42 LIGHTING MAGAZINE | October/November 2014 THE ILY2015 CONSORTIUM WELCOMES THE IALD AS PATRON SPONSOR The International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies (IYL 2015) consortium is delighted to welcome into its partnership the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) as a Patron sponsor, and to include as a major focus of the year’s activities Light in the Built Environment. The theme of “Light in the Built Environment” addresses both indoor and outdoor environments. The goals of good lighting are to put light where it is needed, when it is needed, while simultaneously minimising energy use and light pollution. Practitioners of many disciplines, from engineering to architecture, deal with light in the built environment. Lighting designers specialise in applying insights from both science and art to optimise lighting installations, improving human comfort and productivity while also highlighting architectural impact. IALD is the only global organization of independent lighting designers, all of whom are recognised as leaders in the field. The IALD will celebrate IYL 2015 throughout the year within its existing worldwide program of activities, such as its annual portfolio of Enlighten conferences, and by integrating with the other activities planned by UNESCO and the IYL community. IALD will kick-off its involvement in IYL2015 through participation in the Opening Ceremony of IYL2015 in January 2015, where an IALD speaker will highlight the importance of these themes in a special symposium on lighting challenges for the future. 2014 11, 18, 25 October Enlightenment: The Basics of Efficient Lighting enlightenment.iesanz.org/ MELBOURNE, VICTORIA 16-18 October IALD Enlighten Americas 2014 www.iald.org/about/events/IALDEnlightenAmericas2014. asp SAN DIEGO, USA 17 October IESANZ NSW Annual Awards Dinner www.iesanz.org SYDNEY 17- 18 October PLD-C Istanbul - mini-convention www.istanbul.pld-c.com ISTANBUL, TURKEY 21 - 24 October 2014 AIC Interim Meeting, www.aic2014.org OAXACA CITY, MEXICO 27-30 October Hong Kong International Lighting Fair (Autumn Edition) 2014 www.chinaexhibition.com/Official_Site/11-5166-Hong_Kong_ International_Lighting_Fair_(Autumn_Edition)_2014.html HONG KONG, SAR 9-11 November IALD Enlighten Europe 2014 www.iald.org/about/events/IALDEnlightenEurope2014.asp BERLIN, GERMANY 10-11 November Experiencing Light 2014 www.experiencinglight.nl EINDHOVEN, NETHERLANDS 11, 18, 20 November Enlightenment: The Basics of Efficient Lighting enlightenment.iesanz.org/ PERTH, WA Events Calendar IES UPDATES+POSTS TOWARDS MORE SUSTAINABLE STREET LIGHTING At the recent Australian Sustainable Infrastructure Awards organised by the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australasia (IPWEA), the IPWEA launched the IPWEA Practice Note Towards More Sustainable Street Lighting which also received a Highly Commended Award. The authors of the Practice Note were Graham Mawer of Next Energy and Godfrey Bridger and Bryan King from Strategic Lighting Partners. It is intended as a high-level guide on issues for senior council and Road Controlling Authority managers and those in governance roles in Australian street lighting. It is a strategic review of issues in the analogue-to-digital transformation in street lighting and covers the “what to do”, rather than the “how to do it”. There is much content on LED technology and the energy performance opportunities. This IPWEA eBook is available as a free down load from www.ipwea.org/PN11 and is being circulated by IPWEA to all local councils in Australia. Hard copies also available for purchase at $55 including P&H (see www.ipwea.org/practicenotes). PHILIPS APPOINTS A NEW LEADER FOR AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND LIGHTING COUNCIL AUSTRALIA’S CEO APPOINTED SECRETARY GENERAL OF GLOBAL LIGHTING ASSOCIATION Lighting Council Australia’s CEO, Bryan Douglas, has been appointed Secretary General of the Global Lighting Association (GLA), a grouping of peak national and regional lighting associations representing over 5,000 lighting manufacturers and US$50 billion annual sales. The position is based in Canberra and Mr Douglas will undertake the role in addition to his current position as CEO of Lighting Council Australia (LCA), whose Chairman, Russell Loane OAM, said that the appointment by the Board of the GLA is a reflection of the high regard held for both Mr Douglas and the LCA which was a foundation member of the predecessor organisation to the GLA. Mr Douglas has chaired the Association’s Environment Committee since its inception. His appointment commenced on 1 September 2014. Mr Douglas said that the appointment will provide Lighting Council Australia with special insights at a time of significant change in the global lighting industry. “With the advent of large scale ledification and digitalisation, and the associated profound growth in manufacturing, it is an exciting time to assume the role of Secretary General of the Global Lighting Association”, he said. Jan Denneman, President of the GLA stated, “We are very pleased to welcome Bryan in this capacity. He has been an active and influential member of the GLA and understands the transition the industry is in. We look forward to his continued participation, insight, and leadership.” Philips announced the appointment of Kevin Barrow as both Country Manager for Philips Australia and New Zealand, and General Manager for Philips Healthcare for Australia and New Zealand, effective 22 August 2014, leading a team of more than 700 employees.
