Energy efficiency versus light pollution – the role of high value data sets (HVD)


Light pollution has been rising with the increase of urban settlements. Artificial Light at Night-time (short ALAN) does not only influence our vision of the night-time sky but also (negatively) affects the human organism as well as the one of other living creatures. Especially, the so-called “blue light” plays an important role, which often found in energy efficient LED sources of light. In BeOpen one use case in particular, is focusing on health and safety in public spaces, exploring the “right” lighting as one variable of the solution.
