The DesignLights Consortium recently introduced the first draft of Light Usage for Night Applications (LUNA), which establishes performance thresholds for specific categories of outdoor lighting in order to minimize light pollution and energy consumption, provide appropriate visibility for people, and limit negative impacts to the environment.

Specific requirements address uplight, light trespass, CCT, and controllability.
