Key EU Sustainability & Circular Economy policies for lighting
by Elena Scaroni, Policy Director, LightingEurope
The sustainability requirements in the new EU ecodesign rules for lighting are a first indication of the potential impact of EU sustainability policies and laws on the design, manufacture and marketing of lighting products. LightingEurope is the industry’s voice in Brussels, we liaise with decision-makers to explain the particularities of lighting and to shape balanced rules that can be easily understood, applied and enforced. During the presentation, LightingEurope will give an overview of the sustainability policies that are currently being debated in the EU and how they impact lighting, and shortly summarise the circular economy mandatory requirements introduced by ecodesign that apply as of 1 September 2021.
How Zhaga addresses Sustainability & Circular Economy
by Reinhard Lecheler, Chair of Zhaga Steering Committee, Osram
* Introduction to Sustainability and Circular Economy and their meaning in the field of lighting
* The facets of luminaire serviceability
* The concept of “Circularity Lighting”
* Problems to be addressed and solutions offered by Zhaga
Vision on sustainable lighting design
by Emilio Hernandez, Chair of Green-Light Alliance
* Smart cities & buildings are intertwined with sustainability and opportunities for efficiency, but a luminaire can only be circular if the lighting project is too.
* We will touch on some key opportunities for smart luminaires and lighting design to evolve and adapt.together with circular economy principles in mind as well as highlighting different legislation and metrics on the circularity of a design being explored in our industry.

* Since joining PNNL Michael has worked on a wide-ranging number of lighting projects. Michael splits his time across a variety of programs including Building Energy Codes and Federal Appliance Standards; Commercial Building Integration, and Advanced Lighting / solid-state lighting. These programs provide Michael with a cross-cutting point of view where he can borrow and share across the programs. Michael has been involved in many field evaluations and demonstrations.
Programming luminaire components – Easy data management over the entire lifecycle (Zhaga Books 24 & 25)
by Jan de Graaf, Product Architect, Signify
* It is important that luminaire data can be easily configured and managed over the entire lifecycle of the luminaire to extend the useful life of luminaires and contribute in this way to a circular and so more sustainable economy.
* The problem is that currently a variety of methods for programming and data read-out are used and installers or maintenance persons need to manage all these methods with different tools.
* Zhaga offers a solution with NFC based programming at the OEM (Book24) and in the field (Book25) covering the entire luminaire lifecycle with interoperable maintenance tools enabling easy to service, configurable luminaires.
