Research and Innovation for Energy Efficient Buildings and Neighbourghoods from a Lighting Perspective
Lighting is not only about energy efficient light sources; increasingly it is about lighting solutions and services embedded in the built environment. In order to create meaningful solutions close collaboration is required with all actors along the building value chain. The first results of such joint efforts will be shared by the speaker, next to the challenges ahead in order to realize the energy and carbon targets set by Europe for 2020 and 2050.Research and Innovation for Energy Efficient Buildings and Neighbourghoods from a Lighting Perspective
