Philips Lighting, Somerset, N.J., continues to expand the services of its Lighting Application Center, this time unveiling its Industrial Theater where facilities managers can learn how to reduce costs with more creative forms of lighting. Based on the idea that “each light socket…is a unique opportunity to…have a positive impact on the environment,” the 3,000-sq-ft interactive theater hosts workshops that preach the benefits of energy-efficient lighting.

The facility combines two sets of luminaire drums that house a variety of light sources with several interactive presentations and workstations to simulate different lighting challenges and allow participants to work out solutions.
