When it comes to constructing lighting systems, there is often a considerable gap between what is known and what is actually put into practice. In view of energy-saving measures and the imminent climate change, it is imperative that this gap be filled.
This can be accomplished in two different ways: by drafting numerous white papers for the public sector, associations and industry, and by making consulting tools such as the Retrofit Adviser available on national and international Internet platforms, mostly free of charge. Likewise, newly-defined standards and regulations are intended to achieve the necessary level of acceptance and implementation among users, planners and decision-makers. Involvement in study projects, the organization of information events and participation in trade fairs also contribute to spreading information about the researched potentials in the lighting industry.
With our expertise in the field of lighting technology, we are also happy to support you in legal disputes. Our objective evaluation of lighting and solar radiation scenarios in urban environments can contribute to the clarification of legal disputes – for example in the case of glare caused by critical sunlight reflections in offices / at workplaces, or in the case of damage as a result of radiation concentrations, caused by concave curved glass façades -> Fryscraper Effect.
Another field of activity is our assistance in forensics in the reconstruction of light and illumination conditions at crime scenes.
