"There have been tremendous advances in energy-efficient lighting technologies, and we believe a conference on this topic will be invaluable to energy industry professionals," said Elliot Boardman, AESP's executive director.
The conference, which includes a tour of the Lighting Research Center, is designed for utility program designers, managers, implementers and evaluators. Energy service companies, consultants and suppliers will also find the information useful, as will building owners/managers and lighting companies.

NYSERDA is a public benefit corporation created in 1975 by the New York State Legislature. NYSERDA administers the New York Energy $mart(SM) program, which is designed to support certain public benefit programs during the transition to a more competitive electricity market. Some 2,700 projects in 40 programs are funded by a charge on the electricity transmitted and distributed by the State's investor-owned utilities. The New York Energy $mart(SM) program provides energy efficiency services, including those directed at the low-income sector, research and development, and environmental protection activities.
ENERGY STAR is a government-backed program helping businesses and individuals protect the environment through superior energy efficiency. Last year alone, Americans, with the help of ENERGY STAR, saved enough energy to power 20 million homes and avoid greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from 18 million cars - all while saving $8 billion.
