Get A Grip On Lighting: An IES Progress Report

The IES just wrapped up its annual conference, and read through the “Progress Report”, which includes a statistic that it has the fewest ever submissions for the progress report. Is that a sign that innovation is in decline for the lighting industry. In addition, out of the products that were submitted, more than half came from just 5 companies.


The hosts discuss why the numbers are declining, and if it’s really an issue of a lack of innovation.

Greg Ehrich, LC is the former President of the National Association of Innovative Lighting Distributors (NAILD) and owner of Premier Lighting, a progressive lighting distributorship.

Michael Colligan is an entrepreneur and inventor. He’s a subject matter expert in commercial and industrial lighting supply, lighting retrofits, and finding recycling streams for hard-to-recycle waste.

The Get A Grip On Lighting podcast on lightED is sponsored by Keystone Technologies.
