This thesis proposes and presents an option of reducing both the costs of power consumption and the light pollution caused by street lighting. Data were analysed using MATLAB software, and the obtained values were further processed in MS Excel.
The paper starts with a review of the development of artificial lighting and the history of public lighting in Slovenia. It continues with a review of the requirements regarding street lightning in force in Slovenia and the elements that need to be considered when planning street lightning. Moreover, the important legislative and regulatory provisions setting the guidelines for street lighting are explained. Furthermore, all the important data used in calculations are highlighted and displayed. In most cases, the calculations are supported with graphs to provide an even clearer insight. Alongside the results, the personal opinions of the author and the purpose of the proposed concept are stressed. Finally, the thesis concludes with an assessment of the possible energy savings (as share of the current consumption) with the implementation of the proposed light dimming concept.
