Light and building trade fair to highlight efficient LED products

April 3, 2012

Gaash Lighting will showcase an innovative series of LED fixtures designed to generate significant energy savings, high efficiency and flexibility at the upcoming Light+Building 2012 trade fair in Frankfurt, Germany.

According to a release from the company, Gaash will present innovative LED lighting solutions at its stand in Hall 4.2, where a series of products that demonstrate significant energy saving potential will be displayed.

A range of companies will showcase products that help to improve the efficiency of buildings, as businesses in Europe will be able to see the potential for the sector. Not only will energy savings be recorded for structures that use LED lights, but long-term operating costs are significantly reduced, according to the release.

"By participating in Light+Building, one of the world's largest trade fairs for lighting and building technology, Gaash has an excellent opportunity to demonstrate its proven abilities in offering high quality lighting products that are efficient, decorative and flexible," said Asaf Cikman, Gaash Lighting's general manager. "European OEMs, distributors, wholesalers, agents and private label manufacturers are welcome to visit us to explore future partnerships."

This type of private sector push for energy efficiency has been coupled with government efforts in Europe, and this model has been used by the U.S. as a way to reduce the 40 percent total energy consumption that commercial buildings are currently responsible for.

The U.S. Department of Energy designated an innovation HUB specifically to address this issue. The Greater Philadelphia Innovation Cluster for Energy Efficient Buildings (GPIC) is an effort that is headquartered at the Philadelphia Navy Yard and relies on the brightest minds from academia, energy development companies, the government and the private sector to advance the industry.

The GPIC recently became a Green Lease Library partner, as it is looking to stimulate growth in the industry through aligning the financial and energy incentives of both building owners and tenants.

According to the GPIC's HUBlog, green leases are an important tool in promoting energy efficient buildings, as they help to incentivize change for all parties, so that building owners and companies that lease space are able to see significant savings.

The blog noted that a number of stakeholders, including the GPIC, have joined together in order to create the library, which helps to consolidate green lease resources into a single, easily accessible site.
