A recent report by Energy Management Solutions details the major design and specification concerns of roadway lighting and examines the potential for induction and light-emitting diode (LED) luminaires to save energy and money while providing high-quality lighting for motorists and pedestrians. The report includes a 10-step how-to manual for the appropriate selection of LED roadway luminaires and provides a comprehensive discussion of induction and LED roadway luminaire technologies.

This project was supported in part (or in whole) by a grant from the Minnesota Department of Commerce, Division of Energy Resources through the Conservation Applied Research and Development (CARD) program, which is funded by Minnesota ratepayers.
