AbstractThe Lighting Sub-program at the National Research Council of Canada Institute for Research in Construction (NRC-IRC) has examined the effects of office lighting on occupants? perception, performance, and satisfaction and on energy-efficiency for over 30 years. The promise of LED technology brings together these two issues. Market acceptance of the new technology will require that it be trusted as healthful and safe, and the initial cost premium will mean that the new systems need to offer features that users value, if LEDs are to displace the incumbent fluorescent technology. NRC-IRC began in 2008 to investigate LED technologies with two overlapping activities: the development of new ideas for office lighting with LEDs, and laboratory experiments addressing how people would use and respond to the colour-tuning capabilities of solid-state lighting systems. This article gives a sample of the activities in this project.
