SSLNet

SMART SUSTAINABLE LIGHTING NETWORK
The Smart Sustainable Lighting Network (SSLNet) is devoted to the advancement of sustainable lighting technologies in Canada. The Impact Centre launched the SSLNet in 2009 to catalyze the Canadian development and adoption of solid-state lighting technology. The SSLNet fosters constant dialogue, knowledge sharing, and collaborative projects between its members. With the advent of solid-state lighting technologies (e.g., LEDs), the industry is undergoing a rapid transformation. Solid-state lighting has become the fastest emerging technology in the $70 billion lighting market.

The migration to solid-state lighting is predicted to reduce lighting energy requirements by 40% in 2030.

These energy savings are equivalent to eliminating 24×1000 MW power plants and 180 million metric tonnes of CO2 per year.

The SSLNet is the Impact Centre’s first example of organically growing an industry cluster.  It has evolved from a single research contract into Canada’s leading network in the lighting sector.
