Abstract

Abstract—Lighting is one of the major energy consuming sector in any type of buildings. Lighting design plays a major role in Green Building concepts to provide optimized lighting levels and better energy efficiency. This paper is based on the lighting design of a food processing industry adhering to Food and Drug administration Norms so as to achieve Green Building certification. The study is conducted on a food processing industry located at Hyderabad, India. Green Building lighting design follows standards given by Indian Green Building Council (IGBC), American Society of Heating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE 90.1) and National Building Code (NBC) regulations to obtain credits for Green Building certification. Lighting simulations are done on DIALux software in order to analyse the Light Power Density (LPD) values and compared with the standards. Light Pollution reduction at the exterior environment is also a major concern to provide increased night sky access. This paper also gives an outlook of the light pollution from the IGBC perspectives.
