Data showing any safety effects in roadway lighting applications from substituting broad-spectrum LEDs for incumbent sodium or mercury vapor luminaires are limited. This presentation will provide an overview of a new PNNL study investigating whether converting to LED roadway lighting suggests any discernible influence on driving safety. PNNL is partnering with the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission and Virginia Tech Transportation Institute on this project that includes more than 60 municipalities in the Philadelphia region.
Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).
PRESENTERS: Bruce Kinzey and Jason Tuenge, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Bruce Kinzey has supported the advancement of energy efficiency and renewable energy for more than 30 years as a research engineer at PNNL. Since 2006, his work in support of the U.S. Department of Energy Solid-State Lighting program has focused on LED street and outdoor lighting applications and associated issues like blue light content. He currently chairs the IES Sky Glow Calculations Committee.
Jason Tuenge is a lighting engineer at PNNL, where much of his work supports the U.S. Department of Energy Solid-State Lighting program. In recent years, as part of PNNL’s Advanced Lighting team, Jason’s work has focused on collaborating with industry to identify and address the technology development needs of connected lighting systems.
