Welcome to the Lighting Week 2019!

There is a strong interest in learning more about the Swedish Energy Agency's work with policy development, product testing, research financing, support for business development. The Swedish Energy Agency in turn need to keep up to date with the development from a wide range of actors to understand how the transformation of the energy system can be carried out.

Since 2011, the Lighting Research Center (LRC) from Troy, New York, has visited the Swedish Energy Agency for a week of lighting seminars on an advanced level. The week has become very popular among the participants, and this year the week will be held between 9-13 December in Stockholm. This is a great opportunity for Swedish authorities, companies to access the latest developments in the rapidly expanding lighting field.

Lunch and coffee breaks are included! Seats are limited. The themes for this year are:

Mon, Dec 9, Energy System Challenges - Watt is going on (registration opens at 09:00, presentations start at 10:00 and ends in the afternoon)

The reason for the theme on this day is that we have as lighting specialists learned over the years that it is also beneficial to understand the power grid challenges in order to contribute with solutions with the current challenges.
