Keynote: Where real value lives in lighting 
-
Lighting projects shouldn’t end at commissioning. Our keynote speaker challenges lighting manufacturers to change their business mindset from a supply to a service model, because that’s where true value will be for top-end clients in the coming years.

Waste luminaires: How the regs will change
-
THe WEEE Regulations, Product Regulation, and Producer Responsibility Team at Defra will look at how the WEEE Regulations may be changed to prioritise reuse, support end user B2B collection and recycling and eco-modulate fees of products such as household luminaires.

Remanufacturing: Five things I wish I’d known
-
A leading pioneer in sustainability shares his hard-won insights from several years in the lighting remanufacturing sector.

How to design sustainable luminaires with great TM66 metrics
-
Our speaker explores the keyways to create light fittings with strong circular economy credentials and high TM66 ratings.

Re-use – How to make it work in the real world
-
Nigel Harvey of Recolight outlines the infrastructure needed to enable the widespread re-use of light fittings. What are the commercial, regulatory, and practical issues in creating a market in refurbished luminaires?

Bioplastics in lighting
-
Our speaker discusses PLA and other bioplastics and explores their properties and their potential role in the luminaires of the future.

Sustainable materials for next generation luminaires
-
Our speaker explores developments in sustainable materials for luminaire housings, optics, and heatsinking. Which innovations will become standard in the future?

3D print to order – a tech whose time has come
-
3D printing has advanced enormously since its introduction into industry over the last decade. What are its current capabilities? And how can it help luminaire manufacturers?

Panel discussion: The specifier’s’ role in sustainable lighting
-
How can lighting designers, consulting engineers and architects help their clients achieve sustainability in their buildings? In this forum, specifiers debate the way forward.

A product’s not circular unless the project is too
-
Our speaker shares how his practice is moving towards a circular model and explains how this direction of travel will affect manufacturers and the wider supply chain.

Embodied carbon – the right metric for lighting?
-
Are EPDs a useful metric for lighting specification? Our speaker explores TM65, EPDs and the measurement of embodied carbon in lighting products.

Understanding Life cycle assessments
-
How to conduct a cradle-to-grave life cycle assessment and life cycle impact assessment for a luminaire though all its life cycle stages - and what it means for the specification.

Panel discussion: Does TM66 mean the end of value engineering?
-
How can light fittings with strong circular economy principles maintain their spec throughout the life of a project install? Where will the margins be in the future? Our panel of specifiers and manufacturers thrashes out the issues.
