ASSIST recommends...Recommendations for Evaluating Street and Roadway Luminaires

Published April 2011

This volume of ASSIST recommends describes a calculation method for determining the luminaire system application efficacy (LSAE) of street and roadway luminaires. This method is an extension of ASSIST’s recommended method for parking lot luminaires and shows how LSAE can be adapted to requirements typical of street and roadway lighting applications, so that luminaires of different source technologies can be compared on the same basis.
