An article advocating for high color rendering in consumer lighting products and the policies that support their adoption is now available. The paper is a collaboration between CLTC the University of British Columbia and the National Research Council of Canada. The article focuses on the tradeoff between color rendering accuracy and lamp efficiency to show that high color rendering accuracy is appropriate and, contrary to a common misconception, does not intrinsically require greater electrical energy consumption. The article appears in the IES LEUKOS:
"High Color Rendering Can Enable Better Vision without Requiring More Power"
