“Light + Quality: Meaningful Metrics beyond Energy
Later this month, IES will announce the details of their 2020 Research Symposium with the theme “Light + Quality: Meaningful Metrics beyond Energy,” to be held April 27 – 29 in Orlando, Florida. This will be an important gathering, with some interesting perspectives on valuing the non-energy benefits we so often refer to as “quality.” How to put metrics to better lighting with respect to how it helps improve productivity, or how it reduces mistakes at work? How can we better evaluate improvements in health from quality lighting in assisted living facilities? How can we evaluate the quality of an illuminated environment for its ability to attract and retain top-level employees?
