WELCOME TO SSLNET
The Impact Centre at the University of Toronto started the SSLNet to catalyze Canadian adoption of new Smart Sustainable Lighting (SSL) technology. The network is devoted to the advancement of Smart Sustainable Lighting in Canada, bringing together researchers, industries, end-users and agencies, to foster constant dialogues, knowledge sharing and facilitate collaborative projects between its members.
Presentations posted for U.S. DOE SSL Technology Development Workshop and Connected Lighting Systems Meeting
More than 230 attendees participated in the tenth annual DOE Solid-State Lighting Technology Development Workshop, held November 17–18 in Portland, OR, to learn the latest on today’s toughest LED lighting issues and to find out what’s next on the horizon. From November 16 to 18, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) hosted the tenth annual […]
Speaking at the COP21 climate summit, Peter Agnefjäll, President and CEO, IKEA Group reaffirmed its commitment to renewable energy and sustainable products. In September, IKEA completed the conversion of its entire lighting range to LED and IKEA was the first major retailer in Canada to sell only energy efficient LED light bulbs. Over the next […]
A recent CBC article highlights how the City of Calgary’s transition to LED lighting can be seen from space. Two pictures from the International Space Station (ISS), one taken by Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield in 2013 and another taken recently by American astronaut Scott Kelly, clearly shows how the streetlight colour has changed in neighbourhoods […]
The U.S. Department of Energy’s GATEWAY program has released a report describing four exterior SSL projects that have been completed at Princeton University, which has long recognized SSL’s potential benefits. These projects show how the school’s approach to solid-state lighting has evolved as its knowledge has broadened and as the products available have improved in […]
The U.S. Department of Energy’s GATEWAY program has released a report on a trial installation of LED apron lighting at Philadelphia International Airport (PHL). In addition to reducing energy, PHL also hopes to reduce required maintenance, reduce light pollution, and increase safety with an improved lighting system. To minimize the complexity and cost of installing […]
Very high brightness quantum dot light-emitting devices via enhanced energy transfer from a phosphorescent sensitizer
Quantum dot light-emitting devices (QDLEDs) have attracted significant attention recently for utilization in flat panel displays. They are capable of producing purer and easily tunable colours, hence, a better image quality. However, when compared to other electroluminescent devices (such as inorganic and organic LEDs), QDLEDs exhibit very low efficiency. The low efficiency is caused in […]
Founded by graduates of the University of Toronto, Nanoleaf creates high efficiency light bulbs using the latest LED technology. The company has been awarded numerous awards, including the SEAD Global Efficiency Medal and the reddot design award. Now, Nanoleaf is launching a new product that allows the user to control home lighting with a smartphone […]
