Lightscene:Blue Light and Colour Temperature took place on Thursday 5 October 2017 from 10:00 until 16:00 at Northampton Saints Rugby Ground, Franklin’s Gardens, Weedon Road, Northampton, NN5 5BG.

Lightscene is focusing on blue light and colour temperature within the world of LED lighting, this event hopes to open up discussion and debate on this topical issue. The ILP will be providing a range of CPD sessions hoping to cover this diverse subject including interactive elements so everyone can have their say and be involved in the discussion.


Perhaps you have innovative products which tackle this difficult subject or have your own views on technological changes required to overcome the current perceived problems. Either way, this event is a great opportunity to promote to, and engage with, a wider audience of lighting professionals.

We are pleased to announce the following CPD sessions for Lightscene:

11:00 - Nathan French, ASD Lighting Specifying LED luminaires, things you all know. Don’t we? (*PREMIER CORPORATE MEMBER CPD SESSION*)

With large scale capital investment LED programmes being common place in the UK, this paper looks at things all specifiers know!!!

Taking it back to basics from the foundations of reducing carbon emissions, through to how to maximise the life of the LED from manufacture through to installation and driver changes.

Absolute photometry, and luminaire design features and why they are important when selecting lighting solutions.

12:00 - Alan Grant, DW Windsor Specifying LEDs - the rewards and risks (*A NEW PAPER*)

A paper that looks at current research regarding correlated colour temperature, the effects on our circadian rhythm and how to mitigate for the perceived (blue light) risks.

14:00 - Ryan Carroll, Designs for Lighting Colour temperature – what are the issues? You decide!

Join in an interactive session to discuss the hot topic of colour temperature in LED street lighting, featuring live examples of the available options currently on the market. The team will discuss the issues in choosing between cool, neutral and warm white colour temperature and will be inviting you as the audience to tell them your preference with a live poll on screen. During the presentation, they will provide a general overview of the science behind colour temperature and how we see light. They will then begin the interaction with the use of sources with differing colour temperature and begin the live audience question feedback. Bring your smartphone to use the free interaction app!

15:00 - Neil Haigh, Blueside Photonics Ltd - Blue light danger 'edges'?

Where do the 'danger edges' lie for blue light? Neil will explore blue light hazard for the lighting industry.

He will look at:

  • worker safety making, testing designing LED fittings
  • servicing and maintenance issues
  • speciality; lighting with enhanced violet and blue light output deployed in the application
