Based on a recent research project with SPFA and the National Electrical Manufacturer’s Association (NEMA), special enclosures for recessed luminaires may be a thing of the past. In December, NEMA published NEMA LE 7-2015 Recessed Luminaires Intended for Contact with Expanding Polyurethane Foam Insulation. NEMA developed this standard to define a subset of insulation contact (Type IC) luminaires that are appropriate for use with polyurethane sprayfoam. This standard also provides requirements and recommendations for Type IC recessed luminaires intended for installation in contact with low-density and medium-density polyurethane foam thermal insulation.

Most of us are aware that marketing greatly impacts the way consumers make decisions and ultimately make purchases or investments. Still, depending on the products or services you are attempting to market, the costs and complexity of executing a marketing campaign will vary depending on the product's marketability. Thus, if you are attempting to market energy efficiency as a package of services and products, then you need to focus on developing an in-depth marketing plan.
