High-Benefit Lighting Awards open for entries

National Lighting Bureau is accepting entries for cases of new installations or retrofits of lighting systems that had bottom-line benefits.

04/15/2011


The National Lighting Bureau’s 32nd annual High-Benefit Lighting Awards Program is under way. This program is open to virtually anyone associated with a high-benefit lighting installation: owners, designers, facility or property managers, contractors, manufacturer’s representatives, utility employees, and users, among others. An entry should document how modification of an existing lighting system or installation of a new one improved productivity, increased retail sales, or achieved any other bottom-line benefits of high-benefit lighting.

The National Lighting Bureau coined the term high-benefit lighting to connote “function-focused” electric-illumination systems that are designed to fulfill the specific purposes for which they will be used, especially to maximize bottom-line returns for those who own, manage and/or rely on the lighting.

For example, high-benefit lighting installed in workspaces can help people work faster, because it comprises electric illumination designed for the specific space, tasks, and people involved. Outdoor high-benefit lighting can help prevent accidents of all types, such as vehicle-vehicle and slip-and-trip accidents. In retail situations, better lighting can help improve customer attraction and stimulate purchasing.

According to National Lighting Bureau Chair Howard P. Lewis, the High-Benefit Lighting Awards Program is “intentionally easy to enter.”

“We want to encourage anyone associated with a lighting system upgrade or installation to submit a case history chronicling how high-benefit lighting contributed to the bottom line,” Lewis said.

For consideration in the 2011 High-Benefit Lighting Awards Program, an entry must be received by the National Lighting Bureau no later than October 31, 2011. All persons who enter the High-Benefit Lighting Awards Program receive a hand-inscribed certificate of participation. If Bureau staff develops an entry into a case history, the person submitting the information will serve as the bylined author of an article published in a prominent trade or professional journal.
