Eric Berkey has been a lighting designer with Hinkley’s Lighting in Phoenix Arizona for the past 20 years. With an architectural degree, Eric continues to explore all decorative and architectural lighting forms, and is a specialist in emerging lighting technologies.He will talk about how the EISA (Energy and Independence Security Act) has effected the ways we now look at lighting sources. This much misunderstood congressional act compelled manufacturers to develop new products to comply, but has also fostered new thinking on the common incandescent light source that we have not seen since its invention over 100 years ago. With so many new forms of lighting now emerging, how should the consumer continue move forward in thoughtful and sustainable ways.
