The recent lecture titled, LEDs: a universal panacea to achieving good lighting with energy efficiency? proved extremely successful with over 80 people in attendance at Engineers Ireland in Dublin 4.
This lighting CPD event was jointly organised by CIBSE Ireland, Society of Light and Lighting (SLL), Engineers Ireland, Institute of Lighting Professionals and the Institute of Engineering and Technology.
The two principal speakers – Iain McCrae and Mike Simpson – delivered enlightening papers regarding the appropriate applications and potential benefits/pitfalls of LED technology in lighting.
Thereafter, a stimulating debate evolved with Iain, Mike and members of the audience exchanging interesting, and sometimes contentious, views.
