New standard for safer, greener roads

The Italian standards organisation UNI has incorporated research performed as part of EMRP project ENG05 'Metrology for Solid State Lighting' into a new standard for the illumination of road tunnels. The standard enables the safe introduction of LED lighting into Italian road tunnels through operation at reduced light levels identified within the project. This will lead to safer roads with significantly reduced power consumption and associated CO2 emissions.
