On May 9-11th Capital Review Group was excited to participate in LIGHTFAIR International in Las Vegas. As the world’s largest annual architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference, LIGHTFAIR International blends continuing education courses with innovative products ranging from high-end design to cutting-edge technology.

CRG was one of the sponsors of the EnOcean-Alliance booth, where we were on hand to present our expertise in leveraging the tax benefits of §179D, which are available to building owners when building or retrofitting their properties with energy efficient products.  This was a timely topic, as many EnOcean-Alliance members were presenting products that may provide commercial building owners with ways to capitalize on the §179D benefits.  According to Graham Martin, Chairman of EnOcean-Alliance, “The innovative solutions EnOcean-Alliance members displayed this year are designed to reduce energy consumption as well as give users more control and flexibility in managing their lighting requirements, whether new construction or the retrofitting of older buildings for more efficient operations.”

We were impressed with how smoothly the conference ran and the impressive number of attendees, as well as the caliber of our fellow EnOcean-Alliance sponsors.  We applaud the EnOcean-Alliance for their work in developing and promoting self-powered wireless monitoring and control systems for sustainable buildings by formalizing the interoperable wireless standard.
