda that will optimize your experience and provide the same thought-provoking content you’ve come to expect:

  • Interactive expert panel discussions dissect complex science and technology issues, identify future research needs, and unlock the full potential of advanced lighting solutions.
  • A dynamic poster session offers opportunities for one-on-one conversation, as DOE-funded researchers share their work, discuss potential future collaborations, and network.
  • Topic table sessions solicit inputs that inform planning for future research.
  • Networking sessions enable attendees to get to know each other more informally.

STUDENTS by December 4 for the Student Poster and Design Competition.

More details—including a preliminary agenda and registration info—are coming soon!
