GREENVILLE, S.C., Aug. 22, 2022

Six lighting solutions from Current™ were featured in the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) Progress Report Committee’s annual report, which was released and presented on Aug. 19 at the 2022 IES Annual Conference. The report is an important reference guide for those who spec new builds and retrofit projects. 

“We’re proud of the teams that helped us earn this level of recognition,” says Chip Taylor, Chief Commercial Officer. “Each of the six qualifying products are right in line with the Current mission to connect customers to the next generation of smart and sustainable world-class lighting solutions that create safer, efficient, inspiring environments.” 

The six solutions listed below illustrate a variety of lighting scenarios, such as addressing safety systems for commercial and industrial environments; delivering stylish and contemporary office lighting; and forward-thinking and intuitive controls.

GE Hazardous Location LED Replacement Lamps offer 2.5 times the life of a standard HID while standing up to the rugged environments of places such as drilling rigs, petrochemical facilities, food and beverage facilities, and other heavy-industry areas.

In addition to the recognition and inclusion in the IES Annual Report, the two Forum products will be demonstrated on stage at the IES Conference.

“Knowing how valuable the IES report is to those who spec products for their projects makes it an especially rewarding achievement,” adds Taylor. “We’re excited to put these products on full display at the IES Annual Conference.”
