  Title Energy and user acceptability benefits of improved illuminance uniformity in parking lot illumination Type Journal Article
  Year 2015 Publication Lighting Research and Technology Abbreviated Journal Lighting Res. & Tech.

  Keywords Lighting; parking lots; uniformity; light distribution; illuminance; LED  
  Abstract This study set out to understand the benefits of improved illuminance uniformity in parking lots in terms of user perception and acceptability, as well as energy use, and to demonstrate that light-emitting diodes (LEDs) can achieve uniform distributions more efficiently than traditional light sources. The results from a field evaluation showed that more uniform illuminance distributions are favourably perceived by people in terms of goodness of illumination, ability to see around and at a distance, and perception of safety -- all of this at a much lower average horizontal illuminance. Thus, improving uniformity alone can translate into lower energy use and potential for less glare and light pollution. Optical modelling showed that LEDs have a much greater potential to efficiently produce uniform illuminance distributions than larger light sources such as high pressure sodium or metal halide.
