- Opening Remarks - BIS INFOTECH & MESSE FRANKFURT
- Inaugral Address - EESL / Ministry of Power, Government of India
Lighting has long been a tool in the fight against anti-social behaviour, vandalism, crime and suicides in our cities. But increasingly we are beginning to understand that brighter lighting is not always better; it’s the intelligent application of lighting – both static and dynamic – that is creating the real breakthroughs and leading to reductions in both crime and the fear of crime in our urban environments.
There are many projects in the pipeline, including major improvements to transport networks such as roads, rail, airports and ports as well as large-scale energy, utility and regeneration projects. It’s a once-in-a-generation opportunity to deliver best practice lighting that will represent innovation, value and a human approach to creating welcoming and effective spaces for people.
Despite conventional wisdom, workplaces are deceptively difficult places to light well. They are also one of the few categories of lighting with solid restrictions on light level and do’s and don’ts. Few will suffer if your building façade is lit to 20 lux not 50; make a similar mistake in the workplace and you could have a lawsuit. This conference will show you how to create great spaces that boost productivity and well being.
"The LED revolution has happened – but the downside is prices are falling fast and it’s increasingly difficult to differentiate product. Lux can help. We’ve curated a timely conference to help you map out your strategy for the digital lighting world. We’ll look at all the critical issues with expert speakers so you gain the insights to move forward with confidence
The future of the lighting market is surging forward as scientists continue to research the newer products to manufacture LED. With so many advantages and potential applications, LED is sure to succeed in large markets such as India. Thus, LED light manufacturing is a profitable investment opportunity for the new entrepreneurs.
"Energy efficiency assumes significance for the nation in the current environment of shortages and concerns over climate change. Lighting itself accounts for about 20% of the total electricity consumption in India. Hon’ble Prime Minister, on 5th January, 2015 launched the Unnat Jyoti by Affordable LEDs for All(UJALA) to provide LED bulbs to domestic consumers with a target to replace 770 million incandescent bulbs with LED bulbs by March, 2019."
