High performance LED technology and electronics manufacturing have combined to revolutionize the lighting industry. Where once a lamp and a luminaire could be assembled in “anyone’s garage”, modern lighting manufacturing requires the experience and processes of high-yield electronics assembly and manufacturing. This presentation will focus on product development and issues in the lighting industry. An industry where new technologies, modes of thinking, and products need to be created to fulfill the promise of the light emitting diode as the platform for the lighting of today and tomorrow.


Mr. Adam ChaffeyAdam has been involved in the development of industry leading LED luminaires for street and roadway lighting applications since 2008. During his R&D experience at LED Roadway Lighting, he was primarily involved in the design of the LED optical systems as well as market approval and certification activities.

He is an active participant on the ANSI C136 Committee on Roadway and Area Lighting Equipment, and the ANSI C137 Committee on Lighting Systems. He is currently serving as Past-Chair of the Education Subcommittee for the annual IES Street and Area Lighting Conference. Adam is a licensed Professional Physicist (P.Phys). He holds an Honors B.Sc. in Astrophysics from Saint Mary’s University, an M.Sc. in Physics from Dalhousie, and has been awarded two patents for LED optical systems design. He is currently Manager of Technical Services, where he oversees a technical support team that operates in many areas of the diverse global lighting market.
