Abstract

Ineffective policies, missing technical information, large volumes of inappropriate luminaires, malpractice and several such reasons act as a hinderance for the adoption of LEDs in road lighting design despite being the most efficient sources of light. In national roads, the decision makers are sometimes confused by the low efficacy values of the luminaires. The tools for lighting simulation and projects in street lights require several energy performance indicators as described in EN13201-5 which is a novel system. This paper presents an optimal evaluation technique that involves the environmental criteria and can be implemented in the future energy policy. Evaluation of lighting tender and lighting designs is performed using a decision tool while analysing the significance of these factors. The corresponding offers and their ranking is evaluated by the decision tool. Several environmental benefits as well as improved energy saving can be achieved on implementation of this system. Simulation results shows reduced emission of CO2 and 75% energy saving using the best solution
