With lighting now recognised as having a major role to play in realising Ireland’s Net Zero objective, Building Services Engineering recently caught up with Gavin Edwards, newly-elected Chair of Lighting Association Ireland (LAI), to examine the contribution lighting can make by way of energy savings, sustainability, circularity and wellbeing.
These, in fact, are the core issues which will underpin Gavin’s tenure over the coming two years. They also reflect the Association’s pivotal platforms established under previous Chairs, Gearóid McKenna, Paul O’Connor and Gabriel Byrne. Gavin has 30 years experience in lighting and is currently Sales Manager, Fagerhult Ireland. He is one of the LAI founding members and has already played a significant supporting role in its development to date.
