  • A government lighting specialist works within local, state or federal agencies to ensure that government lighting programs meet current lighting standards.
  • An environmental lighting advocate is employed in the field of energy efficiency, sustainability, and waste disposal to promote improved practices and maintain pressure on government agencies to adopt appropriate standards.
  • A corporate lighting specialist works for a property owner or manager to implement sound lighting practices, to ensure competent lighting designs have been supplied by architects and engineers, and to oversee lighting management companies.
