Silver Spring, MD – National Lighting Bureau (NLB) Chair Howard P. Lewis sounded

a strongly optimistic note in his December 7 annual- report address to the Bureau’s

board of directors. “I think we are on the cusp of a major resurgence for the lighting

industry, and more and better lighting for just about everyone,” he said. “The year now

ending – 2012 – is, I believe, the last year of a four-year economy that has inhibited

widespread reliance on what’s new in lighting. Within the next few months, we will see

the recessionary clouds yield to a reviving economy led by a residential-housing sector

that is particularly important to the lighting community. Light commercial construction

will follow, then commercial and industrial development and, also particularly important,

accelerated commercial renovation. In fact, lighting could be the most important part of

that renovation, because lighting – being the most visible energy-consuming system –

contributes mightily to a building’s image.”

The founder and chief technical officer of Lighting Alternatives, Inc. (Cherry Hill, NJ)

, Mr. Lewis represents the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IES) on

the Bureau’s board. He went on to say, “[A]ll too many existing buildings continue to

workhorse lighting technology that just won’t quit, seeming to justify

owners’ ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ attitude. The fact is that new systems could be

so effective they could pay for themselves in four years or less through energy savings

alone. And that doesn’t even begin to consider how better lighting can enhance a

building’s or enterprise’s image; how it can help everyone perform visual tasks faster

and with fewer errors; how lighting can affect morale, safety, security, sales, and –

yes – even our health. How it can add extraordinary curb appeal at night, as well as

attraction and sales enhancement that also improve the resale value of a building; even

the image, accessibility, and vitality of urban neighborhoods, where lighting is used to

revive commercial activity and in-city entertainment. What a message the Bureau has to

communicate, especially now that, from all appearances, people will have the financial

wherewithal to comfortably put the past now ending behind them.”

Established in 1976, the National Lighting Bureau is an independent, IRS-recognized

not-for-profit, educational foundation that has served as a trusted lighting-information

source since 1976. The Bureau is supported by the generous funding of its sponsors;

professional societies, trade associations, manufacturers, and agencies of the U.S.

government, including, among others:

enLIGHTen America;

GE Lighting;

Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IES);

Lighting Alternatives, Inc.;

Lighting Controls Association;

Lutron Electronics Company, Inc.;

(National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA);

National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA);


Philips Lighting; and

U.S. General Services Administration.
