Smart Sustainable Lighting Network (SSLNet)

Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs), unlike conventional lighting offer direct electrical to light conversion and hence the highest possible efficiency. LEDs are one of the most rapidly emerging technology markets. With ever increasing awareness on energy conservation, concurrent with rapid scientific developments, LED technology is currently an exploding sector. The Impact Centre (IMC) at University of Toronto has started a Smart Sustainable Lighting Network (SSLNet) to catalyze Canadian adoption of LEDs and other sustainable lighting technologies.

The network is be devoted to the advancement of Smart Sustainable Lighting in Canada by bringing together researchers, industries, end-users and agencies, and foster constant dialogues, knowledge sharing and facilitate collaborative projects between its members.
