The Lighting Controls Association (LCA) recently announced that it entered into a five-year agreement with the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) to sponsor a new Control Innovation Award as part of the IES’s prestigious Illumination Awards. Twenty projects were submitted in the Award’s first year. IES intends to make a formal announcement in August. However, we are pleased to be able to announce that seven projects were recognized with an IES Illumination Award of Merit, and one of these is being recognized with a higher award. Stay tuned, as further announcements will follow later in the summer.
