New York City is spending millions of dollars on replacing elderly fluorescent lighting with energy efficient LED in the Staten Island Ferry's termini. However the move, which is part of massive city-wide cost cutting scheme, will take years to pay back.
A whole host of experts are set to gather at Lux's Emergency Lighting Conference, which will be held in central London at the end of June.
Each year there are more than 10,000 traffic accidents in Singapore, many of them involving pedestrians. In response to these figures the Singaporean Land Transport Authority (LTA) has launched a six-month trial to see if LED light strips can improve safety at pedestrian crossings.
It is increasingly well known that growing crops under LED light can speed up crop production and change, and even improve, the taste and make-up of a plant. But today, as lighting technology impoves, fewer LED lights are required to create the needed light levels, meaning the technology, for the first time, is becoming an increasingly affordable option for farmers.
Lux’s upcoming Horticultural Lighting Conference in Eindhoven is set to lay out what it takes to get crop lighting right in order to increase yields and profits.
