  Title Use of light-emitting diode (LED) lamps in combination with metal halide (MH) lamps reduce fuel consumption in the Vietnamese purse seine fishery Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication Aquaculture and Fisheries Abbreviated Journal Aquaculture and Fisheries  
  Volume (up) in press Issue Pages in press  
  Keywords Economics; Animals; Lighting  
  Abstract The use of high-power lights during night-time purse seining is common in Vietnam. Typically, metal halide (MH) lamps are used in the commercial fishery to attract fish, however these lights require more energy, have a shorter lifespan, and lower chromatic performance than light emitting diode (LED) lamps. This study examined catch efficiency and fuel consumption when using LED lamps in combination with reduced numbers of MH lamps (10.24 kW), compared to conventional lighting (28.6 kW), used during purse seining off the coast of Ninh Thuan province, Vietnam. The economic performance associated with using LED lamps in this fishery was also assessed. We found no significant differences in catch rates between the different light treatments, however fuel consumption was significantly reduced. Fuel consumption per nightly trip using LED with MH lamps was 70.8 l (11.1 l/h) compared to114 l (17.45 l/hr) using MH lamps alone, an estimated 37.9% reduction in fuel consumption. An investment in LED lamps by a fishing enterprise will require additional initial costs, however our analysis revealed the financial break-event point can be reached after approximately 101 nightly trips when the fuel price is at the 2015 level of USD $0.74 per l. Fishing enterprises can increase their profitability, and reduce CO2 emissions, by using LED lamps in the Vietnamese purse seine fishery.

  Title Sustainable Potentials and Limitations of Using Media Façades in Egypt Type Journal Article
  Year Publication Ierek Press Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume (up) Issue Pages 99 - 110  
  Keywords Lighting  
  Abstract Media Façade is expressed in many cities by providing new attractive city images. The term ‘Media Façade’ is a façade that is functionally and aesthetically specific and thus it represents the integration of architecture, technology. This integration is applied to represent new form of modern art and communication (Haeusler et al., 2012). Implementing new technology such as ” Media Façade ”following the purpose of fashion trend or adding new stylistic feature without being well studied will cause a massive impact on architecture.

This technology ” Media Façade ” started to be used in Egypt in various buildings with different functions. This paper will firstly illustrate what is Media Façade then state the social, cultural and environmental impacts of these techniques by analyzing local examples using SWOT analysis.

  Title Direct measurement of the contribution of street lighting to satellite observations of nighttime light emissions from urban areas Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication Lighting Research & Technology Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume (up) in press Issue Pages  
  Keywords Remote Sensing; Lighting; Energy  
  Abstract Nighttime light emissions are increasing in most countries worldwide, but which types of lighting are responsible for the increase remains unknown. Also unknown is what fraction of outdoor light emissions and associated energy use are due to public light sources (i.e. streetlights) or various types of private light sources (e.g. advertising). Here we show that it is possible to measure the contribution of street lighting to nighttime satellite imagery using ‘smart city’ lighting infrastructure. The city of Tucson, USA, intentionally altered its streetlight output over 10 days, and we examined the change in emissions observed by satellite. We find that streetlights operated by the city are responsible for only 13% of the total radiance (in the 500–900 nm band) observed from Tucson from space after midnight (95% confidence interval 10–16%). If Tucson did not dim their streetlights after midnight, the contribution would be 18% (95% confidence interval 15–23%). When streetlights operated by other actors are included, the best estimates rise to 16% and 21%, respectively. Existing energy and lighting policy related to the sustainability of outdoor light use has mainly focused on street lighting. These results suggest an urgent need for consideration of other types of light sources in outdoor lighting policy.

  Title Energy Efficiency Lighting – Romania Type Journal Article
  Year 2015 Publication Romanian Journal of Building Services Abbreviated Journal Romanian J. of Building Services  
  Volume (up) 1 Issue 3 Pages 1-7  
  Keywords Energy; Romania; architecture; sustainability; sustainable lighting  
  Abstract The paper presents the Romanian experience, which is unique in promoting green

buildings and the impact for lighting. Without prior experience, situation has changed with the new Romanian Green Building Council, founded in 2008, which started with courses on sustainability (including 8 hours course on lighting), with green building contest and ending with a European web-platform Construction21.eu. A major breakthrough was a 2012 Cluj-Napoca city council decision that a certified green building should receive a 50% local tax reduction.

Since then all new buildings are LEED or BREEAM certified and lighting was one of the parts were buildings received a lot of points or credits. The sustainable lighting approach is the future oriented solution. It includes all the aspects not

only technical or energy efficient ones and for this we need to rethink lighting from a broader perspective.

  Title Factors Affecting Sign Visibility, Conspicuity, and Legibility: Review and Annotated Bibliography Type Journal Article
  Year 2017 Publication Interdisciplinary Journal of Signage and Wayfinding Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume (up) 1 Issue 2 Pages 2-25  
  Keywords Lighting  
  Abstract This paper summarizes published research studies, technical reports and codes and standards related to the visibility (i.e., conspicuity and legibility) of signage. In the summary that follows, publications are grouped and discussed according to several different topics. First, the typographic and symbolic characteristics of signs and the information they carry are described (e.g., letter size, font selection, etc.); second, photometric, colorimetric and temporal properties of signs as they affect visibility; finally, environmental considerations (e.g., daytime versus nighttime viewing, whether a sign is located in a rural or urban area, etc.) as they influence sign design are reviewed. Annotated summaries of each publication in the literature review are included at the end of this paper.
