Smart Lighting 2012

In the coming years we will see a rapid take up of LED technology by the lighting market. For the next 3-5 years, the retrofit business will dominate underpinned by the ongoing phase-out of low efficiency light sources. While other regions are driving the LED cost roadmap, Europe is in an excellent position to take the lead in adding intelligence to   Currently we experience the transformation from classical light sources like light bulbs to solid state based light sources like LED, OLED and lasers. These light sources offer not just new possibilities regarding the shape of the luminaire, which can now be even integrated in all sorts of everyday products, but also regarding the experience of the light itself.
lighting. By combining LEDs, with sensors and controls it becomes possible to offer light of the appropriate quality when and where needed. The large European ecosystem consisting of a few big players and more than 1,000 innovative SMEs is in a perfect position to make the transition from functional lighting to lighting as an experience. Due to the high initial investment cost, SSL lighting systems and services will also open the way for innovative financing models. Starting with commercial buildings and outdoor applications, ultimately smart lighting will finds its way to everyone’ s home.   While in the old days lighting systems were just capable of brightening up the environment, nowadays state of the art lighting systems can have a positive influence on the well being of the people, increase their performance, help them to relax after a long working days and there are even some medical applications, where light can be used as treatment. The influence of smart lighting on our daily life might be comparable to the influence which the introduction of the first computers had and due to the good balance between big players and innovative SMEs, Europe is in a good position to keep the lead in the smart lighting business and create the lighting solutions of tomorrow.”
