About Street and Area Lighting Conference

The IES Street & Area Lighting Conference is the only conference of its kind dedicated to improving the outdoor lighting business of electric utilities and energy service companies. We continue to provide an open forum for end-users facing the same questions regarding relevant products for specific application, lighting controls, benchmarks from other users in the lighting community, and milestones reached by municipalities, utilities and DOT’s. We strive to maintain a small community feel, creating a great opportunity to network with industry peers through seminars with speaker Q+A, breakout sessions to discuss issues in-depth, an exhibit hall and many networking events with speakers and peers in a comfortable and open atmosphere.

These sessions average 30 minutes each, do not feature the live Q&A, and are worth 0.5 CEUs each with one exception (the "Industry Updates session is 1.0 CEU, and an hour long). Upon watching a session in its entirety, a certificate of completion will be available for immediate download, this will not be emailed to you. You can also return to your My eLearning Dashboard at any time to retrieve copies of CEU certificates. Sessions are not available for individual purchase.

    Description: The development of lighting for pedestrians is critical for the implementation of outdoor and street lighting. In the past, efforts have focused primarily on crosswalk lighting, as crosswalks are typically where pedestrians and vehicles occupy the same space on the roadway. However, the sidewalk, non-crosswalk areas used to cross the road, and areas not connected to the road are also in need of lighting design guidelines. A recent research project has investigated these critical areas of the roadway. The results of this research and the developed guidelines will be presented.
