DC Lighting: Empowering Our Digital Future
by Lois I. Hutchinson
 
LEDs are innately DC, so DC power for LED lighting is natural fit. But with a wide variety of system configurations and lack of standards - or is it too many standards? - DC lighting faces formidable challenges from 100 years of AC infrastructure. Even where system intelligence benefits energy managers and the grid, it will likely take another decade for the advantages of DC-powered lighting and appliances to capture the construction industry.

There Has Never Been a Better Time to Be a Part of the IES
"There has never been a better time to be a part of the IES..." that was IES President Lance Eaton's Opening remarks at the IES Annual Conference Held in Boston, MA on August 8-11, 2018. This remark alone set a tone for a very positive multiple day event in which multiple speakers discussed the plan that IES set in motion back in 2014 for the future of IES. Since IES was founded in 1906 the Industry has never moved forward more quickly and as Lance quoted from Tony Fadell (Co-Creator of the Apple iPod) "today is the slowest we will ever go". This could not be any more true.
