Uniform Parking Lot Lighting Enhances Security and Energy Savings


Improving the uniformity of lighting in parking lots can increase the sense of safety and security and can provide up to 75 percent greater energy savings by lowering total light levels, according to a new study from the Lighting Research Center. The study, Energy and User Acceptability Benefits from Improved Illuminance Uniformity of Parking Lot Illumination,” describes a field demonstration, human factors study, and systems analysis that tested the relationship between illuminance, uniformity, and user acceptance in parking lots, and it calculated the advantage that LED luminaires offer at producing more uniform beam patterns compared with high-intensity discharge luminaires.
