On 25 January 2012, Partners for Innovation organized two workshops on sustainable lighting in Alkmaar. A total of 50 people participated in both workshops.
The workshop for lighting professionals was very well attended. The high participation and the lively discussions underline that energy efficient lighting has the future. There is still work to do though, because the retailers were significantly less numerous. However, the shop owners that did participate were all very excited about the possibilities of sustainable lighting and are planning to take serious measures in the near future.
