About the research
The main objective is to identify best practices and leading technologies for energy efficient street lighting. The proposed research will develop a synthesis of energy efficient street lighting practices. It will include a synthesis of existing best practices to reduce energy use by state and local transportation agencies. It will also summarize state of the art technology to improve the energy efficiency of street lighting. This project will supplement current working being completed for the Iowa Highway Research Board, which is evaluating existing street lighting guidelines and developing recommendations for street lighting practices in Iowa.
