32 2013



Right now, the U.S. (and the global community) are undergoing a lighting revolution. This includes the nation’s 26.5 million streetlights that are an average age of 25 years old and, like the rest of the nation’s aging infrastructure, have passed their useful life. At the same time, technology in the lighting industry continues to advance at a rapid pace. It is difficult to keep up with the newest updates solely relying on website reviews and discussions with vendors. Like you and I, many end users are facing the same questions regarding relevant products for specific application, lighting controls, bench marks from other users in the lighting community, and milestones reached by municipalities, utilities and DOT’s. Where can you get the answers necessary to make the best informed decisions?


On behalf of the IES Street and Area Lighting Committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to attend our 32nd annual conference in Phoenix, September 8-11!



Dear Colleague,


Street and Area Lighting Conference

The IES Street and Area Lighting Conference is the answer! Last year in Miami, SALC attendees provided very positive reviews on our conference program and the professional and informed speakers who provided outstanding presentations. Our attendee base continues to grow from across the industry while we strive to maintain a small community feel, creating a great opportunity to network with industry peers. Our networking breakout sessions provide opportunities to discuss issues in-depth, one-onone with speakers and peers in a comfortable and open atmosphere. Many appreciate the spirit of inclusion they experience as they make new contacts for future reference. Through the gracious support and participation of our exhibit partners, conference fees which include breakfast, lunch and breaks are kept to a minimum. The combination of relevant sessions and case studies along with the other included amenities, make this one of the best conference values available. This is the only conference in North America that specifically targets the needs and concerns of the street and area lighting community. This year, the U.S. Department of Energy Municipal Solid-State Street Lighting Consortium (MSSLC) will hold its annual meeting at the Marriott Desert Ridge on Wednesday, September 11th in conjunction with that morning’s SALC Conference and continuing in the afternoon that day. Information on the meeting can be found at the MSSLC website at If you are planning to attend, we also invite you to attend the entire SALC program. You won’t regret it! The IES Roadway Lighting Committee will also be holding their meetings at the close of the SALC at the conference hotel. For more information, visit the IES website under the tab Other Activities for the link to the Roadway Lighting Committee meeting schedule and contact information. On behalf of the IES and the hard working people of the Street and Area Lighting Committee, I request your attendance in Phoenix, September 8-11. We’ll be most happy to welcome you.

pace that is unprecedented. The electrical industry has been slow to progress. Many of the devices we use today were in use a century ago. Receptacles, switches and the vacuum tubes (incandescent, fluorescent and HID) we generate most of our artificial lighting from are embarrassingly similar to products from 100 years ago. This session will reveal upcoming shifts in each of these areas and project a vision for how the next decade will impact us. Whether you find this new landscape scary or exciting, the information conveyed during this presentation will help you navigate through upcoming uncharted territory. Mark Lien, Director-Government & Industry Relations, OSRAM SYLVANIA

This five hour course introduces the attendee to the control equipment used for dimming, controlling and monitoring of outdoor lighting systems.

10:55am Pedestrian-Friendly Nighttime Lighting (or, who cares about Footcandles?) The lighting industry has understandably focused on footcandles and uniformity, efficacy, pole spacing, and cutoff when it comes to outdoor lighting. But those are not the chief criteria for all neighborhoods. This presentation will talk about softness, warmth, color rendering, safety, faces, visibility, adaptation, sleeping, star-filled skies and undisturbed critters. Naomi Miller, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

NEEA Streetlighting Research Results – Seattle

Subjective and objective in-situ streetlighting research results comparing LED luminaires to HPS for different lighting levels, different CCT and for dry and wet pavement conditions in Seattle. The results show that object/pavement color contrast is key in further detection distances, instead of lighting levels alone. Also, the community subjective evaluations favored white light over the lower wattage HPS. Nancy Clanton, Principal, Clanton & Associates, Inc.


Basis for IES Roadway Lighting Committee Standards

This session reviews the basis for some of the lighting recommendations produced by the IES Roadway Lighting Committee. Much of it research based, some of it consensus, this session will review the key influences on those recommendations and what is currently being discussed for future revisions. Topics will include crash/safety data, headlight modeling/impacts, key pedestrian visibility metrics, and many other considerations you may not have known went into the development of the final documents.

Beyond Turtles and Towers: Outdoor Lighting, Wildlife, and the Environment

Many lighting professionals are already familiar with the regulatory and design challenges posed by the attractive nature of lights for beach-nesting sea turtles and migrating birds. This presentation will review the last decade of research on this topic, which has greatly expanded scientific knowledge of the effects on other species, and provide insights on ways to reduce these adverse effects in lighting design. Travis Longcore, Associate Professor (Research), University of Southern California Spatial Sciences Institute and School of Architecture

10:20am Illinois DOT – A Perspective on LED Roadway Lighting The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) has thousands of HPS luminaires on its state and federal highway system.

Join our exhibitor partners for lunch and for an up close look at products and services from the industry’s leading suppliers.


Adaptive Lighting

With new lighting and controls technology, there are significant opportunities to reduce the impact of lighting and energy costs by adapting the lighting system to the needs of the users. Adapting a lighting system may include dimming, maintaining a constant light output or selective outages. This discussion focuses on approaches to adapting a lighting system, the impact on the users and the potential energy savings. Finally, a look to the future including “just in time” lighting and connected technologies will be considered. Ronald B. Gibbons, Director, Center for Infrastructure Based Safety Systems, Virginia Tech Trans Inst

Applying Benefit Metrics to Street and Parking Lot Applications to Increase the Value of Lighting

It is increasingly clear that lighting specifications based on photopic illuminance are not appropriate for these outdoor applications. The presentation will address two new benefit metrics for outdoor lighting, one aimed at specifying lighting based upon hazard detection in the periphery and one aimed at specifying lighting based upon brightness (i.e., safety) perception, and discuss how to quantify the value (benefit divided by cost) of different light sources. Mark S. Rea, Director, Lighting Research Center, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute This session will conclude with Rita Harrold, IES Director of Technology, covering IES updates.
