MARCH LUNCHEON:BRUCE KINZEY DISCUSSEd BLUE SPECTRUM  LIGHTING'S IMPACT

The Nightime Blues in Context

Natural systems are particularly sensitive to wavelengths in the blue portion of the spectrum, and as a result concerns are being increasingly raised about the potential for negative effects of blue wavelengths emitted by artificial light sources.

Our distinguished speaker, Bruce Kinzey, put the controversies in context, with an up to date discussion of the latest research about this topic.

Our Speaker: Bruce Kinzey has worked in the energy efficiency area for nearly 30 years as a research engineer at PNNL.  He joined DOE’s Solid-State Lighting team in 2006, originally managing the GATEWAY technology demonstration program. In 2014 he became Director of the DOE Municipal Solid-State Street Lighting Consortium and the primary technical support for the Outdoor Lighting Accelerator, a White House Challenge initiative designed to help overcome implementation barriers to high performance street and area lighting. 

Here is the handout from the presentation.
