DOE Publishes GATEWAY Report on Pedestrian Friendly Outdoor Lighting

Recognizing that pedestrian lighting has different criteria for success than street and area lighting, GATEWAY followed two pedestrian-scale lighting projects that required multiple mockups – one at Stanford University in California and the other at Chautauqua Institution in upstate New York – to gain insight into what those criteria might be, how they differ from street and area lighting applications, and how solid-state lighting can be better applied in pedestrian applications. The report presents the results of surveys and observations from residents and pedestrians, feedback from facility design and engineering professionals, thoughts and observations from lighting designers, and input from researchers and scientists.
