Lighting Industrial Facilities – RP7


Providing a successful lighting design for a modern industrial facility is a complex task and in common with other lighting applications, the LED revolution is having a major impact. However, there is a lack of readily available advice for industrial facilities wishing to update their lighting technology to deal with the wide variety of applications found in an industrial environment. This session will discuss some of the basic issues relevant to industrial lighting from the recently issued ANSI/IES RP-7-17 Recommended Practice for Lighting of Industrial Facilities, with emphasis on the efficient replacement of legacy lighting by the appropriate LED system. This includes the establishment of a suitable maintenance program to ensure that issues such as lumen degradation, particularly dirt depreciation, lifetime issues, and lamp replacement scenarios are addressed in a timely manner. The session will end with a brief discussion of some aspects of lighting health and safety in an industrial environment.

Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).

Date of Webinar: 2/14/2019 12:00 PM Eastern Time

Graeme Lister is Chair of the IES Industrial Lighting Committee. He has 30 years experience in the lighting industry, including positions in research, development, and management. He is now a lighting consultant based in the Boston area and his current project is to manage the replacement of street lighting with LEDs in the City of Lynn, MA.  Much of his career was spent in the technology, research and development of discharge lighting systems as a key scientist and successful team leader of technically complex and multidisciplinary research projects at Thorn Lighting UK and Osram Sylvania and recently Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technical Officer, Ceravision Limited, UK. He has been an invited speaker at many national and international conferences and has written more than 100 published articles and papers.

Graeme has been active in the development and implementation of regulations and standards related to roadway, area and industrial lighting for many years, through membership of IES and ANSI committees.

He has a BSc and MSc in Physics from the University of Melbourne and a Ph.D. in Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from the Flinders University of South Australia.
