Artificial lighting uses a significant amount of the energy produced for buildings but without it, many tasks would be impossible. Artificial lighting has allowed high-density buildings to be designed and cities, in the modern sense, to form. As engineers, we look for ways to reduce this energy consumption while also minimizing the negative impacts of energy saving on the human (and sometimes animal) experience. The new age of lighting technology also means there are increasing abilities to affect change in more than just the visual system.
