‘’Dutch society invests more money, time,

energy, and creativity in lighting their
cheese and meats (with LED) than they do
their cultural heritage’’, states Scott
Geffert during our interview.

Introduction

Tom Dalton, Vice President sales and marketing – Nuventix, USA, left this message
on a LinkedIn website called: Innovation in Light:

‘There are a lot of reasons why companies are moving to LED, big time: maintenance
cost alone (…)add to that energy savings, lack of hazardous waste chemicals (as are
found in CFL) and in many countries they're simply pulling certain bulbs off the market
(primarily incandescent). Finally, there are a number of customers that simply want
quality light (and when people went from incandescent to CFL they certainly sacrificed

that).’ 30

Since the beginning of 2011 more and more museums are slowly investing in LEDs for
exhibition purposes. For the past four- five years museums where far more hesitant.
Due to new technology and the cumulating awareness of LEDs benefits on
environmental and health issues LEDs are being used in museums. What led these
museums to make such a sudden change?

The development of LED implementation based on the information in chapter 2 will
know be described at a more detailed level in this chapter.
