The goals of this project are to: 1) Analyze new performance standards developed in Europe for a low glare retrofit system for outdoor luminaires and determine the applicability of this work to U.S. manufacturers of similar luminaires now in use in California; 2) Develop design concepts in coordination with a manufacturer for an energy efficient low glare retrofit system for outdoor luminaires founded on results of recent visual performance studies and research data from Europe and North America; 3) Develop and demonstrate a prototype retrofit system for outdoor luminaires with manufacturer's participation with improved performance characteristics.
