NGL Moves on "Easy-to-Install"
Connected Lighting Systems
by Lois I. Hutchinson
 
From 2008 to 2016 the Next Generation Luminaires Solid State Lighting Design Competition focused on quality and design in specification-grade LED luminaires, recognizing improvements through successive generations of the technology. A fresh foray into lighting controls - integrating luminaires, sensors, and software to monitor and control operation - is evaluating the industry's early offerings of connected lighting. To provide insight into different systems' capabilities, configurations, and reliability, NGL morphed into the Next Generation Lighting Systems (NGLS) Competition in 2017.

Circadian Lighting and Demand Response Synergy
Ongoing health and wellness research supports the use of advanced LED lighting systems with networked sensors and controls employing circadian lighting with dynamic spectral and illumination levels. These systems potentially provide several benefits to owners and occupants: better sleep patterns, increased productivity, and feeling significantly more vital, energetic and alert. An ancillary benefit, and a likely motivating force for electric utility programs, is the potential for added demand response (DR) in conventional terms of load curtailment, plus local grid stability capabilities associated with these optimized systems.
