Abstract

Increase of demand for electrical energy and the recent energy crisis have been necessitated the optimum use of energy in all fields, which proves the importance of developing the new energy usage strategies for efficiency. The studies show the importance of lighting design parameters such as indoor reflection factors on the quality of the lighting. In this study, the effect of wall, ceiling and base reflection factors as well as ceiling height on indoor illumination are studied for a room of 5×5×2.8 m. It is clear from the result that the color and the furnishing of room are very important for both energy efficiency and lighting quality.
