Lighting for Tomorrow is launching the fourteenth annual competition in January 2016 along with a new website. In an effort to help manufacturers gain exposure and encourage the lighting industry to innovate high-quality, energy efficient designs, Lighting for Tomorrow identifies exceptional products that inspire customers and meet the needs of efficiency programs. Activities for the 2016 Lighting for Tomorrow competition kick off at Dallas Market Center Lightovation January 20-24, where Lighting for Tomorrow plans a booth. Winning products from the 2015 competition will be showcased in a special display at this event as well.
If you haven't yet visited the revitalized Lighting for Tomorrow website, be sure to stop by! The enhanced site serves competition entrants, customers, and the media, has a number of great resources, including information about new trends and insights. In the coming year, the site will be promoted to lighting showrooms as an educational tool. The new website also hosts product entry forms for the 2016 competition.
Since 2002, the Lighting for Tomorrow competition has recognized new residential lighting products that are both energy efficient and exceptional. The design competition looks to leap over market barriers that inhibit the adoption and use of energy efficient residential lighting products. By emphasizing beautiful and highly functional products that appeal to savvy, style-conscious buyers, Lighting for Tomorrow creates a sense of well-being in the home. Along with the Consortium for Energy Efficiency, Lighting for Tomorrow is sponsored by the American Lighting Association (ALA) and Underwriters Laboratories (UL), as well as over a dozen energy efficiency and utility programs across the US and Canada.
CEE is an award-winning consortium of efficiency program administrators from the United States and Canada. Members work to unify program approaches across jurisdictions to increase the success of efficiency in markets. By joining forces at CEE, individual electric and gas efficiency programs are able to partner not only with each other, but also with other industries, trade associations, and government agencies. Working together, administrators leverage the effect of their ratepayer funding, exchange information on successful practices and, by doing so, achieve greater energy efficiency for the public good.
