Acuity Brands Director to Present at June Department of Energy Solid-State Lighting Workshop
The presentation, "Rethinking Luminaire Manufacturing for SSL," will take place at 10:30 a.m., and features a number of industry panelists, including Hand. Panelists will address topics such as state-of-the-art manufacturing practices for LED luminaires and the special needs of OLEDs.
"With the growing demand of SSL, it is important manufacturers continue addressing how to increase product quality while reducing costs of LED and OLED technology," said Hand. "Achieving these goals are extremely important and can benefit not only manufacturers, but end-users, the government and our environment."
The DOE SSL Manufacturing R&D Initiative was created in 2009 to forge government-industry partnerships focused on a common goal: to reduce the cost and improve the quality of SSL products. A related goal is to foster a significant U.S. role for SSL manufacturing—creating jobs and promoting the nation's technology leadership in this field.

Since 2005, Hand has been involved in the research, conceptualization, development and commercialization of LED luminaires for Acuity Brands. He has presented at numerous DOE SSL workshops in the past including, most recently, at the marketing introduction workshop in Seattle, Wash.
