Significant innovation in linear fluorescent lighting is being spurred on by commercial building energy codes, sustainability initiatives, new legislation and regulations, customer demands and competition from other light sources, such as light-emitting diodes (LEDs). In short, fluorescent lighting is generally become more efficient, more controllable and longer life.

Check out this article I wrote for ELECTRICAL CONTRACTOR that provides an in-depth look at what’s new in linear fluorescent lamps and ballasts over the past 12-18 months, which describes general market trends, specific product trends, and resulting innovations, including a large number of examples of products. The article is based on a presentation Howard Wolfman and I gave at LIGHTFAIR this past year looking at what’s new in lamps and ballasts across all of the light source families.
