This authoritative and timely document has been developed by a working group of technical experts and end-users responsible for the management, specification and procurement of the exterior lighting systems market.

The exterior lighting systems market is undergoing rapid change as new disruptive technologies (including LED lighting and intelligent lighting controls) come on to the market at the same time as financial and operational constraints are coming into force that promote energy and cost savings.

With a wide range of technologies available, lighting managers from both the public and private sectors face a difficult task in driving forwards with the appropriate specification, suitable selection and effective implementation of lighting systems that balance quality and cost requirements against the expectations of their constituents and customers.

The aim of this guide is to support informed customers / users of exterior lighting systems, providing a basis for evaluation of technical issues and decision-making on technology adoption in order to achieve functional, budgetary and compliance requirements. The key applications targeted by the document are public spaces such as outdoor work areas, road, footway and cycle path lighting, security, architectural and amenity lighting, where new technologies offer improvements in energy efficiency, product lifetime and adaptive lighting.

This document provides recommendations for decision making and appropriate approaches to the specification and procurement of energy efficient exterior lighting systems, including:

  • User-friendly introductory sections to support informed customer decisions for quality lighting schemes and specification of compliant systems.
  • Good practice recommendations for procurement, implementation and management of exterior lighting systems.
  • An online Good Practice Specification Template for energy efficient exterior lighting systems.

Good Practice Specification Template

The Good Practice Specification Template (Annex A of this Guide) provides a basis for specification of exterior lighting systems and the evaluation of supplier offers for suitable solutions. It is designed to be used to set out and assess criteria so that alternative offers and lighting solutions can be assessed on a like-for-like basis.

The Good Practice Specification Template is available to download as an Excel spreadsheet.
